Look Me Straight in the Eye...


Tell me the truth... do you miss me?

I miss blogging. I also miss having everyone in the same house and having our computers and sofa and clothes and washer and dryer in the same building. I miss furniture. I miss our dryer. I did not know I was missing our dryer until I tried out the one that the previous residents left behind... it spins and makes noise, but no heat. Rip.

And don't ask me why this move is going so slow. Don't ask me. Come on. These things are complicated and probably actually boring to hear about. We are going just as fast as we can. We still have a couple of weeks left on our lease, so at least that is on our side.

What's today? Sunday? October? I am all turned around. So. No later than Thanksgiving, I think some things will be grooving again and even Chickenblog will be updated and possibly interesting.

Thank you.
And good night.

  2. Several years ago my dryer was doing the same thing--it would tumble the clothes but didn't heat. Or so I thought. There was flap on the outside of the dryer exhaust vent that was supposed to open when the dryer was on and close when it was not. It was stuck in the closed position. The repairman explained to me that the dryer has a sensor to keep it from overheating and because the vent was blocked, the sensor kept turning the heat off. It was a simple fix, except that our dryer vented out into a large six foot deep window well. Getting in and out of the window well was a bit challenging for the repairman! Anyway, check your dryer vent to be sure it isn't clogged and that the flap at the end (if yours has one) is working.

  3. You are so much missed, Natalie... But we do understand...truly. :o) And these things take time... Moves don't happen overnight. Wish they did though, huh?! Happy Days to you all ((HUGS))

  4. Sometimes slow moves are the best ones. You have time to put everything away without rushing and there's more time to get it all just the way you want it.

    Lady Betty looks pretty serious! And it looks like she's been having a nice dust bath!

  5. Natalie, just be glad you are close enough to move gradually. We moved hundreds of miles away, so everything had to be done in one huge, scary leap. Nothing could be left for later... it all had to be boxed up at once and ready to go. And, once we got here, we couldn't find a thing!

  7. Yes, the cute bird and you are deeply missed when you're away. But take the break needed to finish this moving stuff. We'll be waiting (eagerly)! :)

  9. Yes, we miss you! Take your time moving since you have the chance. Just like Judy in KY, I moved from Nebraska to Oregon in one HUGE, GIGANTIC haul. I had at least marked the boxes for which room they went into, and had a large shed where the overflow went. Don't even get me started on finding stuff ... LOL.

    I'm just now unpacking a lot of my craft stuff since my room mate moved.

    Take all the time you need, but watch the lease, and we'll see you when things are all at the Bird House.

  13. Of course we miss you. But of course you have to move and settle in to your own wonderful piece of the american dream. Have fun, take it one day at a time. And just think you had time to take that great photo of Lady Betty.(Ok so maybe it was before the move) But you will have moments to look forward to in the future when your all settled in your brand new nest :)

  15. I haven't a heard a peep or a mew or a sqwack from your animals in a while. Did they all make the move into the new house with you? I miss seeing their photos and hearing what they're up to, especially Betty.
