Total Chaos - but I am back online!

Thursday, September 27, 2012

I have internet! Yeah! After a 3 hour install, business and residential accounts, broken dvr and worn out personal modem! I am ready to relax and watch TV, but love seat is currently on top of the couch! Need to remedy that!

First priority was to make sure my pets were taken care of. They are used to the home, but to much chaos and my dog is trying to figure out where her yard disappeared to and why she is going out the back door now instead of the front door! Is is so so good having them back!

Next priority in the move is to put the office together enough to work tomorrow am. Done!

Go to the grocery store and stock the fridge as that is empty!

Have food and space to eat properly.

Clean bathroom.

Have major pieces of furniture where I want them and start unpacking.

Decided to have a giveaway box next to the box I am unpacking as I didn't have enough time before we moved and it is a good way to get rid of boxes!

Unpacking begins!

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

This has been such a stressful time, but so worth it!

I appreciate all of the words of encouragement! My eating has not been well and with limited use of the internet - at least until this weekend, it will probably continue. I did get in a short swim yesterday and some time in the hot tub to relieve my sore back.

Today we unload the truck and pick up our animals! I can't wait to see them!

As my husband says - Chaos Rules! At least for a few more days!

    Sounds like you're uba-organized, I would be all over the place. I wouldn't worry to much about your eating habits, it's so difficult trying to get everything sorted and this takes priority right now, you can concentrate more on it once everything has been sorted and you're more settled. Good luck with everything.

Take care. emoticon

    Good for you for bringing fun fitness into your chaotic time. I know hauling boxes and unpacking are good fitness activities, but they're not necessarily fun. Cheers!

Moving Day: Part 2

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

This morning we will be moving our mobile home up to Watertown SD, which is a little over 100 miles north from Sioux Falls, SD. We are moving too a smaller town near a lake. I hope everything goes well and they hope to have it set and ready for us to move into by 4 pm today - however, no utilities until Wednesday afternoon.

I am so thankful for my sister, her husband and son for helping. Who knew we will still fill a 26 foot truck! Oh my goodness - and that was allowing all the appliances to stay in the home! Scary! Much more decluttering to do!

Spent a little time with my daughter but I think this is hitting her very hard. I love her very much and will miss her, it will be strange not having her pop in whenever.

Off to jacuzzi if we can get the dang thing to work! My back needs it!

    Wishing you best of Luck emoticon on the move! Being near a lake, sounds like a nice place. And while it will be hard not to have your daughter pop in as often, Now when she makes the drive, she'll stay longer.

Moving Day: Part 1

Monday, September 24, 2012

Today we load the truck and need to have everything out of the house by noon. I still have so much to do yet!

Still finishing up laundry, need to pack for me since we will be out of the house until Wednesday morning at the latest.

This afternoon, we will turn in change of address and pick up a prescription I am forgot about. I sure I will think of a half a dozen other things to do as well.

I miss my animals and the house is just not the same without them. I can't wait to get them home!

Time to get moving and quite messing around on the computer!

    Pretty crazy that you have time to blog in the midst of all of this! It will soon be normalized and you'll have your pets with you.

Countdown: 1 day!

Sunday, September 23, 2012

Getting started early as it is going to get crazy!

I am off work at 2:30! Yeah!!!

My animals are going to the kennel - I feel so rotten about that but I know it is for the best! I want them safe!

I will then be picking up the moving truck. I am thinking some family members will be here Monday morning to pack up. Still trying to confirm info w/ the mover to make sure that works out!

My husband returns tonight around 9 pm so we can finish packing the rest.

My shed was moved to the neighbors this morning, so last major thing I was worried about is done.

The rest is up to me or my husband. I think my dad will help me get the moving truck.

I will be so happy by the time this is done. I have not been doing well with my eating, so I am looking forward to getting back to a regular routine again. My scale is pretty angry with me right now! :(
