We went over to the new place today, and I finally got the photos of the inside I’ve been promising. Not a lot, since we were more interested in documenting issues (we’re renting, and a record of what it looked like when we moved in is important) and measuring rooms prior to hauling furniture. Since this house is very close to where we are currently living, the plan is to move slow and easy, a bit at a time, until we’re all the way in – we’ve allowed a month, but I’m hoping to be settled by Thanksgiving to have the feast there!
The kids were very excited about the new house, as was the dog (she gets the freedom of the fenced yard). They wanted to explore the wooded hill behind the house but I asked them to wait until we were there when it wasn’t getting dark. The house still needs a bit of work before we’re all ready to move in – cleaning, mostly, as it’s cobwebby and musty. I have my work ahead of me. And later today, a final exam for Botany, which means I’ll have my Thursday’s off, and Tuesday until 6 pm.
I’m so looking forward to going back to country life.
