I have been moving since last Friday.  I won’t be done until this coming Monday.   I never have had a move like this & of course it’s all because of the COVID-19 virus.  The movers I hired called me on Saturday & told me that they would be unable to move me because of the ban on non-essential businesses.  My son & I moved most of my things in his Pontiac Vibe … I own around 1000 books (maybe more) in 40 milk crates & various other boxes, as well as boxes filled with my diaries, poetry, & other writing.  I have a bad back; I hired movers for a reason.  However, we got most of it done.  There’s still a few things left at the old place.  & there’s the washer & dryer that needs to be moved.  I have the same landlord at the new place as the old place; he has found me a mover who will move my washer & dryer.   So hopefully, by this coming Monday, I will be completely moved in my new place & can unpack and settle in while “sheltering in place”.

The cats have been kinda freaked out but it’s not their first move, either.  They have been checking out the new kitchen cupboards before I fill them with the china.

  1. Hello SILVERAPPLEQUEEN. Ouch, sorry that is in caps , I copied it from the tag. I love both Bobby and Radar. You are so lucky they are willing to explore and come out after a traumatic move. They both are really beautiful and their coats look like you keep them combed well. Does Bobby have the same white markings in both ears?

    I am sorry to hear of your moving troubles. I am glad you have your son there to help. Wow moving all those boxes in a Vibe? I am surprised it did not take you a week alone just for that. Not knocking the vibe at all just saying that is a lot of work for a car that size. Not to mention the wear and tear on you and your son. Your back must have been really yelling at you!

    This virus is having a huge effect on every part of the economy, on everyone, yet some sectors refuse to admit it as you know. I really hope all works out for you and will keep you in my thoughts. Sorry thoughts are all I can do, prayers are another department. 😁😀😉 Hugs

  2. Hi Scottie, we moved all those boxes in ONE DAY. My son could carry two boxes at a time, he’s 27 & BUILT. One gorgeous dude, I’m so proud of him. He’s going to be moving in for a short time, his place is party central because nobody is working there & he has to be up early to go to work. He works for a landscaping company & he’s outdoors all day. He still has to wear a mask, even though he’s outdoors & not near anyone else.

    I go to a chiropractor once a week & he keeps telling me that just because I CAN lift something doesn’t mean I SHOULD lift it. But if there’s work to be done, I do it. It’s just the way I am.
