HAPPY HOMEMAKER & MENU PLAN MONDAY

It’s FINALLY going to happen. The MOVE is on! Our only concern now is weather along the way.  Next week I’ll be posting from the road and that should be some task – LOL just never sure about internet signals. For once I have also pared down to the bare minimum going in our truck.  Hubby would tell you that’s a first, but he’d be wrong LOL.

The church pew will be going in the BIG truck and the few things (pet food, coffee pot for the much needed coffee the week before the BIG trucks get there, cleaning and painting supplies, sheets and towels…) are behind it as well as our actual clothes are all that will go in our truck.

WEATHER OUTSIDE
FINALLY cooler and wet weather is expected this week.  Help me pray that Wednesday is sunny though.  I HATE loading moving trucks in the rain!!  We leave on Thursday first AM and then will load at our second location Saturday.  We are really looking forward to finally being under a single roof after all these years of traveling and taking care of others.

We have a wonderful friend that will be helping us here since the load is so much smaller, but we did hire people at the next stop, the BIG stop and then hired more people at the end to unload.  It was money NOT in the budget, but we know it will be money WELL spent saving our backs!

TO DO FOR THE WEEK

  • Pack the moving truck at this location.
  • Last minute laundry.
  • Pack our truck with the things going with us.
  • CLEAN!!!

CURRENTLY READING

TELEVISION / DVR
Clean up the DVR and then whatever we can catch at night on the road.

CRAFTS & PROJECTS/HOUSE PROJECTS
BE PREPARED for this section to be full very soon after we get there and evaluate the situation.  I haven’t been there in over 3 years and my adventurous hubby hasn’t ever been there so we know we are in for a few surprises on this old place.  I LOVE that hubby is so willing to move cross country to take on a HUGE project sight unseen based on my memories.

ON MY MIND 
Update from #UCCStrong – Justin Troxel along with Steel Outlet and some local businesses who donated supplies and tons of volunteers have continue to make amazing things happen. I know when I bought my sign it was still wet – they CAN NOT/COULD NOT make the signs fast enough.

It all started when ONE man had an idea and wanted to make 50 signs to sell and raise $500 to donate to the relief fund.  It is so beautiful when an idea blossoms and becomes a catalyst for healing also. With the help of his employer and the community to date they have made over 8,000 signs and donated over 102,000.00 dollars to the relief fund.

The college bookstore will be selling the key chains, stickers and small items and they are lining up a few other businesses to keep selling signs.
Our sign along with being still wet had a small imperfection under the heart and I was going to just paint it green, but my macho (sensitive) hubby suggested I turn it into a teardrop instead and make it a crying heart.  It is now dry and all packed for the move.

THINGS THAT ARE MAKING ME HAPPY

  • That the next time I post I will be on the road to our new home.
  • That Fall is really here!
