Please Stand By

Just checking in.  We're in the middle of our move, and we got the internet up and running last night.  However, we still have a lot of treks to make between the two houses not to mention deep cleaning 1500 feet of house.

And work starts up again a week from tomorrow.  So I have a lot of prep work to do there, too.

So here's the deal with the new house: it's growing on me.

For instance, last night the temperature dipped under 50 degrees.  In the old house, this would equate to indoor temperatures of 52-55.  Here?  67.  Yesterday afternoon it was actually cooler inside than out - an unheard of event at the other house.  This is not an insignificant fact given summer temperatures here routinely rise above 95 and often go over 100.

The kid is loving the freedom to run around both the much safer house and the gated front deck.  I'm loving not having to stay within arm's reach every moment of every day.  PLUS it came pre-baby-proofed, with the go-ahead to install more drawer and cabinet stoppers if need be.

We get PBS and network television courtesy of the rear house's cable connection.  I can get all the Huell Howser I can stand!

So yay!

We have most of our kitchen and master bedroom moved, but it doesn't seem to have made much of a dent in the other house.  So we have our work cut out for us.  Posting will be sporadic for a while, but I hope that unlike this blog's previous incarnation "sporadic" will mean just that, rather than "nonexistent."
