Well…Here I am. I’m officially living in the country. What have I done?
I’ve moved out of the old house of 23 years and there are strangers living there now. But that’s OK. Thinking about the old house makes me sick. I’m glad I’m out and it’s over. I probably never should have lived there anyway. I checked my bank account today and the wire came through. The money is there and it’s final.
Yay!! My Pod of stuff has arrived and I can take my time moving it in. It might take a while since the house is still under construction. I set up my bed, installed the toilet, set up the TV and installed the stove. All I need to finish making it livable would be to bring in the refrigerator. I might have some help to do that tomorrow.
Yes, it feels strange but it also feels good. I spent most of today in front of the TV watching Iron Man movies and letting the new house feeling soak in for a while. Even though I’ve been out here building for eight months, when it actually becomes your home, things feel different.
I’m also taking it a bit easy to allow my knee time to heal. It’s still swollen and red but getting slightly better day by day. This is taking a long time though. I would love to get back to putting up the drywall but I think considering the circumstances, I’ll let it go for a few days and spend time making the house livable. I could live in the RV but it’s high summer now and the air conditioner in there is ear splitting. The AC in the house is working so I’m going to just live there while I work. I’ll just have to try to keep it cleanish rather than just leaving tools and construction materials lying all over.
I can do this. Of course I have no choice but I can do this. I’m enjoying the peace and quiet. I’m enjoying the calmness of life around me. I’m enjoying the simplicity. This is all what I’ve dreamed about and now it’s here. Sweetness!!
Tomorrow the Dish Network guy will be here to hook up my satellite dish. I have my receiver with me and it has some stuff to watch so I still have that. The TV really makes the house feel homey. I’m glad I hooked it up. I have thousands of movies to watch as well on my WDTV.
It’s evening now and I’m getting ready to go to bed. I’m looking forward to it. It has been a very nice and calm day. I feel my blood pressure going down. Maybe I won’t need my meds for that anymore.
Food has been a little difficult. Not having my fridge working and missing a few basics has made eating limited but so far so good. Tomorrow I’ll go to the store and get a few supplies. I need somewhere to keep my pantry goods. I guess I’ll be living out of boxes for a while. There is a plastic shelving unit in the back of the Pod but it will be a while until I can get to it.
Well. I guess I’ll head to bed now. I’m tired even though I didn’t work much today. I think I am just exhausted from the whole moving experience. It really is quite a thing.
