Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

More totes of books

Another busy day so far. Went by the old house first thing in the morning and loaded up a few more totes of books. The totes are kind of small but still, I can fit 4 of them in my car! There is other stuff around yet but nothing that we need so every time I come by to check the mail I'll just take a few more things. While at the house I also read a few more blogs. With the totes in the car I went to the commissary. I fit my groceries in the front seat and all around the totes (Kenny would have been proud). Cupboards getting pretty bare so I had to restock. It was so nice having such a wonderful pantry to fit it all in. There is still lots of room for more stuff!! I've never had so much room before!

When I got back home I had to wait for a gardening truck to back out of the way so I could get my car in the garage. They were putting in sod by the side of the house and also some stones between the driveways along the row of townhouses. It has a nice finished look to it now.

After unloading and putting every thing in it's place I had a quick bite to eat and then made another trip to the house. Filled 4 more totes with books and fit a few extra things all around them. I did another good pack job which Kenny would have been proud of. I say that because he is an excellent packer. I am always surprised what he can fit in a space!!

And here I am at the computer for a bit before heading back home to unpack. I plan to sit around this evening and maybe read in front of my fireplace. :-)

Tomorrow our new kitchen table arrives. I am supposed to get a call this evening telling me what time. I'll take some pictures for my next post.

I hope your Tuesday as been a Happy One.


  1. Can't wait to see your pictures...!!

  2. You must be ready for a break by the fire...hope that you get to enjoy some down time just so that you can recoup and do it all over again. You must be nearing the end of all this schlepping...I hope!

  3. I'm glad you're getting your books in small batches -- that way you can keep track of what is where. It took me forever to find all my books the last time I moved.

  4. I can't wait to see the photos, either. This is so exciting--a new house -- a gorgeous kitchen!

  5. Moving in a Corvette is a challenge! I'll be calling soon :)

  6. I hope you were able to enjoy that fireplace! You have been so busy! Can't wait to see the pictures!

  7. I'd tresure that new found space in the kitchen. I seem to fill up space with out any effort. I swear stuff breeds in my house and multiples!
