Moved but not moved.

Tom and I spent last weekend getting settled into the San Antonio house. The movers were really quick and we were unloaded by 2pm on Friday. It went really smooth and had no incidents on the way. That was unusual for us these days.

Now the focus will be on selling the Katy house. Not much furniture is left in the house. We are selling the king sized medical bed because it is just too much. All that is left in the house is the office furniture and the bed.  We have boxes to move but are not going to worry about it much. We will take boxes while we go back and forth and getting rid of whatever we are not going to move. It has been hard deciding what to keep and what to dispose of.

While I was waiting for the movers to arrive in San Antonio I got a call from one of the contract companies I am registered with. They had a long term (6-8 week project) they offered me. I was really happy to get the offer. I start on Monday, March 15. Surprisingly enough, the job is in Houston. I will be living in an extended stay hotel in north Houston. It is a good contract and will take me to around the first of June. Tom's contract with Dresser will be about the same time so we will be busy. Our new grandbaby will be here by the middle of May. Mother and baby are doing great.

I am hoping we will be able to take a trip this summer. Something to look forward to.

Till next time, God Bless and Keep You.

It is finally happening!

The San Antonio house is ready and tomorrow is moving day. Tom and I have been packing, cleaning and throwing away. Three sacks and one box to Goodwill today opened up a spot for more boxes. The plan is rather complicated.

Step 1: Move the furniture and most of the other 'stuff' to SAT. We are leaving Tom a bed, his office and a couple of dishes. He is staying in Katy till the house is sold because he is working here and has to go to the office a couple of days a week.

Step 2: I will move to SAT and get the house set up and ready to live in. It really looks great with the new paint and new carpet. There will still be a lot of 'other stuff' left in Katy. I will be going back and forth to get the rest of the house emptied and cleared out.

Step 3: Sell the Katy house so Tom will be able to move to SAT with me.

I am really happy to get this rolling finally. Kimberly's baby shower is March 20th in SAT and I hope to have the house ready. BTW I know the San Antonio house is a mobile  home, but I just always call it the house. When I call it the mobile, I usually call it the RV. Three residences are just too many :)

Tom's current contract runs through the end of April. I am crossing my fingers that we may be able to take a long RV trip after the new grandbaby gets here.

The movers will be here at 8:00am and I still have a couple of things to get together.  Pray for our successful transfer. God is Good.

God Bless and Keep You.
