The Big Move!


bOXES

 Why yes, I do still have a classic Nintendo....

We're almost done packing everything up, sorry it's been so quiet lately- packing has taken up so much time! I also had a work conference in St. John's, Newfoundland recently, which was busy-busy (and totally squashed my earlier ambitions to go to Rhinebeck this year). But I did see a seal!

 This friendly seal apparently gets fed by the locals, hence her being so tame for this close shot....

I've also been working on a new design, but it's been slow going. I think I'll need to churn out a quick little knit just to feel like my knitting mojo is still in the pink. Mod Monday will go ahead as regularly scheduled (and it's a knockout) but I can't wait to get some updated photos and show you guys the new place! I hope the kitties and the hedgie adjust well to the move... moving can be so hard on furry (and prickly) friends.

I'm sure your pets will love the new place. I thought that Stella was perfectly happy in our apartments until we moved to our house, it was love at first sight for her! Good luck with the move!

Oh I HATE packing and unpacking! I hate moving homes!

Moving is the pits but it so nice to have a new place and fresh start! I'm sure the furkids will love it! Can't wait to see pics!

Yayay!! I'm so excited for you. Good luck with the move, Julie!

I'm in the same boat...the moving boat! It is killing me that all of my time has been spent on packing, cleaning, painting, moving, unpacking, organizing, and more. I wish I had more time to just sit and knit. Our two kitties were really stressed during the move, but have since settled into their new home, with lots of boxes to climb on and explore. Treats seem to make them more calm and relaxed ;-)

Best of luck to you, can't wait to see your new place.

Ugh, moving is such a time suck. Good luck, and congratulations again!

That seal is ADORABLE. She's smiling! Looks like she's not missing many meals, either. Too cute.

I can't stand moving - it is one of my least favorite things to do. Good luck with unpacking all of those boxes. Cute seal pic!

Monica said...

Good luck with the move. It's always a mountain of work, but the pictures of your new place look great, so it's all worth it....

While it's clear that most of the comments have been about the ickiness of moving, I can't help but be a little pollyanna'ish and say how excited I am for you! Sure, moving is tiring and can be stressful, but I also think it's about new beginnings and new memories. Happy moving and settling in.
