Still Moving...

Have you every watched the "Story of Stuff"? Well even though we have tried and tried to take more stuff out of our house than we bring in it always seems like we are fighting a losing battle. And when you move everything is magnified! So, today we went back to the house in town and continued to pack up and move as much stuff as we could. Most of what was moved today ended up in the "shed" portion of the house or at the church, but there was still plenty of stuff destined for the house.

The good news in all of this is that my family (dad, step-mom, brother, sister, and Autumn) were able to come help us sort though it, load it up, and unload it. They were a great help with the moving and with keeping the kids occupied.

But, as always there is a down side ... today it was the rain. Living in a construction zone in the rain is not fun because there is no grass ... just mud. But, moving in a construction zone that is all mud is even worse. Then you have to add in the fact that we moved in the dark and on the side of the house with no hope of light... Well, let's just say it was exciting!

On the plus side, we still got the chores done and my dad and I went in the dark to pick up a bale ring that I had purchased a few months ago. He needed it to feed some round bales to the Dexters that are still living down at his place. We will see how the round bale thing goes... neither of us have ever been big fans of the large rounds, but they were available.

I'll try and take some pictures of the house tomorrow. Right now it looks like a mountain of boxes with no hope ... but, I know things will shake out soon enough. Thanks for putting up with the random and somewhat boring blog posts lately. But, in reality this is all part of starting a farm from nothing and trying to do it on a shoestring.
