Time to unplug

Our third truck for this move will be here shortly, so it's time to unplug the computer, TV, cable and all that stuff for the move to the new place. This computer has been chugging along rather haphazardly lately, so I don't really even know if it will fire up again after shutting it down. (So much for spending a little more on a computer that would last more than 2 years.) (Don't get me started.)

I drove Bill into work so I could have the car. Mary works today.  The drive into Las Vegas was awesome! The construction on I-15 has progressed nicely, so there wasn't dead-stopped traffic on the way. Well, and it was really early, too. So, that helped.

There are a ton of great views when driving down the freeway, but nowhere to stop and take a picture! I tried to catch the sun coming up, lighting up the east facing buildings on the strip as I left the Gulfstream parking lot, just off Las Vegas Blvd., but it didn't really catch it well.


The house is quiet for now. Mary should be up soon, getting ready for work as I scurry around and get the last few things ready for the movers to come. 

We had help Saturday from a couple of guys Bill works with and they knocked out a ton of moving! There is only a few things left for the 'hired' guys to move today.

Bill worked his butt off all weekend getting stuff done. I honestly don't know how he did it all. 

The dogs are quite confused. We've taken them all over to the new place so they could see that the stuff was there and they could stink it up a bit with that oh, so lovely dog smell. Ellie is the needy one, though. She doesn't like it at all. Of course, the last time she witnessed all the packing, the boxes and the movers she ended up in a crate and on a plane. We keep telling her not to worry, but there's no convincing her. She thinks we're evil and mean and just trying to mess with her, I think. When she sees Mary's bed put together at the new place, I think she'll be convinced. Maybe.




Tail tucked, panting and hiding under the table by Bill. She is not a happy dog right now. Saturday night they did have a romp in the grass at the dog park across from the new place. She was SO happy to zoom around in the grass! I know she'll settle in, but it's a bit heartbreaking to see her confused little face.

Maddie and Annabell don't care a bit.

Time to get moving!
