The Deed is Not Done

I made one trip back to the old house rather late yesterday. I needed toothpaste and underwear. God only knows where I packed my panties. Or bras. I'd forgotten. However, when I opened the trunk of my car to stuff more of my belongings into it, I found the suitcase I'd packed with foresight. I knew I wouldn't be capable of finding clothes. Too bad I didn't recall doing that, it would have saved me a lot of time.

I slept like a baby in my new house, but awakened wondering where in the hell I was. For that split second before my mind adjusted to the surroundings, it felt odd. The bed was familiar, but nothing else was. Speaking of my bedroom, I have all of my furniture in that room, and still have space to walk around it all. I'm amazed at the space. Finally!

Tonight I work, then I'm off again until Monday. I'll try to post some pictures, but I'm having some internet connection issues. Right now, my wireless laptop is tethered to a USB port and I'm really not too happy about this. I'll try to get that fixed tomorrow.

Oh-I caught some great sales at Target and Kohl's yesterday. I only spent a small fortune trying to replace some necessities and I doubled my Target personal best. I can't believe how expensive this is becoming.

eta: where in the hell is the deodorant?

Oh Target and Kohls! They are BOTH my downfall for the month stores! Glad you slept well. I know that feeling of waking up in the new house for the first time. Weird.. Can't wait to see your photos and hope your connection problems improve soon.

Glad you slept well, Rudee, and in no time, it will be as familiar as the old bedroom was. And it's always nice to have more space. As for prices in the stores these days, ouch!!

Happy First Day of April!

Hugs,

Renie

The first night in a new home is always a bit strange. Glad you found your clothes. In no time it will feel like home. We don't have Target here, I might have to make a trip to the states just to shop some day...ciao

It must be tough on you.

I know, somehow moving seems to cost more than one would expect. Glad you're settling in. I've never thought of the suitcase idea before; it's a good one. Of course, I don't plan on EVER moving again, now that I'm in my dream home.

I got tagged and am now tagging you. Sorry...I think you'll find it funny though. Give you something else to think about than where you put your unmentionables:>)

Wow, I remember that feeling of wondering where the heck you are when you first wake up in your new home. Hope you'll be really blessed in this one. xx
