It’s true – there have been no posts from me for a couple of days.
We’ve been moving. Whew!
But here we are. Simon set up my desk and now I have a computer set up (thank you!!).
Friday we picked up the truck and packed it. That night, we slept on Thermarests on the bedroom floor. We called it “camping.” The next morning we were up early to pack all the last minute stuff. And I gave the place a good clean. Then we hopped on the 10.15 am ferry out of Duke Point.
We were so lucky for the entire drive back. The weatherman had called for rain. Instead, we had blue skies all the way – well, until about 7.30 p.m. when the blue turned rather dark – black actually by the time we got home shortly after 9 pm.
It was a long day – longer for Simon because he had to drive the U-haul. But we had a good system. I followed behind him and we made frequent stops for the dogs. It all went so smoothly.
Today we unloaded part of the truck – the stuff that has to be here – and then drove the U-haul to Nakusp for storage. But we have to go back tomorrow to unload because regulations dictate that our contents have to sit in quarantine for 24 hours before unloading.
I’m happy to be here. Very happy. But I am still revving at too high a speed. My brain is tangled up in what I still have to do. And I don’t function well in chaos. Hell – not well? Understatement – I don’t really function at all. My entire focus is on putting in order.
But I’ve done enough for today.
The kitchen is pretty much in order. The basic office is together. The bedroom is fairly okay. The closet is a mess. My bathroom stuff is still in a box.
But I’m here and and it’s my new life and over the next couple of days, everything will come together. I’m telling myself to breathe.
Bottom line – I’m here and this is home and this is my family and my life.
And that is exactly as it should be.
