Once again, I am taking the month of December off to focus on business (my busiest month) and also to settle in to our new place.
It’s going to take me a month to recover from the move! As regular readers know, we just moved. It’s been a nightmare from beginning to end! Things were delayed on the front end (NYC move) which made the move out of our weekend home a big rush.
It took nearly ten hours to move out of our apartment in NYC, during a miserable ice and snowstorm that basically shut down the greater NYC area. It took seven hours of white knuckle driving to get to our hotel, (normally would have taken two) arriving at 4am! Then, we had to wake up at six a.m. to meet the home seller to get the keys. The movers were originally supposed to meet us at the house in the morning, but they, too, got caught in the storm so the move-in was delayed for 24 hours which was fine with us! Gave us a day to rest up!
Then, a week later, we had to move out of the weekend house where my husband also had a wood shop and an art studio. So much stuff!!! The unpaved hill was so icy and the turn into our driveway so sharp, the mover couldn’t get his big truck up to the house. This necessitated THREE smaller truckloads, three trips. over three days. When it was finally over, we were so exhausted, we could barely walk, move, think.
And now the work of unpacking, painting, etc etc, begins.
So, I’m really going to need at least a month to recuperate! I will return in January, hopefully with some new stories.
Until then, I wish you and yours a wonderful holiday season. Don’t forget, the book makes a great gift! (hint, hint!)
With much love and in complete exhaustion,
