First, my ex-wife and step-kids moved to their place and started to get settled. So the moving mess around the house started. Packing, not packing, separating things, figuring out who was taking what, etc. Pain in the neck! Even the kids were ready to just be done.
As that was wrapping up, I got a nice notice from the county about my dad's estate. Complete with pictures, and a very short time frame to go down and take care of the yard. Granted it needed to be done. However it's easier said than done when you live about 5 hours away. So my step-dad and I went down before the sun came up, and got there a little after 9am. Then spent the next 11 hours pulling weeds, cutting back growth, mowing grass, the works. By the time we were done, we were using flash lights and head lights on the truck to make sure we got all our garbage taken care of. Then made the long ride back to Albuquerque. It was a long day.
Then comes the next part, packing and moving my stuff. Sadly, my water bed turned out to be a total loss. So I was pretty upset about that. Next, my entertainment center has seen it's last move after a little over a decade of use and a half dozen moves as well. Luckily I was prepared to look into new furniture at some point. So now, my kiddo and I are settling into our new home for now. Unpacking isn't so bad. But holy moly! I'm tired, grumpy, and sore. On the plus side, the dogs really seem to enjoy their new yard! I should probably sweep that side walk off for them tomorrow.
