Home Sweet Home Forever If I Get A Say

Colin and Jake catching rays at their new ground level front door.
We moved in a steady downpour last Thursday and Friday.
I owe Michael and Kiereney forever for moving all the boxes.
The movers dropped my washer and it now leaks---they have been notified.
Roger is in heaven among boxes in his bigger kitchen.
I am at peace which is good because I am exhausted and wondering if I can get an IV of energy to get me through.
I go in 10 days for the yearly thyroid cancer testing.
Roger is doing well.
Colin didn't like the closer traffic to his yard and taking care of business was rough for a few days but now he's an old pro. He can run up the 15 stairs to the bedrooms but sits at the top and cries because he can't get down.
Jake can do both and it frustrates Colin to no end when they are in pursuit of each other.
Several thousand boxes surround me but the living room is complete except for pictures hung, the kitchen is functional as well as the bathroom and we have a path to our bed as well as a bedroom TV courtesy of the kids who gave up one of theirs. I had one in Virginia and have missed it for the last 3 years.
The whole move is worthy of book and movie material but I'm too exhausted to think of all of it now. Kathy and Bobby were here and Kathy put my living room and dining room together furniture wise. I was brain dead by then. I am so blessed to have such good friends, kids and husband.
Our ex-landlord was a jerk and withheld $100 of our deposit but he will get his someday.
I realized last night that the living room is set up just like my beloved grandparents' living room was and no wonder I feel like I'm home.
God is good all the time.
Hope all my blogger friends are well. I will begin to play catchup. I have missed each and every one of you. But your thoughts and prayers sustained me. Trust me on that one.
I also got a new phone when we switched to Verizon right before the move and have an LG Env Touch that I haven't had time to read the instructions on beyond making and answering calls. I don't even know if I can access my blog from it but I surely hope so as I will be doing mega recliner time recovering.

Have been missing you, Nessie! Now I know where you have been hiding!

Hope that you are able to get out from underneath everything soon. You are often in my thoughts and always in my prayers.

Hugs and love,

Oh Nessie, dear heart. How are you? I worry when you are too quiet. I am so glad you stopped by my blog and said hello. YOU are one of my greatest blogging blessings. I am so honored to call you my friend.

I will be sending extra thoughts and prayers on Tuesday. I just know that you have wonderful angels watching over you and that everything is going to be just fine! Still, I understand the apprehension. I am so happy to know that the sea glass brings you comfort. I am sure that I will come across more with your name on it someday.

It would be our pleasure to meet you and Roger, someday! I would love that, too.

Hang in there, dear one.

Hugs and love,

PS-have you settled in yet? new address?
