Moving and Settling In
Wednesday, September 21, 2016      3 comments

Moving is a very stressful thing. I have never done it before to the extent that we have just done. When I got married and moved from my mother's house to start a life with my husband I had literally only a few items of clothing and a mattress... Read more

Well we are all moved into the apartment. We went from a 2400 sq ft house with a huge kitchen to a small 1000 apartment with only 3 cabinets in the kitchen. Yes, really just 3. I have commandeered the linen closet in our bedroom as a pantry o... Read more

This week has been a roller coaster of emotions. We are in the process of moving out of our long-time home into an apartment in what we thought was a stepping stone to the building of our dream home. Turns out it may not be. My nephew, wh... Read more

The last day of summer vacation is always the saddest day. It goes by so quickly, much faster that any other day of the year. Today I walked at the park again. It is getting easier and easier and I have very little pain in my foot now. O... Read more
Day off from packing (finally)

Did three full laps again today and then later DD and I headed over to the mall in Ann Arbor to walk around and window shop. So far I am up to over 20,000 steps! Haven't seen numbers like that in months. Window shopping. I used to love w... Read more
Where Did That Come From?

More boxing and hauling yesterday and not enough steps to talk about but I was still moving so it is all good. Today, while quite humid, is cool enough and I headed over to the park early today to get some steps in. Did three (!) big laps and ... Read more

The house is slowly emptying. There are few pieces of large furniture that we can't move on our own, just too heavy. Our china cabinet and the fold-out couch in the basement. DH 'thinks' he can move that couch by himself but I really don't wa... Read more

So we finally have a closing date on the house and the farmland. Still over a week away but DH has been busy digging out all sorts of stuff from the vast cavern that is our basement. He brought up three (3!) Barbie cars yesterday. They were f... Read more

After resting my feet for a couple days I was back at it again. I am trying very hard to not go overboard. Did two long laps and a short foray into the neighboring neighborhood to check out a house I saw in the newspaper that was having an ope... Read more
Box Tales
Saturday, August 06, 2016      3 comments

Turns out those $1.14 boxes were too big. Hernia big is what DH called them. So we returned them today and got the next smaller size and finished boxing up all my books. DH is not happy with all my books. Granted a good deal of them are from... Read more
Boxing Up Life
Friday, August 05, 2016      2 comments

Started boxing stuff today and hauling to the storage facility. I did books from the den until we ran out of cardboard boxes. DH is pretty fussy about the size of the boxes we use. I mentioned that we could get some boxes from the grocery sto... Read more

Our house sold. And the farmland too. Got offers on both within the same week. We were actually offered more than the asking price which was pretty amazing. According to our realtor it is common if the buyer is wanting you to kick in part of... Read more

Well older DD and I have been back for 2 weeks now. The trip itself was wonderful. I had always wanted to visit Seattle and Portland and now I have. Not sure if I would return to either town but that is okay. We did a day trip over to Bainbr... Read more

Back resting my foot again. It is very hot and humid lately so it is a good time to do it. DD and I leave next Tuesday for our big hiking trip out west. Gotta be ready and able to walk all day or she will be a mighty disappointed young woman.... Read more
Day 3 and Feeling Great
Friday, June 24, 2016      3 comments

Walking is still a little slow but once my foot gets warmed up I am a walking maniac! Today I did 2 large laps with DH since he had the day off. It was a bit warmer than it has been. After our walk he headed over to older DD's house to instal... Read more
