Well, it has been almost 3 weeks since my last update, but I can finally say that we are moved!!
By the 22nd of September, we had most of the smaller things over at the new house and unpacked and we were ready for the movers. Welcome “Two Men and a Truck”….well, actually 4 men in our case.
It was interesting to watch them pack and load each of our precious items. The coolest thing was how they carried many of the items on a strap that was connected to a harness on their backs.
The weight was distributed evenly between them and they just had to use their hands to balance the item.
It only took about 1-1/2 hours to load everything up and then we were off to the new house…..
It only took another hour to move everything in and we were ready to roll.
The next week was spent organizing and cleaning and trying to catch up a bit on the normal things of life.
Then, before we knew it, “Two Men and a Truck” were back again, this time with our daughter’s furniture that we are storing while she is living in Chicago.
and our son, Brian, drove her U-Haul up on Monday. She is now happily ensconced in a new city, a new apartment and a new job!!!!
As of yesterday, we declared that the moving is complete, so here are a few photos of the finished rooms…..
This is officially called a keeping room, but in reality it is a relaxing place where I can sit while my sweet husband cooks dinner!!!…..
This is my wonderful office. In the old house, I worked at a desk in my kitchen and had client meetings at my dining table. Here, I can even close the French doors into the room and have complete privacy…..
I wasn’t sure about the color scheme for this bathroom until I remembered the small quilt that brought all of the colors together…..
Everyone gave me a hard time that the first things moved were for my studio, but unfortunately, it is the only room that still needs work. I did a bit of sewing, but only to make storage bags for some of my floral stems.
Finally, both cars fit comfortably in the garage which truly signaled the end of the moving process……
Now to catch up on some accounting work and make a trip to Texas to visit my mother. Maybe, just maybe I can get a bit of creative time in too….
