All of a sudden we are packing again! We closed on our new home and went from thinking we’d be moving the end of May to moving May 2n! The previous owners were going to rent back the house for a month but they found their next home and moved one day after the closing only renting back for two days not a month. To top it off we found a wonderful mover who could fit us into his schedule and move us May 2, so we’re packing again.
Fortunately we only have to pack up our small one bedroom apartment, so I think it is doable. The houseplants are back in their plastic container ready to go in the car. We are eating up everything left in the fridge and the canned food we are moving this time.
When you make a cross country move it is all based on weight. As a result we didn’t move any canned goods with the exception of a few things such as my homemade vanilla.
This move will only be less than 200 miles so we were given a flat rate for the move which included packing the trucks, driving them to our new home and unpacking the trucks. Nothing needed to be packed because the majority of our belongings are still in boxes from the original move!
We are really looking forward to unpacking all of our boxes and settling into our new home.
I have met the owners of a local CSA, which we have signed up for. I may try to join the community garden this year, or I may just concentrate on putting in a few raised beds in our small backyard.
We won’t have a large lot to have a massive garden, but we will continue to grow what we can and preserve the harvest. Follow the journey on Instagram, I will do my best to share photos over the next week of craziness. In the meantime I’m packing again!
