Moving Pains

Well it could be worse.

The VA appraiser was at the new house yesterday and we hope to have his report today.  That's the last hurdle; we close August first.  I don't know how the garage is progressing but WolfAlpha is feeling pretty good about it.  And since we're having a drought he hasn't had to mow for about three weeks now.  The house is almost packed and I've even washed a few walls.  We're making quick progress on the stuff in storage and giving the trash men a workout.

We have three extra cats until we move (it's complicated) and except for scooping the litter pans 3 or 4 times a day (ick) the "blended family" thing has gone fairly smoothly.  I've been edgy about six extra weeks of two-homes-one-income, but that's going well also.  I have scratches and bruises from wrestling boxes and such, but no fibro symptoms, and I think I'm finally learning to pace myself.

I did a little housecleaning on my blog page as well, and I'm almost half way through revamping my blogroll.  I've been reading blogs and commenting, but I don't have time to concentrate on my own writing, although I'm making notes of topics I want to explore...

I'm sure looking forward to the end of this limbo, but as I said, it could be worse.  Much worse.



  1. Sounds like overall, things are going well, which is great! Hope the moving continues to be fairly painless.

  2. Isn't it amazing how much shi...stuff you can accumulate over time. But you will love it when you only have one house to work with. I believe we have our house sold, too. Can't hardly wait to get rid of that payment. Just take care of yourself.

  3. I'm so happy for you Coffeypot! It seems like you moved forever ago!

  4. HOpe that the final report is all clear and that the moving goes well.


  5. My late father said the best way to move was a gallon of gasoline and a book of matches.

  6. How cool that you will be able to grow your food at your new place. We've really enjoyed being able to have a garden the past few years - it certainly helps out with the grocery bill!
