Actually we are considering an apartment up there but for the older boys if they choose to go to post secondary school here. They can share it and pay rent. Get them started in the world out on their own but still under our wing. Eventually it could be a rental if they choose to move out completely.

Yes. Plenty of room for everyone. Right now we're tripping over each other. With two separate living rooms upstairs, we plan on having a gym area in one for my continued rehab.

The home inspection passed. Only a few minor maintenance problems found that are already dealt with by the previous owners. The well was the biggest thing. It WAS 220 ft deep. Because of not being used for the past year, it was putting out less than a gallon a minute recovery. The owner took care of that though. He was on the phone immediately scheduling a well company to come in. They drilled another 50 feet and fracked it. Now it refills closer to 5 Gallons a minute.

Yesterday was a $hit show from the get go. I had planned to haul out a full load of boxes and misc to the new house with the cargo trailer. I got there at 11 while the furniture was being delivered. They missed delivering one of the sectionals. One of the end tables was damaged. And one of the mattresses for the split king wasn't in yet. So instead of going for another load from the house, we quickly unloaded the cargo trailer and went to Leon's (furniture store) and picked up the missing sectional and returned the end table.

Back to the house with that load and quickly unloaded it. Back to the old house for a meal of fresh walleye then got the kids packing up their rooms. By 8pm the cargo trailer was loaded again. Back out to the new house with that load. It'll be unloaded in the morning. Grabbed the fat deck trailer to bring to the old house for a load of yard stuff and bikes. That's this morning's task.

Meanwhile, her parents are down helping her unpack and sort things at the new house. I got some basic tools together for the father in law to go around and fix a few small things at the new house to keep him busy. Since I'm restricted to what I can do to help with the actual lifting and moving, I've been the one shutting trailers back and forth and overseeing basic repairs. Moving sucks. But hopefully this is it until we decide to downsize after the kids are older.

More packing loading and unloading today. It rained. And rained. Then rained some more. I got the kids bikes snowblower and a few other outdoor items loaded up and moved over. I also went to home depot to pick up some shelving material for a closet beside the kitchen we are going to use as a pantry for food. We also picked out some light fixtures we want to change out.

We're home.

Yes. It's been a hell of a three months for us. It's been crazy since the beginning of March. First we were starting adoption probation for our foster daughter. That involved a few legal proceedings in court as a standard procedure. Then my legal things in April for the accident. Followed only days after by the house and boat deal. Along with my wife totaling the SUV in an accident. It's been one thing after another.

Lmao. Hardly done. We are home but soo much to do. All the unpacking and getting the other place for sale. There's a couple trees that have to come down soon near the house that'll come down on their own if I don't take care of them. There's a bunch of brushing that needs to be done on the entrance road. We are going to build a bus shelter for the kids out by the road. The garage needs work in the heating department. Always something to do. Oh well. I enjoy being busy.

Moving the stuff is work enough.
Wrapping up all the loose ends is the not so fun part.

So I picked up a golf cart to scoot around the property easier. I already got the road trimmed. I did some tree trimming on the roundabout. Mowed the whole yard twice. I'm really enjoying it so far. Right now it's still quite busy as it's the beginning of June soon, we don't want to switch the kids schools with only a month to go and we can't get busing set up till September, we're stuck driving into the city twice a day. It'll be better in the fall. Lots to consider when you move to a different town.

It's been crazy busy since we moved. Between regular life moving unpacking putting together furniture etc, we haven't stopped. I've lost 15 lbs in a month. This week we've been working on the deck. It's coming together nicely. My wife built a 10x12 screened gazebo. I built a workbench in the garage. My dad built a wall downstairs so we now have 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. Today we assembled a 6 foot tall large dog run for the puppies.

Thanks. We picked up the gazebo, a nice wicker sectional with matching table, an accent matching lounge chair, and a fire table for the deck off the kitchen. We had everything except the umbrella on the deck off our room.

The puppies are happy. I was looking around the yard with the golf cart and found a bunch of 6ft tall chain link fence pieces piled in the woods along one of the trails. Score! Dog pen. I spent the afternoon hauling them over to the house with dad and assembling them.
