Home sweet Clarksburg
After a long-long day yesterday (including packing, finding boxes, running some stuff around to be stored for the summer, packing my little Atreyu full of stuff, finding a place for Finnegan to sit safely, and driving ~ 6.5 hours) I am home! I will be here for a little over a week before the travelling adventures of my summer commence.
The drive went well...even though I left later than I had hoped. No animals decided to bother my drive, and there were very few crazy-bad drivers around to deal with.
I enjoy being home, even if there is no airconditioning. We're enjoying rather warm weather right now- my car said 35 when we got in it earlier (95 F, plus add some for humidity!) It's great to be home, but it feels really silly to be unpacking those boxes that I just filled yesterday. It shall be interesting, trying to find spots for everything, and figuring out why I've kept some of the things I have. Also fun, finding stuff that is hidden in a box somewhere.
I was happily greeted by my parents, Bec and Melissa. They are a great bunch, mom took Finnegan in and got him settled back in his bowl- after he attempted a Nemo stunt of jumping in the sink, Melissa, Bec and dad had a good continuous line of grabbing stuff as I pulled it out of the semi-booby-trapped car and handed it over. Dad had to complain about my packing job, at least 3 times and asked if I wanted lessons in packing a car. I'd just like to say- all the stuff I needed to pack fit, and nothing shifted while I was driving. Aren't those the main things??? Then we relaxed watching the end of Ella Enchanted- a kiddy movie, yes, but still fun and good.
I think I shall get going. I'll try to keep answering/updating regularly. Please- comment! It's not hard!!! Please notice- there are new links to the side. Enjoy!
Question of the day: What's the worst/craziest thing you've lost/misplaced during a move? How long did it take you to find it?
