Meet Betty the Bomber. We sold our broken down van and bought this in April. We packed her full of everything we could–clothes, essential toys and books, our photo albums and other memorabilia–and sold the rest.
This is how the past two months have looked.
Six weeks visiting family (and being homeless–literally without at home AND internet, but family graciously provided both).
Thirty-two hours of driving on the road.
Seven different states.
An 11:30 pm arrival to our new, but empty, home.
Over 1500 miles and we all arrived in one piece, well…except for the microwave and Ben’s fishing pole. Everything/one else? A little battered but happy.
Four days and 10 stores yielded great results:
Cupboards full of dishes, pots and pans, and food.
Fridge full of goodies.
Drawers packed with utensils.
Living room decorated with a coffee table, sofa, couch, chair, and TV.
Dining room fitted with dining table and chairs (and plastic to cover the carpet from toddler messes).
Favorite meals served once again (including the cherished hot dog spaghetti–with the hot dogs burnt).
Suitcases full of dirty laundry unpacked, washed, folded, and put away.
Toys and books stored in a convenient location.
Internet and cable hooked up.
Yes, we are [in our new] home! Furniture, dishes, and all!
As I’ve had limited time to access the internet, I feel a bit lost. Tell me, what have all you been doing? Feel free to link to some of your favorite posts, I would love to read them! I’ve missed all of you dearly.
