First post from FortLeft’s new home. I am still trying to figure out all the ins and outs of this new laptop. Ok, I’m a bit of a luddite and finally got a laptop, probably the last person to do s0.
Our furniture and boxes and boxes and boxes of stuff arrived two weeks ago tomorrow. Progress has been made in unpacking, but when you have 6000+ books and the new house is configured differently, it is hard to place bookshelves and unbox. Lots of stuff is ending up in the attic for now. But things are beginning to feel like home. New routines – like curbside composting – are being established.
Don’t know when you last moved to a new state, but trying to change everything has taken a lot of energy and time. I’m sure we will be discovering things we’ve missed for a while, but I think all the important stuff has been changed. Moving to a different country would be even more difficult, I imagine.
The cats are adjusting and all the fish also survived the move. The cats have explored their new digs and have found their sleeping spots. I think they will miss the stacks of boxes when they are gone as places to jump to and sit on.
A fellow outside of the post office tried to get me to sign a petition about something the Board of Selectmen did, or maybe didn’t, do. Had to tell him I didn’t know enough to have an opinion. Not having an opinion is a bit strange for me, but I will keep reading the local paper and will figure things out. For now, just enjoying a rainy day in Vermont.
Haven’t quite gotten the hang of inserting links and pictures yet so am re-using one. But I wanted to do this first post before too much more time passed.
Enjoy your new home!
