The countdown

Related image

I have shared this little video of some of our potted plants which, like me, are waiting to be moved to more permanent soil.

The countdown to our house move is now past the one month mark, and about 90% of our things are currently in boxes, making the place a maze of cardboard. I can’t wait to get to the new house so I can unpack and rearrange it all.

It’s exhausting, but also oddly addictive – once you start packing, you can’t stop filling those boxes. Please wish us luck as we go through this process once again… and, oh, also wish us many peaceful years at our new home. I really don’t feel like doing this again anytime soon.

  1. Anna, I wish you all the luck in the world! At least the two older girls will be able to help, if only to unpack and stow their own things. Just remember, you’re not moving again for a long time; you don’t need to get it all unpacked allatonce.

    When we were moving my stuff out of the apartment and into this house The Squire labeled a box “BOOTS” and then piled something else in there – blankets, I think. So we had one box which ended up being marked “NOT BOOTS”. It’s been a family joke for years – “what in there? Not boots.”
