We moved into our new home almost a month ago. It started out with a bang. We were moving some items in Dave’s pickup truck and as he exited the vehicle, the only tree in our yard slowly fell on the roof and hood of his truck. Dave watched, helplessly. He was not injured.
Luckily, across the street was a car alignment shop and one of the mechanics, Bill, knew someone who could come over right away and extract the tree from the truck. The local collision center sent a tow truck. It was not totaled. Yippey! Ti’s a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado and the current value is about $3000. It doesn’t have a lot of mileage so we were relieved we didn’t have to buy a new vehicle.
We used a rental vehicle and our insurance for that ran out last Friday. At $38 a day, it adds up fast. We picked the truck up on Friday. It cost $5800 to repair. We had $500 deductible. But, wow — a very expensive tree.
We used movers for all our furniture and that part was seamless.
Unpacking and organizing takes longer than you expect. There is disorder almost everywhere. We have sheets on the bed and clothes in the closet, plus clean towels, so we are not suffering. We have eaten out a lot, and it’s time to go on a diet.
I’m excited to design my new office sewing studio. More on that later.
