So Here We Are

We did it! With a lot of help from our friends and family, we loaded up the 26 foot rental truck, the van, and the back of the Ford F150, and drove from Tennessee to Washington. We went the southern route to avoid snow complications, so it took us five days instead of four, but we made it!

Moving is always an adventure, but this move has been more eventful than I expected, which is why I am still unpacking boxes (and not blogging) all these weeks later. We also took a week-long break from moving in and went home to Oregon for Christmas. We brought even more furniture back home with us...and inherited a piano too!

And now we are officially living in beautiful, wet Washington. We're not quite settled in, but we're not exactly living out of boxes, either. My kitchen is functional, even if it is not quite all put together, the bedrooms and living areas are set up and mostly clutter-free, and there are only a few more boxes left to unpack.

Unfortunately I am finding that even in Washington, the laundry, dishes, and grocery shopping do not do themselves. But that's something I'm learning to live with! :)

For some reason I didn't realize you were in Tennessee...and now you're gone! {sigh} So close and now so far away. Glad the move went well - hope you settle in soon!

so glad to finally hear the news that you made it! hope you have mail forwarding set up--I just sent your Christmas card to your old address and figured you'd eventually get it :) I need the new one, though! did you end up getting that house we talked about?

I am very excited to have you close and hope you don't mind that Roy shared your phone number with me. Hope that we can meet up soon!
