My machines may be under the impression I’ve abandoned them🤷🏻‍♀️

  1. Moving is hard work. We moved several times early in our marriage and it took a couple times to get it right lol. We didn’t label boxes one time. Another time we just shoved things in boxes any which way. That was loads of fun to unpack. I’ve also opened boxes that were basically full of junk. Why did we have to move a box of junk just to toss everything at the new house? I learned real quick to pare things down every year so it’s not overwhelming when it comes time to move.


  2. Hope the moving fairies help you make a smooth transision.
    I have moved 14 times in my life. Not a fan. I know there is at least one or two more moves to go. DH hates the weather and the fishing in Fl. I’m not a fan either but my daughters all followed us here. The grand babies are here. He will have to drag me kicking and screaming to a new location……………LOL!

  3. I moved WAY too much when I was younger (before I got married). Since marriage I’ve only moved twice, and into this house 22+ years ago. I should pretend to be moving and get rid of my stuff as if I were, then I might be able to rearrange my furniture, lol.

    Hang in there. It was good to see and hear you with an update. At least we can keep up with your moving shenanigans on the book of face.


    1. Haha yeah if only I could be motivated when I’m not moving. This move has been exciting & a shit show all at the time.
      This weeks Saga includes car repairs that may exceed the value of the car…hubs is already gone with his vehicle. And possible repairs to the house in the thousands… I could write Dear Abby, …. From Stranded in N.C. lol
      I just need to keep the end in sight.

  4. I know this is a super stressful time, but I can’t help but be excited because your proximity will be accessible and I see a meetup in our future! Take care and breathe as much as possible. I’m thinking so many good thoughts for you and your family!


    1. I so excited for a meet up! Quilt Festival! Warm winters! Good restaurants! Beach time! Lots to be excited.

      It’s been as you know an extraordinarily long process that started before Thanksgiving last year. The end is actually in sight. I keep telling myself that everyday.


  5. Your machines know you love them and would never abandon them. They’ll wait patiently until you are working together again.
    I lived in Houston for 7 years and there were years when I came home to Baton Rouge every weekend (an interesting young man lived here). That’s an easy drive, and I probably wouldn’t be reading with my book on my steering wheel and doing my homework on the way at this age. So I’m VERY excited that you are so close. I’m really going to try to go to the quilt festival this year.
    I lived in a very big house in Las Vegas for a long time, and the house I am in now is tiny! The house I will be moving into (Molly’s house) is about twice as big, but not nearly as big as the Vegas one. But…I live alone (with Molly soon), so I’m okay. A lot of families downsize when the kids get bigger, and it’s hard but I think you get used to it and settle in. Big houses need a lot less “organizing” and are much easier to keep clean without it looking cluttered. There are just more places to put things–simple as that.
    I really appreciate you taking the time to share with us during your stress-fest instead of just going away on us. You’ve got this under control, and it’s not that pleasant, but you know what you’re doing and know it will be over soon. It was 98 degrees here today, and you’ll be moving in a lot more heat and wet, but you’ll be fine.


    1. I’m excited for a bit smaller house. I seriously hate cleaning the big one and I love the house but I really don’t need the space. I’ll miss North Carolina because it has been a wonderful place to live. But I am also excited to be back in Houston.
      It’s been a long time since we lived there last. The summers where I am now are not to different.
      Today I went for a walk at 9 am because it already was a feels like 95. So it is the other seasons that will be the big change but I don’t mind.
      I sooooo excited for Quilt Festival!
