I'm a Cheesehead now

Well, we're here, moved across the border. The move was horrendous. Never again do I want to do that (mostly) alone. My son worked (at his job, not moving) every day except Tuesday, when we had the U-Haul and moved the heavy stuff Other than that, I would start early, at 6:00 a.m. or 7:00 and work until 2:00 a.m. at filling and carrying boxes. By Wednesday I was sore from head to toe, but just had to keep going, to get it done.

As it was, I did have cleaning help at the end so we worked until "only" midnight on the last day, Thursday night. Geez, it was brutal. My hands are cut up and the palms are bright red and sore, like they've been burnt. The phone installation was messed up, so while we had hoped to at least get a land line by Thursday, we don't have a phone or internet yet. There's a story behind all of tha. I'm at a cafe writing this while waiting for the Scone Club meeting. I have a goose egg on my head from being clobbered with the push lawnmower wicked wooden handle. Ouch, it dropped me to my knees amd that's the only time I lost it and started bawling.

We have a secret room in the new apartment, another story, if I can bear to relive the move someday when we get internet service at home. Despite my complaining about the awful awful move--I love our new apartment!

Hope all goes well with you all, I've missed you. Happy Weekend!

Well, it seems you have finally settled. It is funny how I can't even manage to get the day-to-day stuff done...I can't even imagine moving!
Good to hear, also, you have moved to the cheese-head side of the world.
Now, leave those boxes alone and have a nice frosty coctail!

Wishing you loads and loads of happiness in your new home!

You should be treating yourself to some lovely hand cream to get your hands back to normal!

I think that a glass of wine and a bubble bath are in order. Congratulations on getting it all done.

oooooo I have lost my comment!!
I am glad that you have finally moved it is some thing that I don;t fancy doing. I have just read all your comments and I suggest that you do all that they suggest...sleep, eats loads of scones, wine, cocktails and hand cream OR do all of them together .
Look after yourself and I hope that you all settle down quickly
Now a secret room !!!

I'm glad to hear about your new place. Hugs to you for having to move everything mostly by yourself. That's a tough one.

Take care.
