The dust settles…..


We’ve been working non-stop since Friday to get the closing and the big move over with, and I’m happy to say that it’s DONE. The unpacking is just beginning, but we’re living there in relative comfort so that’s saying alot.

Our friends and family were incredible – everyone pitched in and we got more done in two days than I ever imagined possible. We had two 24′ truckloads full of stuff, including some MASSIVE furniture pieces. Our doorways are narrow and our steps are a nightmare, but miraculously everything fit.

Here’s a photo of Teague and I, tired and happy, in front of the empty Ryder truck (click for a larger version):

Huge thanks to both our families, who provided us with food, lots of moral support, and much needed cleaning supplies. They spent a full day helping us clean and move in, and removed the cat-pee soaked rugs without gagging! They also squinted real hard and managed to see the potential we’re seeing in our house, which is appreciated.

Thanks also to Jason, who loyally trudged through the mud for four hours with us when we loaded the first truck. Good man!

More moving day photos to follow…..

Comments, Thoughts, and Feedback

Mam had this to say on 11.12.04:

Happy birthday, Teague! Best wishes, Mindy! This is going to be an exciting adventure not only for you, but for all of us as we watch your dreams unfold. Hey. We think you’re nuts, but the acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree. We are reminded of peeing in the woods, washing dishes in a bucket, letting a goat strip bark from logs just to get a break…and lots more insanity when we bought the land and the abandoned house we lived in while building our log house…from the ground up! So good luck to you…and don’t let even our grimaces get you down…you’ve got all the time in the world…and a toilet that flushes, even if it does go in the basement!
Love, mam

We love to hear from you, dear readers.
