It’s better to light a candle than to curse the darkness. 
— Chinese proverb

I wish I had a match.

Alas, I have found a house and if nothing goes wrong, I’ll be moving into it the day I move out of my current home. Unfortunately, I’m uncertain as to how I’m going to move there.

So far there is me and one other person to load all my stuff onto my horse trailer and a rented moving van on Thursday evening. I’ll be loading whatever I can lift by myself Thursday during the day. That is if I manage to pack all this stuff up.

I’ll need to be out of the current home Friday morning but it appears I can’t move into the new house until Friday evening. Where does a girl go in between with a truck, horse trailer, car, and moving van? And how does she move in with just her and one other person in the evening? It’s a mystery.

Help may still appear but the timing of the closings and moving is very inconvenient for any likely heroes or heroines. And because I can’t seem to pin down the sellers as to exact times yet, I don’t have enough information to look into hiring help. Maybe it will become clearer as the moving date looms closer, but right now, it seems impossible to get everything done in time.

So rather than have you listen to me whimper and whine for the next three and a half weeks, because believe you me, there will be a lot of that, I’m going to leave the blog world until I’m done packing, moving and have sufficiently recuperated.

Well, I may post something around July 9th because that’s when Murphy is supposed to go to his new home and when I’ll be moving Luke to a boarding facility so I may have some photos of Luke hopefully settling in. I probably will not take photos of Murphy leaving as that’s not what I want to remember.

Hope you have a happy and safe 4th of July and are enjoying your summer!

  1. Good luck with the moving. And sorry about having to let Murphy go.

    If you need help moving, ask around at work if anyone has any teenaged sons who would like to make $50. My sons are always looking for a way to make a buck or two… if you can find one, I would bet they would have a buddy to engage, too.

    Looking forward to hearing about your new place.

  2. Far Side – I’ll need some luck. Thanks.

    Roxanne – I wish you lived closer too but more for hanging out purposes than help moving.

    Tammy – I have a cousin who is working on her kids to help me out. She’s also going to ask for a vacation day even though she’s in a new job and doesn’t have vacation. I told her not to do that but she feels bad having me do so much by myself. She thinks I need more morale support and I guess I do, just don’t want it to cost her money. It’d be better if I spent the money on movers, which i will if I can ever find out a set time to actually move.

  3. I am convinced it will all fall into place for you sweetie. I’m excited you found a place. I’m sick and have been battlin’ the stinkin’ shingles for over two months so I have missed out on much. I just wanted to check in on some of my beautiful blogsisters. I think it’s wise for you to take a break during the move. Everyone needs a break now and again.

    After out Fourth bash Hubby has ordered me to do nothing until I heal up but I’ve missed ya’ll so much I just had to sneak some blogtime.

    God bless your move and may you have sufficient helpers!!!

  4. Nezzy – I was wondering how your shingles recovery was going. Glad to hear from you! I’ve hit another bump with the sellers but I figure it will work out somehow. All the other bumps have.
