Smooth Move

We are now the proud residents and mortgage holders of a home in Strathroy. The big move happened today with very little incident.

It's a good thing first impressions are often wrong because our movers were a half hour late (somewhat understandable, given the fog this morning), but came inadequately equipped to pack our kitchen. We scrounged up some extra boxes and newspapers for wrapping. Despite our initial reservations, the crew proved to be hardworking, professional, courteous and efficient.

Thanks to Shelley's remarkable organizational ability, the loading aspect of the move was well-ahead of schedule. We hit the road for "Strath Vegas" and undid all that was done this morning. Furniture and boxes gathered in their appointed rooms, ready for their re-assembly and unveiling.

The major blip was the bulkiness of the entertainment unit which proved too cumbersome to negotiate the stairs to the basement of the new home. So it sits in the living room, awaiting its component parts to be installed and plugged in. It's not quite the home plan that I had in mind, but the kids will have free reign in the basement for their toys.

I know it's been a while since you've seen a new post and perhaps I'll share what I can remember of the past week-and-a-half. But not now, it's been a long day and I need to be fresh for tomorrow's cleaning of the manse and more unpacking.
