We Made It!

Just a quick check-in with Weekend Wrap-up.  Both Allie and I made it to Colorado yesterday afternoon.  The movers arrived Saturday morning, and boy do pros move fast.  Allie, my dad, and I were on the road a little after 11, and spent the night in Dumas, TX, which is about an hour north of Amarillo.  Boy was it cold!  the front came through while we were driving, and it was quite windy.  Normally my Mazda is very zippy on the highways, but we were heading into a good wind the entire drive.  At least the wind died down Saturday night and Sunday was easier.


Allie's out and exploring my parents' house while we shift around the boys.  When she's out in the house, my parents' cats are in the master suite, then Allie's in the guest bedrooms and the boys are in the house.  She's having fun exploring the house and checking everything out from top to bottom.


Linking up with Hoho Runs and MissSippiPiddlin for Weekend Wrap-up.

  1. Looks like everything is going very smoothly! We moved the boys here before there was any furniture, except for a little from my husband's apartment. There wasn't much to get into back then . . .

    1. We've been letting her explore the house while the boys are in the master suite. She's exploring every square inch of the place.

    1. Really? I'm assuming it's not normally that cold. It was -5 when we woke up Sunday.

    1. Wonderful. I did pill her with the tranquilizer, but it wasn't enough to knock her out. She did talk a few times, but she's been amazing!
