Yes, we are finally all in here in southern New York. But it was a process. There were times when I suspected some cosmic force didn't want us to go. Ah, New England. She is a jealous mistress, and doesn't let go easily! The first run went pretty well. We rented a truck from U-Haul … Continue reading Adventures in Moving
We are almost out of here. Well, almost in a 2 week sort of way. We have a truck reserved for this weekend, and are hiring some professional moving muscle to load it with whatever packed boxes can fit into it. If there's room, we will add a few more things. That will happen tomorrow. … Continue reading It’s Getting Closer
And then it's back to packing! Things are getting real as far as the move goes. We are renting a truck and some load-in muscle on Friday and then heading for NY on Saturday morning. The plan is to take as many boxes (and other things if there is space) as we can. The BaldMan … Continue reading Quick Update
Actually I guess it's more absent with leave, because I am the one who let myself go missing from the blog. Or something like that. Anyway, yeah, I have been neglecting things here for a while, haven't I? It's getting dusty in here, too. *cough, cough* I have just been consumed with packing for our … Continue reading AWOL
Until we go off on an honest-to-goodness vacation! We are renting, with the BaldMan's sister and her husband, and his parents, a house in Vermont for a week. After more than a year of not going anywhere unnecessary, this almost feels like some sort of escape or something. We don't have any specific plans for … Continue reading Five Days and Counting…
We bought a house. In Vestal, NY, which is in the southern part of the state, near Binghamton. We have been talking about the idea of moving for a bit, and the opportunity to actually do it came up this Spring, so we decided to go ahead with it. The move will put us closer … Continue reading So, We Did a Thing
But no refrigerators. Thank the gods! Our middle daughter moved this past weekend. The place she was in was taken over by new management and they were upping the rent too much, so she had to find new digs. So, we and three of her friends were conscripted (or "voluntold," as one of them delightfully … Continue reading Monday Musings: More Moving, and This Time, There Was a Color TV!
Well, I intended to finish this post yesterday, but that didn't seem to be in the cards. I guess all the activity over the past few weeks finally caught up with me, and I was really feeling pretty miserable. I thought for a while that I was getting sick, even spiked a low grade fever … Continue reading Monday Musings: On Moving, and Getting Back To Normal
Been a while, hasn't it? Moving is a big project, and it takes pretty much all of your time and energy. But we are in the new place now, and getting settled. There were adventures and all sorts of fun, of course, but things are beginning to look like someone is moving IN rather than … Continue reading All Moved In, and Almost Ready to Go
Creak Note to self: Get those hinges oiled. Gee, it seems pretty deserted in here, doesn't it? There are cobwebs on the ceiling, and your voice echoes in the emptiness. My fault, I know. I haven't been very attentive around this poor, neglected blog lately. And for that, I apolgize. And have to say that … Continue reading Monday Musings: Quiet In Here, Isn’t It?
