We Interupt this Weekend for a...

...Move! This weekend was Heather's big move ~ her first real apartment (she doesn't count dorm rooms at college). Our day started early at Ikea. You know it's early when the parking lot at Ikea is empty. We grabbed some breakfast, ordered a bed frame to be delivered, and hit the road (well, after we meandered the show room and shopped a little).

Someone told Heather that rain on her moving day was good luck. Heather should go out quickly and buy some lottery tickets ~ we got rain, cold rain, the whole weekend.

But at least it wasn't hot. The apartment is on the top floor and we got well acquainted with these, but the cool day made it not so bad. (I remember a super hot 4th floor dorm move Heather and I did all by ourselves a few years back that just about did me in).

Bobby was a willing truck driver, so after his classes ended He, Heather & I got most things moved in the first day. Then Bob got off work, I went to work, and he took over another truck load.

After doing this many times, Heather (and Maddie her cat) are all moved in. Now I'm sitting here (not as stiff as I thought I'd be by the way) getting used to being able to open the door without worrying about the cat running out, making my own tea, and wondering who I'll watch "The Big Bang Theory" and eat popcorn with tonight. I guess I'll have to adjust.

Enjoy the day!

I have yet to visit an IKEA store. I've heard they are huge, and be prepared to do a lot of walking. Good Luck to Heather on her new adventure, and to you to. Maybe you need a kitty of your own. :0)
