high praise!

If you picked Friday in the mm poll, you win high praise! Hooray for you!

We arrived yesterday around 3 p.m. The movers are here moving our stuff in, and after that we’re gonna return the truck and then walk the dog. It’s in the thirties here, I’m guessing. I can’t find my coat or my gloves. My fingers are practically frozen, because the doors are open while the furniture comes inside. And I have no complaints.

The house is awesome. It’s 600 square feet bigger than our Florida house. The neighborhood is adorable. And from the den and the gameroom, we have a spectacular view of the mountains! The gameroom is upstairs, so you walk in there in the morning and see majestic sights everywhere! I can’t wait to tell y’all all about it and show you lots of pictures. Our lease is nine months, but I told Frank I’m perfectly fine staying here longer.

More later. After we walk the dog and go see Frank’s grama, I’ll try to give you a good long update.

BTW, we’ll be unpacking for months.

  1. Okay!! I’ll call off the search party. Glad you made it safely there. Looks like fresh snow in Evanston and Alpine Junction in WY. I believe you had to go thru one or the other yesterday. It’s snowy and 14 degrees in Casper right now. Welcome to the West. Get yourself some Carhart coveralls and you won’t even notice the weather. Of course, no-one will notice you either.

  2. Sounds idyllic and I know you are thrilled to be there!
    Can’t wait to see pictures!

  9. So glad you arrived safely. Have fun with the unpacking! It is always good to do a purge when you pack and again when you unpack. It keeps my home manageable and I move a lot!
