Moved In

The moving van came at 7:30 p.m. on Monday and worked until 11:00.  They came back the next morning at 10:00 and worked until 3:30.  There are boxes everywhere.

Of course, I can only see the ones in the den because ....

.... as soon as they got here Monday, I took them back to the back house, the Cottage, where all the sewing stuff goes, and promptly fell down the stairs.  A trip to the emergency room and I was told nothing in my knee is broken but I need to see an orthopedist. (Earliest appointment I could get was 12/9.)  They didn't x-ray my leg which is swollen and hurts like all get-out. I can't stand on it.  My brother loaned me a small wheelchair (that he also needs), so I can get around a bit between the living room and the kitchen and a small half bath tucked under the staircase downstairs.  I haven't showered since 5:00 Monday morning.

I have no idea what the upstairs in the house looks like.  I'm sure the furniture and boxes are all piled around up there.  I have no idea what the Cottage looks like but I was told that they ran out of room to put all the boxes.  I have no idea about anything.

Cheese with my whine?

Vicky, welcome to the other LA.

Home in the Other LA

Penny and I left CA on Wednesday morning and are now in the other LA!  We stopped for the night in Phoenix AZ, Los Cruses NM, Kerrville TX, and then finally home about 4:00 yesterday (Saturday).  To say the trip was interesting is an understatement!

I wanted to get here in the daylight so she could explore the yard a bit. 

She had a ball rolling in the grass.  She'd walk a few feet and roll again.  This went on for half an hour.  We only explored one small area.  She has an acre and a half to roll in.  This will take a while!

It rained here last night.  The moving van arrives tomorrow.  I hope it's not wet but I think it will be.  They're going to have to off-load somewhere else and tote my stuff in a smaller truck to the house.  The big van won't fit under the oak trees.  It's always something!

I have my work cut out here.  The flower beds in the back are overgrown.  The house needs a good "spring" cleaning.  Painters, carpenters, plumbers - the joys of home ownership, especially a 1927 home.

But we're here.  That's all that's important right now!

14 More Days

My back hurts, broken fingernails, a broken toenail (don't ask), boxes piled in every room.

Tomorrow will be kinder .........
