I was too busy to take pictures

Good grief, this has been the most tiring, stressful time I've had in ages.  No wonder I haven't moved too often in my life! 

Perhaps it's age-related, but with all different cabinets and cabinet arrangements, I spend a great deal of time looking for ingredients I need to cook a meal.  "Now where did I put that?"  It's a question I ask myself constantly, and not only in the kitchen.

There are things I distinctly remember bringing from the other house, but I can't find them now.  Our cell phone chargers, for instance.  And one crisper drawer to my refrigerator.  How do you lose something like that?  Cliff finally found it on the wagon where we're putting stuff we're throwing away.  Huh?

For about twenty minutes, I couldn't find Cliff's meds.  It was time to fill his week-long pill-holder thingies, and for the life of me I didn't know where I put them.  That could have gotten scary, but I found them in the first place I'd looked.  I had simply missed seeing them.

The trailer house (that is my preferred term for my home) will eventually have a driveway and sidewalks and a porch and a deck.  But right now, we have pasture and mud; it rains every day.  So we really have no choice but to take our shoes off every time we come inside.

This is the first time I have had a chance to really sit down and make a blog entry, and it's just a drive-by.  I hope everyone is having a lovely Memorial Day.

We are finallly getting new carpet. The couch is in the kitchen. The LaZBoy is on the deck - there is an area circumventing the kitchen about 6" to get to the fridge, sink,etc, so I am qualified to say I know EXACTLY how you feel. However, we are stupidly having company on Thursday (4 guests total) to stay the weekend so I have you on that one.

When we moved here I got in front of the sink and put things in the same drawers in comparison to where we lived before so that made it a tad easier. I don't envy you a bit on finding things. I hope you get organized soon so you can enjoy your new home. LOL on the fridge drawer. Helen

I hate moving. Period. Losing things is just one of the many reasons why.  I can never find things after I put them away, and end up doing the same thing as you.  Wandering around talking to myself, saying, "Now where the hell did I put that?"  Yeah.. I say hell.  lol

Can't wait to see pictures!

It will work out in time - I moved less than two years ago. I have a poor memory. I think it helped me that I did all the packing and moving myself - since no one else touched anything except the heavy furniture, I had a fairly decent chance of finding things. You will find things in time, lol! I am still rearranging where I keep some items. I hadn't moved in 30 years - long time for you too, right?
