Monday Musings about Moving…

Living amidst chaos…
And tons of unpacked boxes in my sunroom!

But the stove and microwave are in place and working so we don’t have to get take out for all our meals anymore. And we have our coffeemaker and the turquoise bowl for popcorn, so we’re pretty well set!

We haven’t found the silverware and dishes yet, so we are washing plastic silverware to reuse. My sweet David said to me tonight, “But we can throw the paper plates away, right?” Lol, yes we can!

When I start to worry about the huge job in front of me I remind myself how far I’ve come in the last 18 months. We will be just fine! Stay healthy and safe, everyone..,

  1. That was nice; I’m moving too but I really like change so I don’t mind the work. Tomorrow will be the first day in the new house. This move is only 10 min. or so from where I am and I will be that much closer to my oldest Daughter-we will love that! I know where the Coffee shops are, the fitness place and the grocery store; what more could I need? This will be fun!

    1. Congratulations! I didn’t move far from my kids, just into a house that had never been updated in 24 years! So new paint, new floors, painted cabinets and vanities, new appliances. Still need to do the baseboard and last coat of paint on cabinets in kitchen.

  6. Unpacking is a little like Christmas, no matter how well you label the boxes there are always some surprises.
    By the way, my mom always washed her plastic silverware! She was too frugal for her own good! 😀
