We're moved...

Not unpacked, but everything is here. I stayed home sick on Thursday and started moving things myself on Friday. Kris got here about dinnertime and we worked several hours Friday night.  I was so sore that I had a hard time sleeping Friday night but knew that we'd have tons to do over the weekend.

We were definitely working at a disadvantage. It was wicked cold (each forecast dropped the "high" for the day by about five degrees) and the wind was bitter, bitter cold. None of us felt good (I've been sick for nearly a week) and had a couple people have to cancel because they didn't feel good. That left the heavy work for Rex and Keith (thank God they came and worked while they were sick; Keith missed two days of work last week) and the smaller things for Kris, Lindsay (Keith's girlfriend), and me. We made multiple trips with my van. Rex and Keith made multiple trips with Rex's truck and a trailer that he borrowed from one of his co-workers.

We got everything moved from the old place to the new place by 3:00 PM and rested for a while before going to dinner (Montana Mike's Steakhouse - yummy!). I rested a bit better Saturday night but had to take a couple of doses of cold/sinus medicine and night-time pain relievers. I didn't overdose, but when they wore off I was back up to take more.

I took today off, too and I'm so glad that I did. I still fee like crap and looking around what still needs to be done.

blech... blech... blech...

I'm resting now so I feel up to going to work tomorrow. Can't really afford to miss any more time right now.

We ended up getting snow overnight but it's supposed to warm back up this week. Wouldn't ya know... move the cold weekend and rest the warm weekend.

Still snowing here. I know you are so glad the actual move is over. Rest now, it will be there when you are back up to speed.

I was thinking about you today and wondered how the move went. I'm so sorry you aren't feeling well but at least you're in the new place so no rush in unpacking. Take care of yourself. Feel better and lots of hugs!

I'm glad you are all moved IN, but I know how hard it is when you are surrounded by stuff that needs unpacking. Maybe work won't be too taxing--I hope not.

Wishing you far better times ahead!

At least you are in. The unpacking can be done more gradually. Take care of yourself so you dont fall in a big heap
Hugs for you

Just reading that post made me tired. Remember that you don't have to unpack all at once, take your time and rest too.

No surprise you're sick! Take it easy--the stress doesn't help!

Glad to hear that you are moved--even though it was most unpleasant! Hope you feel better soon! I am sure the stress of the move is not helping, but that nice new HUGE kitchen will just HAVE to help! :)

Happy Valentine's Day!
