What to Do? What to Do?

I’m wondering what I should do with my three remaining days of living in the Puget Sound area of Washington State. We recorded yesterday and received our keys at 6pm. It was getting dark when we headed over to take a quick walk-thru to drop off a small load of stuff. We (myself, son, DIL and grandgirlie). Dear remained on the west side of the mountains with responsibilities to wrap up.

This is our new driveway and I went to the street to take photos of the drive for our container delivery people. Addy spotted me and made a run for it to join me. I had to catch her at full speed before she toppled over! This was yesterday.

Today I drove the six hours from Colville to Lynnwood with my companion on CD being Detective Chief Inspector Vera Stanhope. Now I’m deciding what I want to do on this side of the mountains before we leave to our new home on Sunday. We are moving from a major population area of close to 4 million to a community of about 5,000.

Before I left on Dear’s birthday to head to Colville to deliver paperwork and a check to close on our new home we celebrated Dear’s Medicare birthday with our kids on the western side of the mountains.

  1. Look how grown-up Addy is already! Isn’t it sweet to have a little one running after you? I hope your move goes well and you find good community in your smaller town.

  2. Such a transsition stage, if there ever was one! As daunting as setting up may be, I have to remember what you have all accomplished already! A smaller community will be a welcome change! And you know the way to civilization! =)

  3. Looking forward to many happy driveway moments with frolicking children and grandchild(ren?)
    I love everything I see about your new location! Bet the people will be wonderful too.
    I watch the series Vera based on the books on the Acorn network. Love her! Great show.

    We’ll celebrate my Hubby’s Medicare b-day Nov. 2nd, then he’ll get s new hip on the 9th. Hip hip hurrah!

  4. Wow, you are going to a very quiet and peaceful new area to live. Enjoy. I look forward to seeing ‘lots’ of pictures. Your grandlittle is adorable and Happy Birthday to your DH.

  5. Now you can begin to settle in your new house.
    The first thing I do when moving is set up and make the bed so at the end of the day you can fall into it.

  6. Congratulations on your new home! We’re almost neighbors! We made this move (from Arlington to NE WA state 5 years ago, this past August).. It was just the two of us who packed and loaded our pods. Hubby and I both lost over 10 pounds each during the move.. We had 21 days to vacate our home (we were under contract within 24 hours of listing). 5 years later, we still have boxes we haven’t gone through, sitting in the garage…
    Hope you’re able to relax soon! Now you can start to explore the West Kootenay area of SE British Columbia!
