All moved in! (Almost...)

This weekend was a whirlwind of packing, moving, unpacking, packing... and lots of driving, some of it in a rather spendy uHaul truck.  We are living in the new place but all my sewing stuff is still boxed up in various places (not sure where it's gonna go yet!).  We are comfortable, though, for the most part, and I made dinner last night in the new kitchen and a a smoothie for breakfast today.

No internet at the new place yet, either!  Although I promise posting will return as usual soon.  The best part about the move so far?  It took me 12 minutes to walk to work this morning.  Wow!!  I am on some sort of high right now.

Pics and updates later!  Hope you had a good weekend and enjoyed yourselves not moving.  ;)


  1. Glad it went well! Packing *itself* is never fun... I think the worst move was to this house. It was all of three blocks away, from a townhouse rental to our first house/home. I was SO aggravated, wishing that I could just throw it all outside and our things would magically re-appear in our new house. lol

  2. Don´t you love the short walk to work?
    Good luck with your new place.
