Brief Update

Halloween--need to post about that later and post the photos as well.

Saturday (November 1) a group of about 10 men from the Elder's Quorum at church showed up on Saturday at 9am to help us move. By 10:30am we were unloading at our new place. I have never seen a house empty out so fast. I've moved a lot, and this by far was the easiest and fastest! Kudos to the Elder's Quorum!

Now to get everything to fit. We went from 1800 square feet to just over 1000. I do believe another yard sale is in order!

Sunday Shel came down with a sore throat, and was diagnosed with Strep throat on Monday. Now Nat and I have the creeping crud, but it doesn't seem like Strep--yet.

Monday I got together with a long lost friend in San Francisco. That's a whole post in itself!

We moved the cats down to the new place on Tuesday--howling and yowling the whole way. My little feral cat Mouse, whom I was so worried about, made the move fairly easily and is adjusting well. Opie, our kitty boy, is happy to be with us too. I'm sure they were wondering where we and all our belongings went!

We adopted a guinea pig on Sunday---again I think that's a whole other post for you critter lovers.

We're still getting odds and ends out of the old house (we have lots of time, but it looks like the short sale is going to go through ok, and we'll be out from under it soon!)

We're getting ready for our big Primary Sacrament presentation for Sunday at church (which I'm in charge of this year!) Looks like Nat will actually participate this year. I have to give a talk though---eek! (At least it's just a short talk at the beginning, but still!)

We should have DSL by Monday. Goodness, I've missed my blog and internet!

Good luck for Sunday.

That's so great that you had lots of help with your move.

Hope you and all the pets will like your new home.

Yay!! I'm so glad the move went so smoothly!

And I hope you're feeling better!

Good luck and God Bless you and your family (and critters) in your new move. On to the next adventure!
