Yesterday was a whirlwind. I had my doubts when ONE young man showed up around 9:00 AM to start packing our house. I thought we would be here for days. Then, around 1:00 PM, a crew of four more showed up. Those guys busted a move! One in the garage, one in my kitchen, one in the dining room and the first guy still in the living room. Wow, did they move.
Here is my house this morning as I wait for them to finish packing and start loading the crates.
This is the view from my front door.
This is my kitchen.
This is the corner I've blocked off with our personal stuff we need to hang on to for another 2 and a half weeks while we camp out in the house. I'm guarding it with my life.
This is my bedroom. I blocked it off yesterday so we could sleep there last night. This morning it awaits in its nakedness for the packers. I will miss that comfy bed for the next month and a few days. Hopefully it makes it to the other side in one piece. It is one of the few pieces I bought all on my own after my divorce. No man had any say in that bed.
My sheets are in the dryer. I washed them as soon as I got up. I don't know why, because as soon as I unpack them in Rhode Island...I will wash them again. OCD much?
Here is a photo of the poor dog before she got carted off to the airport on Sunday.
Clearly, she's ticked off.
The dogs made it to Texas and are having a vacay of their own with our son. He will hang on to them while we travel and secure a house in Rhode Island. It has made the move much smoother not having the dogs under foot.
Tomorrow we receive our "Aloha Furniture" which is the cheap crap housing loans to us while our stuff sails across the Pacific Ocean. Pray for my stuff. It's not great stuff, but it's mine.
We will stay in temporary lodging tonight so we have a bed. I'm ready for some order again.
I am an Army wife and mother of five. I have been married to my Soldier for over ten years and we are currently in our fifth duty station since getting married.
I started later in life with my duties as an Army wife but have tried to make up for it by soaking up as much information as I can. I had some wonderful mentors as I joined this journey and now I want to pay it forward and mentor others.
I started this blog to document my life as an Army wife, mother, volunteer, and one who is trying to make this blended family a great one.
I love to cook, bake, and be a complete internet geek. I'm learning as I go, but as I tell everyone, knowledge is power, so I keep digging for more information!
