"Someone once told me that time was a predator that stalked us all our lives. I rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey and reminds us to cherish every moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we've lived."

The moving is done!!

As the old joke goes, I am hurting in places that I didn't even know I had!

Everything is inside of the new place and we are returning the keys to the old place this afternoon. Currently the new apartment is in the "Crap scattered from Hell to breakfast state" I'm hoping to get it down to "Unholy mess" by the end of the week. Our internet service didn't get transferred over properly so Mr. Hairball called customer service and got it all fixed. I am quite grateful for that as I missed having the internet and needed to do some financial stuff this morning so that everybody will have the pound of of flesh that they are owed. We ended up having the minions for longer than planned so we paid them half their money and Mr. Hairball will give them the rest on Tuesday. He was joking this morning about being glad to go back to work as he doesn't have to haul boxes around at his workplace and can rest a bit from the workout he got over the last few days.

The cats are contained in one room till things are in a better state as they would get into things that could hurt them. I'm getting good at slipping in the door to their room and slamming it shut before they can get out. I took the oldest one out last night and held her in my arms and gave her the walk through. She really wanted to get down and investigate everything thoroughly but, I just told her to be patient that soon she can come out and check out everything. The room they are in has a nice big window for their cat tree/kitty condo thingy which they like but, they are tired of being cooped up!
