Moved in...sort of

Just a quick note...we are getting ready to head back to the "old" house to get another load of stuff. Our first night in the new home was Christmas eve. We moved more stuff all day Christmas day and had Chinese take out for dinner. Monday evening on the way back to load up again, my car broke down and is still in the repair shop. Hope the repair isn't too costly. I have a long list of things I need ...turntables for the kitchen cabinets, drapes for a couple of windows, etc. Still cleaning and painting doors and trim too. I'm really getting too old for moving. Every muscle in my body is sore, my fingernails are down to stubs and my hands are chapped from cleaning. To top it off the last few days we have had record breaking cold. Many, who have lived a long time in Florida have never seen it this cold in December for this long. They are forecasting 70's by Friday. Well back to work...

We closed on our new home yesterday. I was beginning to think it would never happen. Now the work begins. First, the whole house needs painting. We figure it's better to have it all done at one time, before we move in. Then we have to move all our furniture and other stuff. I think the "other" stuff will be more work. I would like to get in at least a week before Christmas. The Christmas tree will be put up but probably no other decorations this year. Tomorrow will be baking day, so I can get gifts in the mail. Sewing will be on the back burner for awhile, at least until after the first of the year.
I don't know how Lucy and Lexi will take the move. Lucy is mostly blind and deaf now, so changing her environment won't be easy on her. Forgive me for rambling but my mind is racing with all the things that need to get done. Don't be surprised if there isn't another post for awhile.
