The deluge

22 Nov

Oh, yes and YES!  Our household goods arrive today — Huzzah!

It’s going to be a crazy day with boxes and movers and unpacking and shifting and sorting … if not for NaBloPoMo I wouldn’t be here at all — but I said I’d blog every day this month and darn it, I’m doing it.

This was my last view of our boxed goods:

See that horrible tacky fake bronzed chandelier thing in my old dinning room?  We have the same one here in our UK house.  Tastelessness spans continents.

I am having no luck at all working out in my head what will go where in our new place.  The room configurations are different, the storage is different, the only space big enough for our bed — which is so large Pottery Barn doesn’t even make it any more — may be the garage.  It will all work out, but it is going to be a productive sort of chaos for a few days.

Still missing are our cats — not missing of course, but living it up at Nana’s house — but we miss them.  Another month or so and they’ll be here, too.


See you on the other side!

    Today all I can muster for you is – everything ends. The unpacking. It will end. Good luck!

      heh heh! Bed is upstairs now, it’s not coming down without the help of 4 or 5 guys or as kindling. But it does make me a little crazy that my car gets its own house, so not fair, lol

    I really hate moving. I keep threatening just to burn the place down the next time I move. Good luck to you!

      Ha! All the *stuff* and all the *sorting* oh my goodness! Sometimes, yeah, you want to leave it all behind and start fresh …

    Glad you are hanging in there with NaBloPoMo. I’m following you in my Squidoo article. Of the thirteen I followed only two or three have dropped out.
    Happy Thanksgiving.

      Hey thanks for saying hi! This posting every day thing requires more time than I expected … half of it spent reading everyone else’s blogs … =)

    Hooray! You finally have part of yourself back! I was so busy with my own move that I got behind on your blog. I’m just getting caught up now. So excited you have your things.

    We brought our queen size bed over from America and the box spring wouldn’t fit up the stair case. My hubby had to saw it in half and screw it back together again in the bedroom! ha ha! Hope you’ve not had to do the same with your pottery barn bed!!

      I admire you for moving again — I told my husband I may never want to leave the UK, just because I can’t stand looking at another box. ‘Oh noes’ for your bed — funny, though! We have made ours fit but it’s a dance to get around it, lol

    […] getting around to unpacking the rest of our boxes.  I’ve talked about this before.  And before.  And before.  If I don’t unpack all these boxes soon, I’ll be talking about it […]
