Moving Day

Our new house. It's an old house from 1910. It was in bad shape so we're having to have some work done before we move in.

My mom's cottage set adjacent to our house.
So it was moving day for my mom. We're moving to a property that has a main house for my family and a cute little cottage for my recently widowed mother. So we planned out our day, with my working the morning, then joining my mom at the new house after I put Chloe down for her nap and the sitter arriving to take over. But unfortunately as soon as I pulled out of my driveway I KNEW something was wrong. I got about 1/2 a block when I realized I had a flat tire, so I turned around and returned home. We called AAA and I packed OUR house while I waited the 45 minutes for the tow truck to arrive. Long story short, he couldn't change my tire, re-inflated it for me and sent me to Town Fair Tire, who couldn't fit me in until tomorrow morning. So I returned home and used my sitter for packing. I missed out on the whole moving day! :( But there's still plenty to do so I'm loading up on caffeine and heading out to my mom's new pad to help her settle in for the night. Lucky for us a tornado just missed us. Same town, different area. Phew!


  1. I just heard about that tornado a little while ago and thought of you!! Scary!! I know I have seen pics of your "new" place...maybe on Facebook? I remember thinking what a cool place it was. Will it have a guestroom for Ella and me to stay in???? Sorry about the flat tire. I guess you meant to pack instead. Not very often I hear someone say "I missed out on the whole moving day" Most people avoid them like the plague.

  2. That is such a great house! I sometimes wish we didn't live here in LA and could have a larger piece of land with room for a grandma to live there too! I hope the fixing up goes smoothly and that the packing does too! I don't envy you there! :-)
