I’ve moved. Almost. We’re on our way…
Our furniture was supposed to be delivered last Wednesday, but due to blah blah blah delays it won’t be here until this Wednesday. As the scheduler said, ‘Just at the end of your given window.’ I did not remind her that date fell technically two days beyond our given window because what’s the point? When you’re moving you need to roll with things as best you can.
The good news is our new furniture was delivered, early in fact, so I guess it all balances out in the end. New furniture arriving early is pretty much unheard of, but we had a steady stream of people in and out of the house Thursday and Friday, and hubs and I woke up in our very own brand new bedroom for the first time Saturday morning.
And for the first time in 32 years we have a king sized bed. The room needed it and we splurged on the softest sheets ever produced (Boll and Branch) and beautiful new bedding and I love it so much I may just live in my bedroom. I’m not kidding.
We also have a new couch and two new chairs for the great room and it’s possible I took an accidental four-hour nap in the new chair Saturday night. Hubs says he tried to wake me up three different times but I was having none of it. He even made himself a sandwich and apparently offered to make me one too but I have absolutely no recollection of the conversation. I was beyond exhausted.
We have some pieces for the covered deck and a kitchen table and chairs, but no dishes yet. I scrounged up two mugs and the coffee pot so we’re basically golden. I’m anxious to cook again and hope I remember how. That’s a skill you lose if you don’t use it on a regular basis and I haven’t cooked since sometime mid-October. I’m having company for Thanksgiving (I know!!) so diving back in to the deep end. All family though, so lots of helpers and forgivers if things aren’t perfect.
Things will not be perfect.
I have all kinds of thoughts about moving and the new house, but I’m on hubs computer in a local lunch spot while he makes a business call from the car. No Internet/TV is just one more thing you have to roll with and we’re doing our best. On the bright side we’re missing the 24/7 election coverage so winning! In fact moving during a volatile election season is a fabulous distraction from all things distressing.
I sip my morning coffee as the sun rises over the water and I think to myself-
…what a wonderful world.
