Saints be praised!!! Jeff + I are officially moved into our new house!!!
I’ve been neglecting my posts lately because: a) my head hasn’t been on straight lately + b) my head hasn’t been on straight lately. I am bushed, people. Tuckered out. Dog tired. Threadbare. Beat to hell.
Packing, packing, packing, packing. I was so sick of it!!! A little diva princess was making sure that I knew that she was EXTREMELY dissatisfied with all the hoopla + boxes everywhere, which were ruining her nap times!
Look at her, she’s utterly disgusted!!!
I call that her bitch face.
Last Sunday we had the most A-list, prime grade, top-of-the-pops moving team that came to our aid!!!! We were eight people strong!!! My mom is reading this right now + probably screaming, “SHELLI + JEFF YOU ARE SO BLESSSSSSSED!!!!!!”. We are. We are the two luckiest people in British Columbia!
Take notes, if you are moving + have friends in the film industry, ask them to help. People in the film industry know how to hustle!!! They know how to get things done, get it done fast + get it done right!!! They’re organized, methodical + no nonsense!!!
Cousin Neil is extremely detail oriented + packed all of our many fragile pictures with lots of care!!!
Jeff’s brother Tom is super hardcore + has a super brain that is amazing at playing tetris in our rented Uhaul. I’m the worst at spatial planning. My nephew Matt was there all day helping out + was a tireless hard worker!!!
After packing up the old house + the Uhaul, we started moving into the new house after a pizza break.
Lifting the larger items into the second story. Jeff + I could have never done all of this by ourselves!!!
The entire move took about 5 hours! We were all so exhausted in the end! After everyone had left + things settled down, I let Megumi out of her carrier to wander around her new home. I have NEVER seen her adjust so quickly + happily to a new environment in her whole kitty life!!!!!
Such a good sign!!! She LURVES her new house SO MUCH!!!!! Rolling around, skipping, jumping, happy mews!!!
Jeff + I love our new home too! There’s still boxes everywhere + it’s going to take awhile to get everything in the right place. But I want to profusely thank our moving team for all their positive energy + awesome muscle!!!! We love you guys!!!!
It really is a gorgeous place. Remarkably private as it is set in amongst a lot of greenery and, about the only views of the other houses are over the rooftops or through the bushes.
Thank you Brian! It is a perfect little pocket that we’ve found in Vancouver! I’m glad that you were able to see it during your visit!
I never noticed before how Megumi and the “Maneki Neko” both share a bent front paw, what an auspicious kitty you have! Mazel tov on your new place, I’m sure you both are already really loving being there!
She is an auspicious kitty, isn’t she?! Thanks, A – wish you could come see the new house!
Yay, happy new house! I love it and feel nothing but happiness for you in your new space:)
Thanks Deb! It’s the Happy Tree House!
