Very tired so I'll be brief. I might expand on some of these things another day.

Seven guys (plus Ice and the kids and me, of course), five hours, two trips, and the move was done. Well, mostly. Somehow, all of us missed one very large piece of furniture. I'm still baffled as to how that happened.

The only injury occurred the following day when I dropped a knife block (empty but still heavy) on my foot, turning my toe many shades of black and blue. It looks dead.

I had to choose between my desk and the office. The office won.

The cable guy (a young guy) came on Monday and got me back online. He was more than a little surprised when I turned on the computer and Linux appeared.

My mother-in-law had me in tears two days before the move.

Saying goodbye to my neighbour and friend (although I never actually said goodbye) was much much harder than I expected.

The GHA house looks like a tornado went through it. A tornado that left Lego and Pokemon cards and little toys in its wake. Oh, and dog hair, dust bunnies, and cobwebs.

Went to the liquor store on Tuesday and introduced myself to my brother-in-law's mother (who works there). She scares me.

The new waterbed mattress is divine.

Tucker loves the backyard and the greater freedom in the house. He's been a much better dog because of it.

The General came for a walkthrough and asked if it felt strange to be living here. Both Ice and I said no. It really doesn't. Despite the boxes and not being able to find things and the various hassles we've been dealing with, it feels more like home than the other place ever did.

We took the kids to see the Canada Day fireworks tonight. Same place as the last couple of years since there weren't any planned for this town. The fireworks were good but it wasn't the same without everyone there and it made me sad.

Added more photos from before we moved in, starting with the sauna.

And then you said

Canada Day just wasn't the same for us either. :(
Let's play soon!

Looks like a huge house. Kinda fond of the retro wallpaper in the guest room. Ships are cool
