Time Flies!

Six days to go and I am starting to get a bit nervous over what needs to be done to pack and what needs to be done at dad's new house where we are going!  

My brother and Mr. Fix-it have been working hard to get things in order so that all dad and I have to do is get off the plane and walk in the door of the new place.  They sent me a picture of some of my furniture that was moved into the living room.

It's looking pretty good.  I will need to paint some walls, hang some pictures and decorate with all my knick knacks but so far it looks great.  Very different decor than the southwest Chach ka that I am used to in the Phoenix house!

New beds are being delivered today and cable/internet installed as well.  My sister-in-law shopped for kitchen stuff last night and think she enjoyed herself!  The last thing to be done is buy a kitchen table and chairs and I think I've pretty well got that locked down too.  There will still be lots of little stuff I will need to buy when I get home but that will be fun.  

On another subject, for those of you that remember my foster dog Dottie.  I've gotten several emails from her lately!!  It seems she's learned how to do that now just like she learned how to Blog!   She says she loves her new home and has LOTS of bunnies to chase.  

And I got a picture from home.

This is Hilight.  
She says she is excited that I will be home soon.   

So.....lots and lots happening right now!


  1. It will be nice to be settled in. Looking forward to hearing how the big move went. Oh, the apartment looks great so far even without all your homey touches.

  2. Karen ~
    Love the antique pieces in the living room. I'm sure you will have much to do, but at least some of it will be done before you get there so you won't be so overwhelmed.
    Oh, that Dottie is too sweet. I am so happy to hear she is doing well.
    Is highlight a greyhound?
    Hugs :)

  3. Oh, I just love that fireplace! Not that you'll need it in the summer...but still it is pretty! I'll be thinking of you packing, organizing, and settling I do the same! Can't wait to see your new digs all spruced up the way you like it!

  4. Dottie does appear very happy in her new forever home, and Hilight patiently awaiting your arrival. Your dad's new apartment looks very homey and cozy. Good luck with the move, drive safely!

  5. That Dottie is so smart. Its nice to have an update on her. I hope you settle in to the new house quickly. Have a safe trip home.

  6. That is great that you have so many helpers. I can't wait to see your finishing touches.

  7. You are getting so much help and it's heart warming. Just take it a day at a time and only do what is necessary in a day and things will all fall into place nicely. It will take a bit of adjusting for your dad too and I'm sure that he will be happy to have his own place close to family for special occasions. Looking forward to seeing all setled. Nice to have an update on Dottie and this last dog, Hilight looks like a fine dog. JB

  8. Oh, Hilight is so pretty! She reminds me of another little fawn Greyhound I know!

    Good luck with the move! I hope it all goes off without a hitch!

  9. Karen,
    Your new place looks very inviting! I like the antique pieces too and I know you will have fun adding your personal touches!
    I think Hilight looks adorable! I love her name! Cute pic of Dottie too!
    It must be a good feeling that you've had a hand in giving her such a good outcome!
    Keeping you and Dad in good thoughts as you travel home!

  10. Looks like they did a pretty good job for you! I think that Highlight will be pretty excited to see you for sure! (then promptly go take a nap)


I love hearing from you so please leave me a message!
