Moving Day!!


*This was supposed to have posted on Friday , the 14th.  It was my first attempt at scheduling a post ahead of time.  Apparently I did something wrong.  sigh…  No matter, I’ve moved!  I’m sore and tired, but getting settled in.  I’ve taken some vacation time to get things done here.  I am so, so happy!  

It’s finally Moving Day!!  It’s been a long time coming, but today is the day that I finally move into my home!!

I’ve got boxes stacked in every room.  I’ve been living out of a box for several days now.  I’ve been trying to eat up what I have in my fridge so that I don’t have to transport any more refrigerated items than I have to.  Even the coffee pot is packed!  Horrors!!  🙂

So that my closets are ready to move, I’ve had to plan out exactly what I will be wearing for several days.

At the new place, I’ve scrubbed the bathroom and the kitchen.  I lined the shelves in the kitchen and I’ve had the carpets shampooed throughout the house.  I purchased and assembled some storage shelves for the garage.  I’ve had some trees trimmed in the yard and the lawn mowed.

I’ve accomplished a lot!

Around noon, my Big Brother will be at the house to install new door locks for me.  (his housewarming gift)  He will also be bringing a picnic lunch for us that my sweet sister-in-law has prepared.

I’m as ready as I can be and I keep feeling like pinching myself because of all of the wonderful Blessings that are taking place in my life right now!

Wish me luck!  Thank you for joining me on this journey!  Penny  ❤

It’s strange how eerily quiet it got when I asked for volunteers to help me move.

Above is a picture of SOME of my stuff.  I have boxes EVERYWHERE!  Under the bed, behind the couch, in the closet, on and on and on…

When I came to Texas 3 short years ago, I had very little.  I left all my furniture behind.  I brought just the essentials and my most treasured keep-sakes.  And my cat, Otis.

I moved from a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home into a one bedroom apartment.

Now, considering all of this, WHERE DID ALL THIS STUFF COME FROM?

I honestly didn’t think I had much as far as possessions go.  Apparently I was wrong.

I think that the move from Oregon was easier.  Either that or I forgot what a giant pain in the butt it is to move!

You may not hear much from me in the next few days.  Thursday is the Big Day for me!  Wish  me luck!

By the way, if anyone of you shows up to help, I promise pizza and the beverage of your choice!  🙂
