Wow, we had a very busy weekend! As you all know, we are moving into a new house we had built!! Our move in date is March 22nd, so we are heavy into the packing stage now. We sold some furniture this weekend (gotta love Craigslist) and they came and picked that all up this weekend. My husband also sold his beloved Mustang, since we haven’t really used it in a long time and it was just sitting in the garage collecting dust. It was hard seeing the girl go, but it’s better the car be used than sit taking up space in the garage.
After all the commotion of the furniture and car being hauled away Saturday (Otis LOVED greeting everyone) we went out to lunch and then went by the new house to check things out and decide where things are going to go. When we got home we all got busy with our own packing. Our son was in his room packing up his own things (he did a very good job!) and hubby and I each did our own thing.
Saturday night we went to a friend’s birthday party and they have dogs, too, so we brought Otis….and I did NOT take ONE photo at the party!! Shame on me!! We left early since I was falling asleep standing up. The day had been so exhausting with packing and running errands, but it was nice to get out to see friends for a little while.
Sunday morning was lazy. I took Otis for a nice walk, since the weather was finally nice. Hubby suggested going out to breakfast (like I’d say no to that?!). So, poor Otis was left alone for a little while. I actually do not think he minded being left home. He played hard with the dogs the night before, so was actually wanting to just sleep. We went to Lowe’s and Home Depot then picked up our son from his grandmother and spent the rest of the afternoon doing more cleaning. I was up in our room washing blinds and cleaning out the closet, packing shoes and throwing out crap I do not want to cart to the new house. That’s the one good thing about moving – getting rid of CRAP you forgot you had that you’ll never use! Otis watched me yard stuff out and throw stuff in boxes. He didn’t seem too interested in helping, but he did enjoy the empty boxes! Hubby was downstairs cleaning out old papers..I could hear that shredder screaming!
The afternoon flew by and we all needed a break! We went to our friends house and had a little visit then went to grab a bite to eat (we had a gift card for Baja fresh ha!) When we got home, we all did absolutely nothing but lounge around and relax! Until next time….
