Cat and I made it to our new home here in Alamogordo. So many issues along the way but we’re so happy to be settling in. We knew what we’d be bringing so much more than we would keep, and wow but that was so very true. This afternoon we found the silverware! Dishes soon I hope. Did find the pots and pans but no preparation utensils. Yet. Sleeping in our own bed is refreshing and so comfortable.
Pepper is getting used to having a huge yard – but we’ll have landscaping done and no more grass except for a patch just for her. Found a garden storage building that will work – will design a workshop for the lapidary equipment eventually – no hurry. Part of it will be storage of course. Still don’t have the ’41 Ford here yet – Travis is having scheduling issues – perhaps very early this week. Tomorrow afternoon the phone REPAIR people will return – it worked a whole 12 hours or so…….. The internet is blazing fast and love it! Our rabbit ears in the house only gives us a couple of independents, but usable minimally. Also Monday afternoon the cable crew comes to make our home connected for basic broadcast and some cable like National Geographic and such. It’s what we watch most of the time anyway.
Need go return to the base pharmacy after Kirtland AFB transfers our prescriptions. LOVING having a big range of food/restaurant choices here!!!!!! And, 3 large grocers – not just stuck with wallyworld.
Our handyman is so good! While the new cabinets are 3 months out, we’re anxious already……….. The views from our home of the mountains are magnificent. Exploring the region in the old truck is a huge fun thing to come. The guest room is simple storage right now – yet another thing to look forward to. Having the office set up is great – but about 1000# of Cat’s books to deal with. At the moment there is no place for them. Will be dumping or giving away more than 100 LP’s mostly from the 60’s.
Huge changes in our lifestyle – adjustments every day……… But, we’re handling it bit by bit…. Thanks to those who have followed and supported us in this fun though unplanned move..
