It’s here!!!

11 Jul

Our sea shipment of household goods arrived Monday. It was very emotionally rewarding to see our stuff after almost 10 weeks! We had no idea how comforting it would be to see our furniture, rugs, etc. But of course we are once again in chaos as we decide where to put everything. Good thing we “downsized” as much as we did.

It may not look like much, but we already know we brought too much stuff. This is the bedroom with a dresser, nightstands, boxes, and a crappy wardrobe we had removed.

The kitties were so glad to see the furniture! Libby lounged on the couch, they rolled on the carpets, and took turns, reluctantly, in the cat tower. It was clear they felt more at home — as did we — by having familiar things arrive.

Janie in the cat tower.

Tuesday we had IKEA deliver 3 new wardrobes and 3 kitchen base cabinets, all requiring assembly. Today, Wednesday, we had the wardrobes assembled by a crew and we worked on the kitchen. Almost done!

Before and after photos to follow when complete. Don’t hold your breath.

    Hi Ric & Laurel!
    So great to follow your exploits since May. You are perfect “scouts” as we prepare for the start of our trip in 2 (busy) weeks! Very exciting.

    We were very sorry to hear about your pup. Glad you have other 4-legged friends to help give comfort & affection.

    It has to feel soooooooo good to have your “stuff” around you once again. Janie’s picture says it all. Don’t forget to still be tourists and send all the news about your wonderful adventures!!

      Thanks Anita! It will take a couple of weeks to get it all done. Don’t know where I’m going to put all the pictures. Lots of stuff will be in boxes in the garage I guess!
