We have a tentative move date of June 14th. And…
We found a house!!!
So, it’s a 1940s, 2 story bungalow. It’s cute! I’m excited!
The best parts all surround Casey. I get to have him at home! I get to borrow the landlord’s horse trailer whenever! I get to trailer him over to his arena (a few blocks away) and ride without paying a fee! The landlord will get him from the shippers and take care of him until we get there, if Casey ships earlier than our leaving. I’ll get to meet new horse people as the landlord wants to introduce me to lots of horse people.
We’ll have space for a garden and a few chickens! (Seriously, I’m going to miss my chickens horribly, especially the peeps that are growing up so fast!)
I’m getting a couple moving quotes over the next few days. I’ve got people coming out to give us more accurate quotes as I’ve been getting bullshit ones from random companies not based in the area. Seriously people, I know how much stuff we have. I have a rough weight guesstimate in my head so don’t bullshit me with a 5000 lb estimate for a large 4 bedroom house. I’ve worked in shipping long enough that you shouldn’t bother trying to pull the wool over my eyes. Don’t low ball me then expect me to pay 3 times as much when it’s all said and done!
So much to do and time seems short. Gotta get Casey all vetted up and shipped, health certs for the critters, a livestock free home for Luna, packed (if we choose to go that route ourselves) and outta here. We’ve decided to drive as well. So, I’ve got a bit of research to do now too!
