Just a very very quick post to let y’all know that we are in the new house, the move went very well, and after waking me every 15 minutes (KHAL)(JAKE) the first night, the cats adjusted quickly and are staking out their new favorite spots. We’ve allowed them on the back porch a few times, which Archie loved and the rest of them were a little wary about. We haven’t let them into the back yard because the cat fence hasn’t been installed (by Fred) yet. And we want them to get to know this house as home before we allow them into the back yard anyway. I imagine it’ll be 2 – 3 weeks before they can venture into the back yard.

This move is kicking my butt – I’m getting too old for this, I swear. And I clearly did not appreciate all those built-ins at the last house nearly enough, because I keep wondering HOW we have so much STUFF and WHERE we’re gonna put it. (Fortunately, there’s a large storage shed in the side yard, so that helps.)

The foster room currently looks like this, and there are about 15 – 20 more boxes of kitten room stuff in the garage that needs to be brought upstairs.

I have a ton of errands to run today, and then will start working on the kitten room. (The rest of the house is not 100% sorted, but it’s starting to reach livable status.)

Oh, and 52 hours after we listed the house we moved out of, we accepted an offer. Fingers crossed that all goes smoothly with that!

Charlie’s not sure about this carpet stuff (there’s carpet in the master bedroom and office, which will be replaced once we’ve closed on the other house. We had the carpet in the upstairs replaced – they did it the day before we moved – and absolutely love it.)

Archie’s got a hair-trigger temper, but this move has not fazed him one tiny bit.

I don’t expect I’ll be posting on the blog again this week, but will definitely be back on schedule to start posting as usual beginning next Monday. Keep your fingers crossed that I get the rest of this house unpacked in a timely manner so I can relax a little!
