we're here! the new place is great. there are lots and lots and lots of boxes. mama's started unpacking, and it's going kind of slowly. she just got the cable installed (tv, phone and internet). yep, life is good!
mama's been saying that it's been too quiet here...so now there's music on tv. and the sound of the clicking keyboard as she posts for me.
so do you want details?
mama's brother and some friends did most of the loading and moving. (mama's a lucky mama...she's got good people who love her.) she left me and ben 2 at the old place to spend the night with dad one last night.
after she and uncle jerry packed up everything, they put me and ben 2 into a single prison box. both of us in one box was the preferred mode of transport for me and ben 1...but with ben 2, it was a bit different. anyway, i spent most of the trip grooming him. he didn't mind too much.
when uncle jerry opened the prison box door, i came out and looked around. tail up, i went to see mama first. i explored some...lots of familiar smells and some new ones. then i came back to see mama again. i did that all evening. and then finally came back to cuddle with her while she napped on the couch.
ben explored a bit and then went to find a spot in the closet. he stayed there for most of the day.
we've all been pretty tired, so there's been lots of naps in between unpacking boxes. that'll probably continue for awhile.
have you seen those 'super sliders' for moving furniture? mama says that if you haven't seen those, i should tell you how great they are. with one under each corner of a big piece of furniture, one not-very-strong person can move very heavy things anywhere she wants. (still, there's been lots of heavy breathing and the occasional curse...lol)
even though the kitchen isn't completely unpacked, mama's going to go do some grocery shopping so she can make dinner instead of going out to eat. she'll be back later, and if i think of anything super exciting, i'll let you know!
