it was a big day today....
my daughter has her first apartment...
I may not be able to get out of bed in the morning...
 
 
of course it is an upstairs apartment...
I lost count of how many times we went up....and down...
but we got her set up....
 
 
the day went smooth...
we make a good team...
we went in...
 got her bedroom and bath cleaned....
then we unloaded the truck...
got everything put away...
made a second trip....
she still has more to go...
but she can do the rest at a slower pace...
we made a list of things she would like...
things she really needs....
 
I forgot how exhausting moving can be...
but we got a lot done...
so that makes it all worth while....
My nest is empty...
I'm not sure how I feel about that...

I'd guess you are feeling a little emotional from this big move, in addition to being physically sore tonight

Probably a sad silence at your house.....

i know she's excited. :)

Susan said...

Yeah, I know, it's a mixed bag of emotions when they've all gone. Doesn't sound like she's to far away though. That's good.

You two have been busy. I know you will miss her but it sounds like she is close by.

Moving is work and tiring. Hope your muscles are not real sore this morning. Happy for you that your daughter did not move far away and you will still see her every week. That will help with your adjusting to the empty nest. Hugs

Glad the transition is made. It will be good and it will be "bad." But it's just another part of the Cycle of Life. :-)

Please take something for those sore muscles and put a heating pad on and get plenty of rest. Don't want to *blame* her moving, for a really bad, bad back issue in the future!

First 2 pics... Magnificent. Both are sooooooooo cool. What Photos Opppppps!

Beautiful pictures. You know what, it seems like whenever the kids move it is always upstairs!!! It was really nice when we moved to our one story home.

Michelle said...

My kids still have a bit to go, but I often wonder how it will feel when they do leave. Strange for sure. I hope you are feeling better about it.

Debbie said...

Once, it was not so bad. Now, it's brutal! My age is telling on me. :(

Carla said...

Oh I so feel your pain since it was just 4 weeks ago I did the same thing. And it's bittersweet. My body and age just can't handle the heat, stairs, and hauling.

But I guess we do survive... Barely. LOL
