weekly update...

Seems I can only get to the blog about once a week...  The behind the scenes work is busy.. I am cleaning and packing and trying to organize.  I have learned quite a bit  since we have moved 13 times in almost 40 years of marriage...  


So I am  spending my days going through drawers and culling them out. (the move is based on weight!) If I don't want it at the new house, I am getting rid of it here..trash, freecycle, donate...I will use them all..

I am also trying to get satellite tv scheduled, find internet access (will go with Wild Blue, which happens to be our ONLY CHOICE so don't tell me if you hate it!) and today is "find the trash companies name"...there is only one so it shouldn't be too hard...  and then we also have to call and cancel all that stuff here...
Every weekend when we leave we take a load to the new house..  We drove out late last night and took a load from the garage...lawn mower, big steel shelving unit, misc rakes and shovels...

And I wish I would have taken the camera because the concrete guys had been there forming up the pad for the new workshop...  I hope to get some photos tonight if it isn't too dark...

And we went and got a new laundry tub so I know what we will be doing this weekend.

So this means no sewing at this house.  I have to get my Habitat Challenge quilt finished.  I only need to hand stitch the binding ...  and I have a challenge due for another guild and I haven't even started it.  Well, I did start it, but I didn't like it so I want to start over.  I might not get to that..

I will be updating the other blog ...but I fear I will be absent from this one until after the move.  Wish me luck and I'll see you on the other end...hopefully with a nice, clean, organized sewing studio...

Oh forgot...I got an email last week and was sent an item to review...and GIVEAWAY!  So watch for that...cause you know I need to add something else to my calendar...lol

Nancy, I know what you are going through. We bought our new house last year, and I was doing exactly what you are doing. But then in August when I fell and fractured my back, all came to a halt!!!! So I am going through things now to dispose or recycle. It's a big job. Looking forward to pictures.

See you on the flip side Nancy! Can't wait till you are back in the sewing swing of htings!

I cannot imagine what you are going through. We've moved three times in 40 years. Only three! We have accumulated so much stuff here, they are going to have to take me out of this house feet first.

Best of luck and see you when you return!!!!

Good luck with that actual moving there part of the "experience"!!! We will be here when you get a chance to pop back into your blog!

Good luck with the moving. I would love to hear what you think of Wild Blue when you have it for awhile. No DSL in my area and I haven't heard anything about Wild Blue.

Hi Nancy, I know in the midst of all your packing and moving you probably don't have a moment to go and check who won the 14FQ giveaway bundle on my blog but the post is here anyway...

Good luck with all the nitty-gritty details! Sometimes I feel like a professional mover, so I kind of have an appreciation for what you're going through. :)

Phew - moving is so much work! It'll be good when you get settled in at your new locale and can get back to the things you love! :)
