Last day in our NY home
(and no, our garbage man doesn't hate me!)
They say to never look back.
Muffin loved the 2 days of sleep during the drive to Florida. Lily didn't enjoy a thing about it.
We stretched our leg's many times along the way.
We arrived Florida safe and sound on a beautiful sunny afternoon.
The next morning I immediately knew Mom and Dad were here with me in spirit.
Their love just shining through the trees in our backyard. Ahhh... the beauty and glory of love!
We immediately went to work tearing out the old cabinets in the garage. Thanks to the help from our favorite landscaper and his trusty chain saw.
Our new shelves will give us much more storage space.
OK, so not all of us went to work. Some just lounged around!
4 days later our stuff arrived. Butt... The people hired to unload the truck did not.
So Mommy unloaded the entire truck with the driver. She was pissed! And, she's still sore.
Butt, she got one heck of a discount because of it!!
Yes, Admiral Bagel arrived without a scratch. This is what happens when your brother helps you pack boxes. Every one of his boxes had some crack-head drawing or saying on it. He gave us all a good laugh.
We've shed a lot of tears together. Life has been tough.
He's unhappy that we were moving, but he understands.
We all had dinner together our last night in NY.
Cleaning out Dad's closet really sucked. It made everything so final to me.
Found some pictures of Dad that I've never seen here before. Go Navy!
Cleaned out his wallet and found this old picture of me in there. My fire department days.
He was so proud!
Rolf and I officially declared Florida Residency and also got our new drivers licenses.
Such a lovely mug shot!
We've been very busy unpacking box after box after box. We anticipated our load to be around 2100 pounds. We were actually at 4400 pounds! Wow, that's a lot of boxes!! We can't believe we have so much stuff. We moved into a FULLY FURNISHED house that even has our clothes in it and even our toothbrushes. What possibly did we need to bring. I guess quite a bit. Life is such an adventure.
Lily has been breaking out in horrible, itchy lumps that are really irritating her. This has been happening since her paw had that bad bacterial infection. The lumps are coming fast and more are popping up every day. I will call the Vet tomorrow. Muffin is thrilled to be back in this house. It's all on one floor and now she can go to bed whenever she wants to.
They are THRILLED to go on our evening golf cart rides again.
Tomorrow we have to find a Florida health care plan. Oh that should just be a thrill a minute. And then there are more boxes to unpack......
