Forever and a Day

I can’t believe how long it has been since I’ve written a post here.  It has been a whirlwind the last month or so, being pulled between designing our new home, packing everything we know into an 8 x 16 foot Pod, and living between homes for 2 1/2 weeks.

We are making some great progress here, the close date is supposed to be the 28th.  We finally have most of the kitchen done, the paint is up on the walls, and the design elements are coming together.  Still to be completed is the master bath, sun porch, and exterior paint.

The fun part has been looking for the furniture that I’d like to put in the new house, though this has had it’s own challenges: a very opinionated husband and a very tight budget.

The Move:

This took forever!  And countless storage boxes from Target, but I was able to pack up 80% of our house, and the rest we somehow managed to squeeze into this Pod.  The sofa and kitchen table didn’t quite make it, but I’m not so sad about losing those pieces.

The next few weeks are going to be such a whirlwind.  Since it takes at least 2 weeks for the Pod to travel from Huntington Beach to Charleston, we’ve decided to take advantage of our timeshare and stay one week in Tahoe and one week in Napa – working both weeks, but enjoying those weekends as much as possible!

Saturday & Sunday were pretty tough for me, packing up all of my things and saying good bye to all of my friends and family.  It’s nice having this 2 week buffer to sort of settle into the idea of the cross-country move.

In fun knitting news, I found out that I had a design accepted for the Knitscene Winter 2017 Issue!
