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.”
“…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.
And my bigger side: :)
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:
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…
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:
As do boxes from Whole Foods salad bar (probably the only veggies I ate for a few days):
I’ve been rocking the Vegan Overnight Oats like nobody’s business! Easiest breakfast/snack food ever.
Amy’s veggie burgers:
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!
I adore this President’s Choice Power Fruit Blend in smoothies. There are so many sweet cherries in it!
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…
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.
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!
