I think we're gonna like it here!
This is a good house. It has good light, good design. Good flow. Brian and I feel good here. Very tired, and stiff and in pain, but still good.

Most of our stuff is still in boxes, partly because most cupboards and drawers need to be cleaned before we can move into them. This morning I cooked breakfast and then scrambled to locate the silverware before it got completely cold. I had asked one of the movers who packed the kitchen to put a certain pile AND the silverware in a box labeled with our Open First tape. He eventually tossed the stuff from the pile into the middle of a big box of other things, along with the tape, which was not used to label the outside of the box. The silverware was at the bottom of another box entirely.

There's more to say but I have just eaten a late lunch and the couch in the sunroom is calling me to nap. As I told my mom when we reviewed our plan on the calendar: Wednesday we sleep.

Glad to get an update. Yay for good first impressions!

(Boo to inattentive packers.)

Thanks for the update; I've been thinking of you extra strongly these past few days.

Good planning: "Wednesday we sleep."

Ah, yup, that's a mover's packing story, all right. Especially the part about the roll of Open First tape inside the box.

I look forward to visiting you and your delightful family in your new home. Hey, you're 5 hours closer! I can do the entire round trip drive in the same time as it used to take me to get from Wales to Ypsi. Now for that ever-elusive Copious Free Time! (It's my busy season and I'm still recovering from the 2300+ mile drive earlier this month, or I'd be right down to unpack books. Maybe when things slow down late October-early November.)
