Well, almost the moving part. Vince is coming with the final load today.
But I got here yesterday! I seriously thought the packing would never end. I mean, who know we had so much....ahem.....stuff. By Tuesday night when I finally crashed in a hotel bed after midnight I could no longer feel my feet~they were just numb!
I wish you could have seen me today, driving our pickup truck with a backseat full of 13 potted plants: 2 houseplants, 1 pot of flowers and 10 tomato and pepper plants. It was like a garden nursery in there! They seem to have fared well on the trip and I really do hope so because they have been doing great. There are the cutest little tomatoes and peppers growing all over them.
(On a sidenote: I'd love to know what you recommend for an organic/all-natural pest control for the veggie plants. Please tell me!)
I am so ready to get crackin' on the unpacking now! My sweet mom went over to the house this week and cleaned all the cabinets and lined them with shelf paper for me. So they're all ready for me to fill up:) And fill them up I will!
Just thought I'd show you a pic of the house we have leased. It's a downsize for us~we're losing about 400 sq. ft. in the house, plus a tool shed and a huge attic. But we are gaining a garage and I do like the house. I think it's going to work well for us for now. The yard is sort of the sad part. It's really tiny and there are NO trees. No anything really. Just a few shrubs and a bed of weeds in the front. We've definitely got some yardwork to do! It's always fun to have a clean slate to do whatever with though, right?! And there's all those apple seeds that my kiddos have insisted on saving, too....
I promise to not be so scarce from now on. Now that most of the crazy part is over, I can get back to regular blogging. I've really missed it! There are lots of post ideas in the cooker:)
