The move. The cats bathroom. The adjustments. The long story.

Tyler & Trinity don’t like sounds, and they don’t like change. I actually don’t know any other cats that are as scared of sounds as they have been their entire lives.

I planned the move to the new house as best I could. We moved most everything the day before and only had our bed and the litter boxes to move that morning. After that was done, we went back to get the furbabies. From the moment we left our old house the worrisome cries began. I thought it’d be best to start in the laundry room where their litter boxes would be so they had a smaller area to get used to before increasing it to the main house, with plans later to open individual room doors.

My plan was a bust.

Hubby thought it was because the laundry had tile floors like the veterinarian’s office. They both dove into the bed together and continued to fear for their life.

We’re in- but far from done

Whew, we are in the new house.

TnT are still freaked out at sounds but, I think it would’ve been harder had all our furnishing not stayed the same.

We moved in then turned right around to get our other house ready to list. We are still trying to put stuff where it goes, and we have lots of work to do but we can slack off some.

I’ll be glad when our water test comes back so we can quit hauling in water. I’ve already gave up on using the bottles water for coffee so I hope it’s okay. The health department waiting almost 3 weeks after our CO to take the sample. The stove has been ordered from Lowes for about 2 months but we still don’t have it. We also are waiting on an estimate for the floor repair from where they gouged the floor bringing in the washer and dryer.  Cooking on the grill and a griddle really limits your menu. I want to landscape some, plant more on the hedge and get our privacy fence up. I miss our secluded back yard. We haven’t had rain in so long the cracked,  hard-as-concrete ground just is too hard to work with now.  I have garbage bags over the windows for privacy as I not so patiently wait for blind samples to arrive. Jeld-Wen finally replaced the damaged windows in September we told them about in May. We have cleaned out the garage enough to get the openers installed and park our vehicles in the garage. I still have some stuff to sell but not near what we had. It’s still pretty obvious we downsized.

The design and drafting has begun

Wonder how long this house will take us as we’re 20 some years older than the first one, plus we’ve had tons of rain and a wet cold winter forecast is predicted.

You may want to buy stock in whoever makes ibuprofen.

BTW I am now taking offers on large or heavy items or offering discounts when entire lots or several items are purchased from http://KimsStore.com that I can’t ship on eBay. This house will be smaller and there will be no room for it all.

Also if you see less post activity from me you’ll know why I’ve disappeared for awhile.
