How I Survived the Move…..

Hello everyone! It’s only been a few days since I went off-line, but it seems like forever! I’ve missed each and every one of you and I have a ton of reading to do! 🙂

I’ve survived my move and it actually went relatively smooth. Only one thing got broke so I think it was a great success! I got the whole house moved in one trip. I couldn’t have been able to do it without a lot of help. Boy did I have help! We had us a nine truck and one trailer convoy from the north side of town to the West side of town. Whew, in 70 – 100 mile an hour wind! At least it was warm but we all thought we were going to be blown away.

Friday I spent all day closing on the new place and packing last-minute crap. I hate the last-minute stuff. You know the stuff you can’t do without (or at least think you can’t) till the very last hour of the big move. Saturday I was up by 6:30 am and packed and cleaned some more. Then 9 guy friends showed up with pickups and a trailer and they packed the house with its ton of boxes and off we went within 3 hours! Those guys were super awesome!

Now I have a new place full of boxes to un-pack. At least I can take some time with them. I didn’t have internet hook up till today and the poor phone guy had to work outside in blowing cold wind, sleet, hail, snow and rain. We had it all today! It even thundered and we had lightning. Miserable weather!

My cats were traumatized! They hid for almost the whole day, finally coming out at night. They seem to be doing better today. I have a lot of work to do yet, but it will get done. I just couldn’t stay away any longer from my blogs or my online friends!

Sam seems content laying in his bed under my computer table, so even though the weather is making me crazy, we are snug in our new home.

Maybe I should write a short story about it all, with a few embellishments added to make it more exciting. Ha! 😉



Now I better start getting caught up on all the awesome posts I’ve missed……….. than get some much needed sleep………

  1. Congratulations on your new place and the smooth move! I thought about you on my trip and happy to hear everything went well. Now you just need some spring weather so you and Sam can go out for walks 🙂


    1. Hey Tiny! Thanks for thinking of me 🙂 It’s suppose to start warming up towards this weekend. So here’s hoping the weekend is warm! Right now it’s pretty nippy. How you doing?


  2. Congrats on the move! 🙂 I was going to send you an email asking if you’d like to guest post at the end of this month when I do the moving thing myself… but I understand if you’re too busy! 🙂 Let me know either way. I’ll let you email me because I got it wrong last time, haha! 🙂

    And, you should definitely write that fictional account! 😀


    1. See, if I would have been thinking straight I would have asked you to guest post on mine when I moved! Great thinking! I will email you for sure rara!
      I have been seriously thinking of a story, it’s floating around my brain. 😉


  3. So glad to check in with you and find you have moved and it went well. You are so lucky to have friends. I don’t think Rich and I could find nine guys if we combined our friends AND family! 🙂 What was up with those winds? That’s F1 tornado winds around here and would bring down trees and power lines.

    Anyway, hope you are getting settled and enjoying your new home!


    1. Maddie!!! I was just thinking about you and bam! there you be! How are you doing lady? Haven’t seen you around much either. Course I haven’t been around much myself. 🙂
      The winds here in my part of the world gets wicked this time of year. We seem to live in a wind tunnel. haha!


  4. Hi JP,
    Belated congratulations on your move.
    Good to hear you had the support and help needed to make the transition as smooth as possible.
    Enjoy your reading and have a good week. 🙂
