It’s begun. The move is happening now. See? Our new digs ain’t too shabby:
Sigh. This is so cool.
We’ve already started the process of moving our stuff — little things here and there and lots of cleaning in between. Serious cleaning. Tomorrow, BJ and a friend will start putting up the rest of the fence while I mop, dust, wipe, and (hopefully) paint. Things are a little surreal right now. School, teaching, and writing feel unimportant (even though I know they aren’t) in the midst of this wild new thing. This is a life thing. Wow.
Oh, and look! The house came with some free, old furniture!
Guess what else it came with — two more (old-ish) couches, a broom, blinds, yellow lace curtains (which I tore down and threw away today), one roll of toilet paper, a Christmas tree cotton ball holder, and a fly-swatter. Nice perks, eh?
You know what made it real for me, though? Our own city garbage can. Hello, um, Texas? We’ve really arrived now.
We’ll post plenty more pictures soon!
