Well I officially have work days left before our big move to TN. You know? In January, I was scared & really not sure I wanted to go. But now? I am READY. We close on the new house on Friday the 23rd & the moving company is arriving on Monday May 26th. Yes, Memorial Day. They are starting to pack , said it would be 2 days to pack , one & a half to laod & then GO ! The worst part of all this is that the loading & unloading will all have to be shuttled. There is no way a semi-truck (18 wheeler) can get down my driveway in AL and the road in front of the house in TN isn't wide enough to stay parked long enough to un-load....so EVERYTHING has to be shuttled.
DH & I have been going over & over & then over again, how we'll move the animals. We never seem to discuss the same strategy twice. He wants me to borrow a cat carrier for the cat. I told him I'd put him in a clothes hamper & tape it closed just like we did 10 years ago. DH said that would not be humane. We had a long , very long discussion ragarding the differences between a cat carrier & a clothes hamper would be. I pointed out that the clothes hamper was bigger. DH stated it was a dignity thing...honestly? I NEVER , EVER thought that DH would be worried over the cat! He wasn't 10 years ago.....maybe he's become more fond of the cat? Perhaps.....There's no telling. But - bottom line? I'm NOT buying a cat carrier. He can go in the laundry hamper. I'll make it up to the cat by feeding him tuna....
I am quilting my last customer quilt this weekend. I can't take anymore until after we get moved & set up. My "customer" quilt that is on the rails this evening is from my freind & co-worker, Kyra. It is SO pretty! Pinks & browns. It's for her baby girl & she wants butterflies on it. I am using tha "Butterfly Charm" pantograph from Willow Leaf Studios ( I love thier patterns!) and I am using Perma Core Thread in a tan color called (oddly enough) "Mother Goose" It's more tan than pink, but blends really well with either.
I don't know how long the blogger lets you go without posting, so I'll TYR to post a little more often this week before the big move, but I can't tell how long it will be before I get back on. I don't know if the house has cable, DSL or dial up - that's not something I had put in my name yet. It cost $500 just to get the utilities in my name for next week!
