Sorry for the lack of updates for almost a week. As some of you know, I completed my move from Arizona to Texas this weekend. My stuff moved out and into my new house two weeks ago (I’ve been camping in my living room) and this weekend, we moved the last of the things and the animals out.
We have six cats and two dogs, so the only logical and practical way to transport them is by vehicle. So, we rented a minivan and I drove my Golf, and we took two days to drive 1,008 miles. I had the two dogs and one cat, and the husband had the other 5 cats plus my plants. Driving is not my favorite thing, as I consider it to be boring, so there were times on the very loooooooooong drive that I thought I wasn’t going to make it. I thought I would just pull over to the side of the road and refuse to go any further.
Because we’re brilliant and organized, we didn’t leave until 5p.m. on Sunday. We got to our hotel around 2 a.m. Of course, because we got in late, we didn’t leave until late on Monday (noon), and got to our new home around 2 a.m. again! Needless to say, between sleep deprivation, time changes, and a very long drive, I’m still tired and adjusting. It’s going to take lots of coffee and naps before I’m back to normal (please note that I’m referring to my “normal,” not “normal normal”).
Last time we moved, the cats seemed traumatized, hiding and acting weird for weeks. This time around, everyone is exploring, jumping on boxes, and generally having a great time. Attitude makes a difference, even in cats! We bought the dogs a tennis ball launcher yesterday, so they, of course, are perfectly fine.
Wish me luck unpacking!
