Always Check The Driveway

96 comments

After Eric and I returned the moving truck on Sunday afternoon, we came back to the new place and I started unpacking while he set up the office.

Suddenly, Eric came into the room looking panicked.

“Ange, I think I forgot something at the old house.”

“Really…what?”

“…I forgot your COMPUTER on the driveway!!!!”

You know, I always thought we’d forget a few things when moving…maybe a tarnished earring in the bathroom drawer, a dusty sock under the dryer, or a garden tool in the garage. Somehow, we managed to forget one of the most valuable things in the house- the machine that holds my cookbook recipes and photography. Go figure. And on the driveway of all places…lol.

It had now been about 4 hours since we left the house…and the computer sitting on the driveway. We called our friend Mary who lives nearby and she checked to see if the computer was still there. Thank goodness it was! Two hours later, we returned with my computer in hand and I figured this was a good time to back my computer up which is something I hadn’t done for a couple months. You can never be too sure with computers, especially during a move when things can get banged up…or forgotten on driveways.

Life motto: ALWAYS CHECK THE DRIVEWAY FOR THE COMPUTER.

Aside from that excitement, things have been going smoothly!

I managed to unpack our clothing:

We have a small walk through closet adjoining our bedroom and bathroom.

Eric’s side:

And my bigger side: :)

IMG_2719

I’m like a human colour wheel or something.

We’re storing our underwear, socks, PJ’s, etc in the tall dresser in the bedroom. I’m also hoping to get some kind of shelf unit for the bottom of the closet for a bit more storage for odds and ends.

As for my eats, we’ll they’ve been all over the place since we started moving! Here are a few things I managed to snap a picture of…

Costco crackers and sunflower seed butter:

IMG_2705

Not the healthiest choice, but handfuls of chocolate chips are a great blood sugar boost when moving boxes all day long. and Eric wondered where my super human strength came from…

IMG_2706

dried cherries:

IMG_2708

Chocolate and cherries…it’s practically trail mix, right?

lots of beer. Not good for staying hydrated…

Random bowls of banana, almond milk, sunflower seed butter, and hemp seeds also do the trick:

IMG_2722

As do boxes from Whole Foods salad bar (probably the only veggies I ate for a few days):

IMG_2654

I’ve been rocking the Vegan Overnight Oats like nobody’s business! Easiest breakfast/snack food ever.

IMG_8213

Amy’s veggie burgers:

IMG_8243

and this delicious creation I came up with the other night! I added about 1/2 cup of almond milk, 3/4 cup frozen mixed berries, and 1/3 scoop Vega Chocolate protein powder into the blender. The result was almost like a berry sorbet…and made the perfect dessert!

IMG_8249

I adore this President’s Choice Power Fruit Blend in smoothies. There are so many sweet cherries in it!

IMG_8250

As for Sketchie, he’s not sure what to think of all of this!! He was on edge all day Sunday as he checked out every inch of the place.

Leave it to Sketchie to find this random hole in the kitchen cabinet…

IMG_8241

I was in the kitchen and noticed him at my feet with HALF his body in the hole! I grabbed him out just in time! Gave me a real scare. I moved a big block to cover the hole so he can’t climb in…so hopefully that works. I can only imagine having to call the fire department for that one…umm my cat is stuck under my kitchen cabinet…haaaalp.

IMG_8234

Yesterday, he did much better and got caught up on some major shut eye while I worked. I’m just trying to give him extra attention and affection while he makes this new transition. Moves are hard on people, but they may be even harder on the fur balls!

Woah, you have great karma! Forgetting your computer in the driveway is kind of the blogger equivalent of forgetting you put your coffee cup on top of the car so you could open the door, and then driving away only to have it slosh all the way down your rear window…

So glad it was waiting for you! Sheesh.

Oh my gosh, that’s crazy-of all things, the computer! I am so happy it was still there when you got back…I’m sure this will be something you guys forever remember!! Happy unpacking! :) I’ll be joining in on the fun in a couple weeks-we are headed out this week to find a new place!

My face went white when I read that about your computer! You’re so lucky that it was still there! (Or should I say HE was! HA!) What a random hole! Kitties find everything so it was good you were alerted to this cubby now instead of later when chaos could ensue!

Isn’t it ironic how we can try so hard to remember everything, yet despite this, we sometimes forget the most important thing(s)? So glad your computer is safe and sound.

I’m so glad I’m not the only one who loves to eat bananas this way. I think it’s such a comfort food–sliced bananas, milk, some raisins or other chewy something, and a few chopped or sliced nuts. Your cat is gorgeous. I (and my kids more so) hope to have a kitty one day…

(and I love all the colors in your closet. says loads about your personality :)).

