The painting is finished! And we made a startling discovery: we are out of shape. (Actually this was no discovery.) Getting up for the middle-of-the-night Buster pee was quite an adventure. Allan said this morning, "The hair on my arms hurts."
In a few minutes, the movers are coming with the rest of our stuff. Here's the game plan: movers, apply for SINs, open bank account. Since I've luckily noticed that everything is closed Monday for Labor Day, we're going to try to get those two items off our list today. Spend the weekend unpacking, then buy a car and get car insurance early next week, so we can return the wonderful but expensive minivan.
Also on our list for this weekend: enjoy our backyard. I'm hoping we can pick up an inexpensive grill and a couple of plastic chairs today, too.
Here's my new strategy to avoid total overwhelming freak-out: it only has to be done once. The to-do list is ridiculously long, but most of it only has to be done once. So that's my new mantra.
I'll post more later, including responding to comments.
Hey guess what? The Lake is still beautiful.
Hey, the movers are here! Gotta go hang out with some pups.
