Location, location, location


This time I have a good excuse for disappearing off the face of the blog for a while. We just moved on Wednesday. Check that – the movers came on Wednesday and moved all of our furniture and we brought over some essentials and have been spending the night here ever since. Our former house, however, is still littered with all manner of non-essential items. So not only have I been dealing with all of that I also was without a computer from Monday morning until Wednesday evening, as it was in the shop.
Since we started staying here we have been going back to the other house to work on packing periodically. We bring over a carload of stuff every time we come away but the bulk of it will be moved via rental truck which we hope to be ready to procure a week from Monday. Our intial plan, because we are idiots, was to get a truck this past Thursday and bring at least part of the remaining contents over, despite the fact that most of said contents had not come within five yards of a box, let alone actually taking up residence inside one. It finally occurred to us that if we waited on the truck and packed up everything first we could probably get it all in one load. We also have the added bonus of being able to draft my brother-in-law to help us by waiting until a Monday to do it. So that is the current plan.
Meanwhile I am not the least bit sorry to be out of the old house and I’m having fun figuring out how to arrange this one. We have even more square footage here than there and we might actually be able to afford to buy some new furniture to fill it up. We’ve already been out looking.
Will write more later about the new place. I may even be persuaded to do a photo essay of some sort once I get things put in order.
Completely unrelated aside: 6 more days until I see 1964! And 7 more days till I see them the second time! Hee. I’m a Beatle geek.

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.

  1. Moving for us, 17 years ago, was such a painful experience that we swore this house was it. I kind of like your casual, one carload at a time strategy — with a big bang (truck) at the end. I think I was a bit shell shock moving everything in at once.
