Living with Boxes
This is the first time, since my blog began in 2010 that I’ve missed a blog day. It’s been Monday and Thursday every week wherever I was. This has been a crazy week. We “moved” on Wednesday, me in the car with Buddy and boxes, and Dave in a U Haul truck. This is phase one. Phase two, after the house is sold, the big stuff that needs to stay in the house for now, will come in a moving van. We planned to stay in the new old house, but filled with tools, sawdust, the smell of paint, work men and no water, the house wasn’t ready for us. Our air bnb friend was full, so we drove 2 hours farther and spent the night with our daughter in Oriental. They’ve just moved there recently and she is also unpacking boxes! We were back at the new old house Thursday, back to Oriental for the night, and back here again today. We have water, boxes, minimal furniture, paper plates, tp, and light bulbs. And, as you can see, our internet has been installed. The work that’s been done is beautiful. Everyone has worked so hard, Dawson gave them all the day off to have a nice Easter weekend with their families, and he’s headed for the beach to relax. The interior is painted, the exterior aluminum siding is off so we must decide on a new color for our new old yellow house. It will be something approved by the Historical Society, and I’ll give Dawson the final word. He hasn’t made a mistake so far, and his attention to detail is amazing.
