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.
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.
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.
