Our Big Move – Part 3

Moving Boxes

On the last post, we were awaiting out the escrow closing on our new house. It was delayed by a day, as there is a shortage of appraisers here. So bright and early on December 1st we closed and headed to the house. We got here about 10 minutes before the new bedroom set, washer/dryer and fridge were delivered. The cable company was right behind the delivery people. It was such a hectic first day. Thankfully we didn’t have to spend another night in our RV. Although we didn’t have the rest of our household goods from California, we did enjoy a full kitchen, a real big shower and sleeping on a normal bed again.

Unpacking

Our stuff from CA arrived on the 5th. This made for another very hectic day again. Furniture was in place, but hid behind mountains of packing boxes. We tackled the unpacking room by room. Packing paper was in constant stacking and smoothing on the dining room table. Boxes were emptied and broken down into flats of cardboard. These items were then neatly stored in the garage. We have friends that moving from CA to Idaho in the spring, so we will be taking these to them for their packing needs.

Snowy Front Courtyard

Next we did a little Christmas decorating…nothing anyway near our usual, but festive inside and outside. This was followed by all the other things that need doing when relocating to another state: new driver’s licenses, auto registration and voter’s registration. We got all that done just before the first snow. But the icing on the cake was a white Christmas. It was my first white Christmas ever and hubby’s first in over 33 years. Lovely!! Beautiful!! We used our new snow shovel too. FYI…the snow blower arrives next week.

  1. Moving is such a big thing. We moved within our town 5 years ago, that was a lot of work, although compared to the intercontinental move almost 17 years ago it was a piece of cake. How fun to have a white Christmas. I hope you will have many happy years in your new home.

    1. Thanks Carola. I can't even image what it must be like to move internationally. Happy New Year to you and your family.
