Monday, So what I hope happens today!

     Well between Lil sis, myself and Hubs we took 4 loads to the new house.  The garage which was full of boxes is now empty except for about 7 food storage containers full of wheat, and all of Hubs tools. We used my SUV with the seats down, and Lil sis's SUV with her seats down, and Hubs pickup. It was amazing how much we got done.

     We also emptied my large food pantry that was down stairs in the laundry room.  We were not able to get into the new place until after 2 p.m. but we still got so much done.  We were very tired and dirty.

     Tomorrow morning we have a friend with a truck, another with a truck and flatbed trailer, our truck, 6 missionaries and a few assorted older boys from our church all coming at 9 to help us move. I will call U-haul tomorrow and cancel the truck for Tuesday as with the trailer we won't need to rent it.  That is nice.

    While we were moving food storage I found three buckets that were cracked so that was a good thing.  We can replace them and not lose the food or have bugs get in it. I am a little afraid that this house is too small.  But I will make do.  We just have so much stuff.  We have lost a bedroom, and a bathroom, plus we had two fireplace mantels to display things and we had a front hall closet and a couple more smaller closets in our hall.  We also had built ins in the front room for display.  I will have to be very ruthless and  downsize many pieces.  I have several things of my mothers that I kept and I will have to get rid of some of them.

     One thing we did gain was a two car garage and a large storage shed that can hold so many of the things we had in our one car garage.  Plus we have another smaller shed close to the house for all of the lawn equipment.

     We have a full storage unit that is about 1/2 the size of a bedroom full of things we have not looked at in a couple of months.  Mostly Christmas and decorations, and china and just Stuff.  I think we are going to be shocked by what we find in there.  We started storing things right after Christmas for this move and we have forgotten what we put in the unit. It will be interesting.  I foresee many items going on craiglist.

     I was able to finish another $1000.00 chart yesterday, but can't figure out how to download pictures on this new i phone.  So that picture will have to wait until  I have time to figure it out.  I printed out a big old list of things I have to get done tomorrow having to do with the move and am wondering why I did not do some of these earlier.  Like have addresses changed, have a new internet server hooked up.

     I don't know when I will be up and running again, but I will try and keep things posted  even if it is a short blurb through my phone.  By this time tomorrow night we should be in our new house.  We actually sign the papers on Tuesday at 10 am.

     I am exhausted, still no baby.  I think I will have to go up to Moscow and have a talk with B's stomach.  "Your Grandma wants you out!"

     I can't wait to take pictures of what I can get accomplished.  I at least want the beds set up and some of the shelving on the walls before I let the crew go home.  Our nephew will come and put our tv's up for us later this week.  We also have to buy a new dryer.

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.



  1. Glad you got so much done and have so much help coming.
    Take care and I am sending many blessings for you all.

  2. Hey, inconvenient all these months without a dryer, but at least you didn't have that to move. Good luck. ou have a great crew of helpers it seems.

  3. Good job on getting four loads over to the new house, Kim. That is wonderful news that you are getting so much help today and can even cancel the U-haul for Tuesday!

  4. Things are coming together. Suddenly things don't seem so stressful.

  5. You are crushing it! Good luck with the rest of your progress.

  6. Wow, you are amazing! I am so glad that everything is working out, and I hope you will be very happy in your new home.

  7. okay... I understand moving to smaller place (try 2200 sq ft to 800 sq ft). The first year of that I realized a lot of what I was keeping I was not using and when my health started going down farther. I acknowledged I really didn't need to keep it for any reason. Put the extra in storage and wait a year...

  8. You baby boomers destroyed your own children's future, and then laughed about it and blamed it on them. Do you realize that you are going to end up in a retirement home where you are going to get treated like total trash, and abused? Your children won't be able to help you, even if they wanted to. Karma's a bitch, you boomer scum.

  9. God bless you dear. Everything will come together.
