With each succeeding day our upcoming departure gets more-and-more real. We have set the date to move. We’ve got the closing dates set on this house and our new home in California.
We plan on driving the 2,867 miles in Helaine’s car. Doppler will live the lapdog’s dream. She will NOT be strapped to the roof.
The guy buying our home in Hamden came by today to have the septic system tested. I don’t blame him. I would have too. There were no problems. We passed with flying colors and a minimum of stink.
During our last trip to California we (meaning Stef and Helaine) chose flooring and other custom features for the new place. I was there for some reason. Not sure what it was.
Stef, whose own apartment is really well decorated, was incredibly helpful and insightful. I was impressed. She had great suggestions, most of which were implemented.
Our Connecticut house will come with most of the furniture. We plan on taking none west! That lead to furniture shopping today.
I know, it doesn’t sound logical. But, with the lead time on furniture, it made sense to buy here and have it delivered there!
Helaine, Doppler and I hopped in the car and headed to the furniture store. A few hours later I had the bill for three rooms fully furnished rooms.
With each passing day here are more “t”s to cross and “i”s to dot. We’re getting closer.
I am both melancholy and excited.
