If we were having coffee, we might walk a few blocks over to a little cafe near our new house. Or, depending on how sore I am, I might be awfully lazy and drive over. You’d certainly be welcome to come inside our house for a cuppa or two–we have at least found and unpacked the coffee maker and coffee mugs–but if you were to do that, you might be handed a box or two to unpack.
We managed to make the move on Thursday, though we didn’t finish packing the last of our things until that very morning! The move turned out to be quite the adventure, as our front door had to be temporarily removed in order for our very large purple couch to make it into the new apartment and we accidentally put furniture in front of all the bedroom outlets and then had to reconfigure. Oops! But honestly, there’s always some kind of hiccup in the moving process, and if those are the worst that we ended up with then I suppose it’s really not so bad. Nothing seems to be broken or to have been left behind, and the strong storm front that came through New Orleans yesterday wasn’t here until nighttime when the moving was over and we’d already settled in for the evening.
We were all hopelessly tired and sore yesterday, and our poor pup seems also to have been exhausted after the move. Poor fellow! He did have a difficult day on Thursday. We kept him in the bathroom while we were moving things so that he wouldn’t run outdoors, and that made him pretty unhappy. And then he had to be loaded into the car to make the trip across the bridge to the new house, which also made him unhappy—because unlike most other dogs I’ve had, Tank does *not* like to go for car rides. Also, storms are pretty much his least favorite thing (aside from car rides, of course), so the nighttime made the poor creature unhappy, too. He spent most of yesterday following me around and curling up right next to me (or in my lap) whenever I sat down.
I think that when Tank settles in, though, he’ll be as happy as the rest of us are with the move. Our place is a lot smaller, but it is much nicer and in a much nicer neighborhood than our other house. We also have a back yard, which is a nice change—our old house only had a small spot that was bricked over with no greenery except the moss that grew on the bricks–and there’s a little balcony just off of the master bedroom.
We’ve managed to get Little Jedi’s room and the kitchen unpacked and mostly finished, but we’ve still got a lot of work to do in our master bedroom, my office area, and the living room. Those are the plan for today, although perhaps all three might be more than we can do. One thing at a time, I suppose.
And with that, my friends, I’ll have to leave you for now. Sincerest apologies for comments I haven’t replied to and posts I didn’t get to read and also posts I didn’t get to write. We’re almost settled in, and then it’ll be time for me to do some house-keeping around the Monster. ❤
