Moving day that turned into a moving weekend!
We moved our son on Friday to his new apartment. And lets just say, we are not as young as we used to be!
Friday morning saw a nice sunny and cold day. With the help of friends and his sister he moved all of his belongings to his new apartment. He recruited his sister who had her things packed and ready to move into his larger bedroom, so she was more than willing to help. Two years ago our son moved back home after losing his job. Thankfully he found one quickly but stayed home to save some money and now he was ready to leave again. When he moved back so did all of his belongings. Our attic filled up quickly as did our den and living room and bedroom as we re-arranged our belongings to accommodate his.
I got home from work on Friday afternoon all fired up to re-arrange the house back. That was short-lived as we soon realized we are no longer 20 or 30 or even 40 anymore! But Friday night we managed to move the larger pieces of furniture and in the process my daughter broke her tv stand and I broke my desk or I should say they fell apart on us. Lesson learned – buy better quality!
Saturday was spent moving all the little things from one room to another and today was spent putting it all back together. Now as you know I was raised in the military and spent time as a young military wife so moving was a way a life. Noticed I said young and was?
When I was a young wife I had a whole house unpacked and ready for living within 2-3 days while taking care of young children. Now at a more “mature” age, I find it is an accomplishment to move a few things around and still able to stay awake at 8 pm!
We would move one piece of furniture and take a 1 hr break, move another piece and take a nap. It took me all afternoon today just to move my fabric/craft containers and crafting table to my husbands new “museum” that is now home to many of his antiques. Of course watching tv was a nice distraction. Especially since I was watching the Animal Planet Puppy Bowl.
Our house is almost back to normal and we have more to do. So the next few days I will be catching up on all of your blogs and see what you have been up to. I think I am going into withdrawal – I missed having my evening tea with all of you.
Right now I have a date with my comfy chair and I do think a heating pad is calling my name.
God bless you week!
