As mentioned, Amanda had a much later moving deadline than myself. While it has prolonged our period of being not-quite-settled, it was nice for her to have extra time to wrap things up (on top of a new job, ’cause that’s not already stressful) and it spaced the move out into waves, with space between each one enough to organize and regroup.

The big stuff came first: the Oriental rug, the dining room set, the chairs, and most all of the furniture for her bedroom, plus the washing machine to match our dryer. We’ve been fortunate not have to buy any big household items; between the two of us, the house is fairly well-furnished.

The rest came six weeks later, in one big haul thanks to friends from her church.

It was pretty impressive how much they pitched in
(while I mostly observed and handled hydration.)

And thank goodness for the temporary storage space of half-a-garage and a mostly-empty guest room.

So here we are now: everything we have all under one roof,
and one last push to unpack and really, truly, finally move in.
