Less Than Ideal...

So I sit here at our old house waiting for our movers (who are actually our friends and Dave's co-workers) to show up so we can move all our furniture to our new house. The circumstances are less than ideal. For instance, Dave moved the camera cord already, but not the camera, so while I have taken pictures for this post, I can't upload any of them. I will have to wait until we have internet at our new place later today, and by then I'll have new things to talk about so this post will remain picture-less. So I'll tell you where I would have inserted pictures.

We've already picked up our truck to load the furniture into. While we've been moving as much as possible in the back of our Toyota Matrix, some things just won't fit in it. So we rented this bad boy.

And yes, I am making Dave drive that thing because big trucks (or big vehicles of any kind) aren't for me.

As of yesterday afternoon, I told Dave "I am done with the moving process but the moving process is not done with me, so we are at an impasse." Yes, I ran out of moving energy. After a good night's sleep and some comfort food grilled cheese, however, I regained a little more momentum and managed to get through the rest of the evening. And now our house looks like this.

Now I am going to eat breakfast...

...and wish I knew where my fleece was. It's cold here this morning. And oh yeah, I'll probably fold some laundry because It. Never. Ends. Even in the midst of moving.

And now, for the last time from the house where I have been blogging for over a year, over and out. Catch you on the flip side.

ps. If any of you are reading this before 9amEST and feel a strong urge to come up to Ontario and meet me, we have lots of moving for you to help with. You won't find a better offer out there on the internet today! (Okay you might, but do you really want to take advantage of those offers???)

  1. Hang in there! I'm about to drink a cold Coke in your honor! :P


Thank you for being interested in my life as I blog it and for leaving a comment. Comments make me happier than reading a good book and drinking a cold Coke. Almost :)
