The Movers Cometh

Sunday morning we went to church at Bethany Presbyterian Church whose pastor is Sarah Wiles, @sarahwinsett, an old friend from Twitter. It’s a nice little church with a lot of energy and seems to be outwardly focused. It’s very different from Preston Hollow, but still is identifiable as Presbyterian – not that I’m looking to recreate PHPC here. Several of the members invited us to go to lunch with them and we had an enjoyable time at BJ’s. The rest of the day was spent resting up for the arrival of our furniture on Monday morning.
The truck arrived right on time at 9:00 o’clock. And three and a half hours later we were covered up with boxes and furniture.




I was able to get the bedroom cleared out enough to be able to find the beds.



My dresser sans mirror is in the entry hall because that’s the only wall long enough for it.



Big Al is working like a Trojan to get the kitchen unpacked so we can at least eat breakfast and supper.


We ordered Papa John’s for supper, so we’re settling in.


There’s not enough room to cuss a cat without getting fur in your mouth, but it should be better once we get all the boxes unpacked.
This may be the last post for a while, since all our waking hours are going to be devoted to finding the floor.



  1. Well, as the kids would say, “OMG!!!!” Hercules cleaning out the Augean stables comes to mind… Just don’t swallow too much cat fur, and know that your faithful readers are eagerly awaiting the next installment. Love, Anne


  2. Hi, love! You have all the sympathy I can send….been there, done that! I won’t bore you with my ‘even-steven’ pictures…but they exist! I loved your comment particularly about cat fur in your mouth, and finding the floor! Al is a jewel….though I must admit, David did a lot when we settled in here, as well. We’d team up and I would place items…being hardnosed about where I wanted stuff, that was the best way for us….
    Hang in there, and we’ll look forward to some fun postings about exploring your new territory once the home front is in order!
    Don’t work too hard now…save some strength for play-time!
    Loving you….Ann … & the Crooked creek gang.


    • Thanks for the encouraging words. The worst part is we packed for a 2-bedroom, 1400 sq ft duplex and are toughing it out in a 1-bedroom 600 sq ft apartment until somebody dies or wigs out. I’ve gotten real interested in the other residents’ health, particularly if they have a big 2-bedroom unit with a view of the mountains. Wicked!
