In a way, the last few days have passed in a blur. We are finally able to say we are mostly moved 🙂 . Yesterday was the moving day for the ministry things. To be able to keep shipping website orders, we wanted to wait to move TItus2 until we had the family settled. So Titus2/MOTH came over, and we’re remarkably settled.
Here are some pictures from the last several days.
Things that have happened to different family members
- The new shower door falls off, but you’re able to grab it, and it’s not broken.
- You try to tell someone your new address over the phone. “South 15th” was easy enough to say, but “Santa Fe Street”, is harder. After explaining it several times to people on the phone, a helpful brother suggested saying all three words together, instead of going one by one. The suggestion was tried, but the receiver didn’t get it either. Oh well. We’ll keep working 🙂 .
- When Melanie was over for a meal, she is asked by several different people where things are to be found in the kitchen because she organized the kitchen.
- Honey slept in Dad and Mom’s room for several years, until we got new carpet, and then she wasn’t allowed on the carpet. For the last five or six years, she’s slept in the boys’ room. Now that we have tile in the main part of the house she can go wherever she wants. The first night, she was in Dad and Mom’s room. The second night, the boys wanted to see if she would stay in theirs. No, it didn’t work. Why? the girls wondered. How did you know she didn’t want to? —- Because, they said, she panted and stood at the door.
- When you get up in the night, and your stomach feels sick, you head for the kitchen to grab some Tums. You feel like you’re in another family’s house–it still feels so new!
- Since the house is a reversed floor plan from the old house, several things have happened. For example, you’re backing out the door with a box, and you reach for the door handle, and you can’t find it. Oops. It’s on the other side.
Monday, school resumes and for those who are out of school there is still a lot to do unpacking and organizing 🙂 .
