We’ve arrived. We’ve left our empty nest, downsized, and relocated from the southeast to the southwest. For the first time in five months, we, our vehicles, and our possessions, are all in one place. It’s been a dramatic change in venue, and we’re excited to begin the next chapter of our lives in amazing new surroundings!
We moved into our new home about two weeks ago, before most of our things arrived from the east. We had brought the bare minimum of linens, dishes, kitchen utensils, appliances, and some folding furniture in our car, so we could make the place livable and “camp out” for the short-term.
We were glad to have a week or two to assess our new rental. There was some cleaning, and some critical repairs for the property management company to make. And we benefited from a few days and nights in our new abode to get a sense for how we would lay out the rooms and configure our life here, before everything arrived.
