Moving Day

Darren and I were married on Saturday and left on Wednesday. It took five hours total to box up all of our things, load up the UHaul and completely rid my room of all Laura-ness.

Yep, that’s right. My much loved room is now stripped of carpet, furniture, and wall paper. Pretty amazing when you think about it. Sort of sad too.

For all I know, the room is now full of my dad’s things. I imagine it now containing his computer, drafting table and plotter. He’ll be in there with clients soon. It’s his new office.

Oh well. It’s good to use the space. Now I’m looking forward to meeting my new house and putting my furniture in it.

The travelling has been ok. Nothing too eventful. Darren says that we’ll be in New York by next Friday. Currently we’re visiting his family in ND.

    Five hours is pretty good considering that you guys were packing up your large dresser and double-sized futon bed. Just as we predicted the carpet was gone right away and two days after your departure hardwood flooring was entirely installed. Even though Dad now has his huge desk, plotter and computer in there, the room still echos. The room has the fresh smell of paint to it too. Sometimes we are surprised for a moment when we look in and don’t see all of your things in there.
    I am sure that you will like your new house. Once you have set up shop please do send us a picture. :) Michael will most likely post a picture of what was your room shortly.

    Thanks so much for posting, Laura! I’m glad to hear your travels have gone well and safely thus far! I most certainly echo what Sarah said…….you will have to post pictures of your new home once you make it yours. :)

    Welcome to your new home, Sweetie! May the Lord bless you and Darren in your life together there! Is there a good place to go out for coffee in Otega? Tell Darren congrats on successfully and safely making that long drive. ~with love from Mom
