The last week has been grueling with last-minute packing, loading, and driving 1,000 miles in a Penske truck. Now that we’ve moved everything into our new home, it’s a mess! We’re all sore, swollen, and exhausted!
Because I can’t lift anything, I was just a passenger on our long journey. I’ve never been this far west and moving in a 26 foot truck isn’t the way to be a sight-seer. We did see many beautiful sights along the way. We also fought the traffic, bad roads, and strange hotels. We’re thankful that we made it safely and no one was injured.
My feet and ankles are severely swollen and that has stopped me from unpacking. I’ve unpacked about 10 boxes in the last two days. Our home needs a good cleaning, but for now we’re trying to get the washer and dryer in our small laundry closet. We have yet to find any clean bath towels. We’ve been using paper towels and hand towels. If I don’t find them today I’ll need to make a trip to Walmart.
Last night the internet was hooked up and so we have television. It’s great to be able to use the internet and watch a little Wimbledon this morning. We seem to live in a quiet and friendly neighborhood. Archie has been very nervous and has stayed right next to me. He’s such an anxiety-filled dog!
I’m very thankful to be here with my family, but I can tell that it’s going to take a long while to have this place feel like home. There is so much to adjust to and I’ll be meeting my first new doctor in a couple of weeks. I’ll have to depend on God to help me and strengthen me, physically and emotionally. This truly is an adventure!
