Cheery Bye

I am leaving y'all for a while. Moving is in the dead heat faze. Boxes and tape and tears. Moving trucks and trailers show up Saturday. I hope the six inches of snow melts before hand. Painting is almost done. I will shampoo carpets today and tomorrow, I hope. My right arm is almost shot.

We will be in our new digs by Sunday. Mark leaves for out of town trial on Monday. I am trying to get his stuff together now because I'm not sure I will be able to find it on Sunday night. Mollie comes home on Monday. Cats aren't speaking to me. Found WhomperDinky sleeping in Mark's suitcase. I'm not sure what that means. Phone lines will be disconnected here on Saturday. Will be reconnected in new house on Monday. No High Speed Internet available in Grover. I will be back to using a dial up modem. Gad, will take me hours to read and post. Just found this out yesterday when phone company called up to ask directions to Grover....

Oh, by the by. The owners of the rental house are putting in a new water line. They began digging yesterday. They are trying to beat the ground frost. I have no water. Thank God for the new house. We are showering over there. I"m not sure how I am going to clean this house without water. We are hauling buckets of water from Grover to flush the toilets. I feel like a schizophrenic pioneer. Hard to cook without water. We are showering at the other house. I look like Hell.

I have come full circle. We were moving on the exact same dates last year. When I get more time I will do a retrospective of my year. For now I just have time to post this and then start taking the computer components apart.

Adieu dear friends, until we meet in the new house, take care of yourselves. Love Bea

Take care, Beula. Don't overdo it. The cats are just upset with all the activity going on. My cats always get into my suitcases when I'm going somewhere (or even the gym bags). I think they like to hide.

I'll be thinking of you on Saturday.

Sending hugs and support your way...my moving adventure is still fresh in my mind (and the remaining boxes) and DB was out of town for a lot of it, so just know I sympathize...you'll be happy when you're IN. :-)

I will miss your running commentary on moving. I think that I would rather lose a limb than go through all that a move entails. (Though a move is always an excuse to get organized!!) Hope everything goes according to plan, with a minimum of upset, storm, and stress. We're all thinking of you!!!

Good luck - we'll miss you.

Last house (almost 20 years ago) when they got down to the last bathroom (the one that we used to shower) they crossed the water lines - hot was cold, cold was hot. So every time we tried to take showers - no hot water. Of course we associated this with the water heater and not the lines.

Incidentally - we were watering the new sod with hot water.

We showered at the pool (indoor club pool) that was about 10 miles from our house.

This was in NO kids, working days.

Your water story made me remember it.

Good luck with settling in - finding stuff in boxes. I do remember those looking for stuff in boxes posts from last year.

Dear Bea,

I can appreciate the boxes, the work, the struggle and the fatigue of moving. As well as the emotional component of 'moving' to a new space. Congratulations on your new home, dog and life. Take care of yourself too!

Blessings on your new home.

Love, Ethel

are you plugged back IN yet? Been thinking of you and hope that you have been able to find a pillow to sleep, a pot to cook, your toothbrush, and that you have running water (hot and cold). Are things looking up yet? or still in the midst of a sea of boxes?