I hate the feeling when you know you have left something behind. I once was doing laundry at a laundry mat and left al my bras hanging to dry on the basket. ( ALL of my bras) and I only like Victoria Secrets so they are not the cheapest bras. I didn’t realize it until a few hours later, by the time I went back they were gone. Someone had actually stolen my bras! My story did not have such a happy ending. But I moved on, went to the store bought a few to tie me over and now my collection is growing again. :)

My cat will always get in the most awkward/dangerous nooks and crannies. He once got himself lost behind a drawer of my sister’s dresser. Most stressful 30 minutes of my life, but he finally got out of there in one piece. Silly cats, they just love to frighten us!

At my last apartment, my roommate called me to tell me she couldn’t find my cat. We had a hole under our cabinet, too, next to the stove, and she was the only animal we had that could fit in there. Scared me to death!

Reply

32 Natalie March 20, 2012

We had a kitten that did that – there was a space under the cabinets that we didn’t know about until she got her head stuck… for 45 minutes. I was dancing around freaking out and the kitten was screaming and the other cat watching while my boyfriend performed the resuce mission. What killed me is she was back there the next day looking at the space! I was so afraid she would suffocate! She was really stuck.

Love the looks of your new place.

We moved this past year as well, for the same reason you did, my husband had been driving 3-4 hours every day for almost 3 years an we finally said “enough of this”. We took possesion of our new house the first of June. We did not however, sell our old house. My daughter finished out her school year and I was still working in our old town for the entire summer. So we were sort of living in two places until Septmber when I officaily left my job and our daughter began the new school year here in our new town.

During the summer, she spent a week in july and a week in august with daddy at the “new home” and the cat accompanied her for both weeks. So when we did our final transition, the cat had already been here a couple of times, which I thought would make it easier on him. Cats are funny creatures though and he was unsettled for a couple of weeks before he began to seem like his regular old self again. He seems to love the place now as much as we do though!

Hope you all feel comfortable and ‘at home’ soon!

Nothing like moving to throw eats and snacks for a huge loop…like, oh, that random bag of this or that that I’ve had for a year and didn’t touch, sure, I’ll eat that now. With this other food that’s sort of random, too, but they kind of go together. Chocolate and cranberries, perfect!

Your computer. OMG. You and computers DON’T have good luck…the smashed laptop screen, thanks to the airlines from a few months back. Glad your desktop was safe!

My dad is getting remarried very soon. They’ve bought a new house that they’ll move into soon as well. The scary part is they will have three cats and three dogs to move as well. I’m not so sure it’s going to be easy to get them all to get along and enjoy a new house. Aaaah! Love new spaces though. I’m so excited you get to live in a town you love!

In our last apartment our sneaky cat opened the bathroom cupboards under the sink, finding a small hole that led from our apartment to the neighbors. Imagine our neighbors surprise when he got out of the shower that morning only to find a strange cat on his counter! Long story short, he ended up setting our cat free outside but we tracked him down eventually thank goodness!

I thought I remembered bringing them out to my car in a couple reusable bags and I was so panicked that I left them on the ground in my parking lot. I was a huge ball of worried all the way back thinking that I had either run over them by mistake or someone had stolen them. They ended up being still in my front hall!

Close call though, computer on the driveway is very scary. What a beautiful cat you have! Enjoy your new home.

It’s good that your computer was still there but even if it weren’t, thing could be worse. When I read the title, the first thing that came to my mind was an ad from a New Zealander radio station about driveway accidents. “Door locked – check, keys – check… kid playing on the driveway – didn’t check.” So it appears that driveways need much more attention than we think.

I’m sure it was more than a little hard to let go of your peaceful country house, but I’m secretly really happy that you and Eric will be able to spend more time together now (and your new place looks like it gets lots of gorgeous light!)

LOL – I’ve totally done the laptop in the driveway thing. Well, not that *exact* thing, but pretty darned close! Thank goodness it didn’t get stollen or rained on or anything. That reminds me… I need to back up my harddrive, too!

Looks like the house is coming together really nicely – you’ve gotten so much done already! And it’s good to see that Sketchie is settling in… I’ve heard so many horror stories of cats (and sometimes dogs) that just flip out over a move.

Not the green and white pillows! Didn’t you just get those when you did the living room make over at the old house?

Also, have you done a recipe with adding protein powder to the overnight oats? Just wondering how that might taste.

Now craving over-night oats. Dang, I hate that I have to wait to eat them though ;)

When we moved from our loft in SF to a tiny rental in Marin, I left my diamond necklace in the back of a shoe storage in my old closet! I contacted the new owner and had him fish back in there for it and meet me. He said he’d never have found it it was so far back! Congrats on your move, and as an aside, I love the pics of Sketchie — I lost my cat to old age about 6 mos ago, and this makes me want a Bengal!

HAHAHHAHA wonderful life motto. At least you didn’t leave it on top of the car and drive away like that!
