Moving has begun

The movers arrived early this morning to start our packing. They went into our basement and saw my stacks and stacks of boxes, bins and stuff and their eyes just about popped out. One mover asked my husband what we are going to do with all the stuff and my husband replied that his wife just likes to collect it. For some reason it has given me an uncontrollable case of the giggles everytime I think about it. If only he saw what I gave away, trashed and gave to Salvation Army. I may never get a job as unpacking all these boxes will take me years! Good thing we are moving to a bigger house!

My surgery went well thanks to a super surgeon. I am feeling so much better than I imagined I would. Christmas was low key this year but still wonderful. Adding this bundle of joy to the celebration made it extra fun- next Christmas will be even more fun with more grandchildren!

The grand-girlie makes an especially cute package!

A larger home? Well, then, my dear, you are going to need all the things in those boxes. Try to get some help on the unpacking end, too. You never know what those packing guys have done!

So good to know that you can giggle and have fun so soon after surgery. Great knowing that you are feeling so well, too. It only keeps gets better!

It's wonderful that you are already feeling better after the surgery!

Good luck on the move! At least you can giggle at this point, LOL!

Glad to hear surgery went well!

So the movers/packers are starting their work....keep your sense of humor through the moving process and you will be doing good. Always good to laugh!

The new name will come floating in on the breeze and probably not too long after setting up housekeeping. Either that or you could hold a contest! :D

When do you join your stuff?

When I left the home that I thought I'd grow old and die in, I took that last long walk through caressing moldings and looking out windows for the last time. I even shouted down to the furnace, "Goodby you old baster!" If you've ever read E.B. White, you'll understand the reference, but it speaks pretty well on its own. ;>

How wonderful that the new owner will love the home and the garden. That surely does make it easier.

A new email yet, Sue?
