Well, not really. We’re moving on Thursday, so by vacation, I mean I’ll be packing, taping, hauling, and wrestling
an alligator my toddler.
Thankfully, my husband’s family is all local so we’ve had tons of helping hands around to speed up the work. We rented a 30 foot U-HAUL truck yesterday, filled it, and…we still have a house full of stuff! How can that be?
We have movers coming on Wednesday to pack up the rest of our furniture. They’ll hold it over night because we close on both houses on Thursday- ours at 9 am and the new house at 11 am. We’ll also be spending Tuesday and Wednesday night with Nana and Papa.
I think it goes without saying that this week will not be filled with thoughtful, baked-with-love meals. Instead, I’ll be fueling my family with cereal, granola bars, Kettle Chips, caffeine, and goat milk. Who’s hungry??
I’ll be back next week when the dust has settled and Verizon has installed our internet. I’m sure I’ll have lots of tales to tell, including what NOT to do when moving with a small child and the best take out to eat one handed while simultaneously unpacking all of your earthly possessions.
Until then, take care, y’all!
P.S. Unfortunately, I did not win the Belle Grove Plantation Cookie Contest. That honor went to some delicious looking molasses cookies. I am happy to report that Dolley’s Delights will be served at the Belle Grove Plantation on Sundays during their Lemonade Socials. Thanks so much to everyone who voted- I appreciate each and every one of you and hope to fill your bellies with cookies very soon!
