Day Two From Hell

Today is Thursday and the movers pack and load the truck and will deliver to Waskom the next day. We spend the night in our travel trailer, the one which Hubs has been living in for over a year in the company's work yard. What an adventure to say the least! The cats spend the night in our new home, while the dogs are with us at the trailer. It is so bad that Hubs even gives me his bed and he sleeps in the bunk end. He is never that nice, but I will take his bed. Hubs is like a giant in this little trailer. It is made for short people like me, though I am even claustrophobic in this tiny little home on wheels. The yard is as bright as day at all times. FYI, a work yard is all gravel with security lights everywhere, lots of stacked up pipe, equipment, metal buildings, garbage dumpsters, Hubs travel trailer and it is not a pretty site! We survive the night. Whew!

Next morning Hubs goes to get more of our junk from old house with another trailer. Let's see... how can I word this politely. The cleaning lady is at my old house and still has my key to new home, I have no key... I am waiting for the movers to deliver. I mention it to Hubs the night before, but he swears I did not say a word. He drives all the way to Kilgore and I have to call him about the key! GREAT! Hubs is waiting for carpenter, the cleaning lady that is cleaning our old home and loading crap err... junk up from the storage building. He has to return to Waskom, I know he is so excited that he could SCREAM! All the while, I am waiting for the movers to deliver our stuff.

That was Friday. The movers unload our furniture and are gone in about three hours. OK, there are boxes everywhere! Most of Friday was a blur to me. Just lots of unpacking and thinking. Saturday is our big trip to the big city to Alltell, Home Depot, Sonic, Wally World and I can't remember where else, but it took us six hours to run errands. If I was ever going to leave, Saturday would have been the day. Hubs is working on all kinds of projects and his real job keeps calling him. He has to leave and he is mad because someone did not do their job correctly. He leaves in mad dash to work. I am ready to leave and go back to my old home. Hubs has a temper and I have just about seen and heard enough of it. So if I were going to leave this would be the day. May tomorrow be better. I can't find my camera connection to post photos, but will later. For today, we are still married...hahaha!

I guess you figured out that I am connected now! Yay! For a few days, I had no TV which is OK, but I really missed the Internet. Between unpacking, and finding my way around in the country, I will try to catch up on reading my blogs. Thanks you guys for all the nice support. It really helped.

Isn't moving just a nightmare... even when you're going some place good. I'm glad you have made it to your new home and are hooked up to the computer again. Alas, between giving my workshop and having computer troubles, I didn't see your reiki request until just now. I'll send you some reiki right now, though.

Congrats on the move. Soon all the boxes will be a memory and you'll have met new people and feel truly "at home." If you're like me, you will try to get everthing unpacked over night as though there is some kind of race against time, when in fact you have all the time in the world to unpack. Be good to yourself and enjoy your new home.

Glad you made it and the two of you are still alive.

They do say that moving house is THE most stressful thing you can do. I guess you just proved it!

Soon you'll be all settled in and have lots to tell us about your new home and surroundings. I'm sending Reiki to settle the dust. :)

You know they say moving is right up there with death, divorce and job change. I am here to tell you YES!

Raven, thanks for the reiki to settle our stress. We need it very much.

Dr.John, thanks for the support. This too shall pass. Each day is a little better.

Akelamula, that is true about the move. Thanks for the Reiki to settle the dust. I wish I could find my camera cable?

Thank you for all stopping by...

Wow! what an adventure or trial, whichever way you wish to look at it! hehe

Hope it starts feeling like home soon!

Sheesh, so you didn't get to just move on into your new house? I think it's funny that the cats were there before you!

We moved 5 years ago after 25 years..what an exhausting nightmare... Hang in there...

Jessica said...

Wow...I know exactly how you feel...maybe a little too much. I'm only 22 and I have moved about 10 times in my life....I've lived in CA, TN, MI, NC and FL.....

Moving is one of the most stressful times ever....I've always found comfort in my family being there every step of the way...you have to cling to something familiar and comforting.

I also used to find it helpful to hang up all my pictures within a few days of moving because they are also familiar....theres something about having pictures on the wall that makes a house feel a little more like home.

I wish you all the luck the world can provide and I am also sending you extremely calm and soothing thoughts...I know how stressful this can be. I also loose my hair when I move!!
