We're home. In Winnipeg. Got here on Wednesday, signed all the important papers, and moved right in.

However, we still lack some basic necessities. Like, say, our belongings. We hear those will arrive at the customs depot on Monday, but in the meanwhile, I lost feeling in my tushy and made the professor buy me chairs. Of course, it was a patio set and between that and a grill, it killed an entire day of assembling things.

Between cleaning the refrigerator and other fun new house activities, I haven't had a chance to update everybody on the blog. It also, sadly, doesn't leave all that much time for knitting! The short version is? The dogs did fine. We did fine. We had some wily adventures, as anyone might on a several day, 1300 mile drive. I have even written them down and will post stories soon.

We'll be walking our dogs multiple times a day for the foreseeable future (no backyard fence yet) and despite our best efforts, we still haven't gotten the cable guy to come out and get the phone hooked up. We're working on it. Be back soon. :)

Yay, you're here! Glad to hear that everything went well with the move, and that the dogs and you have made it to Winnipeg safe and sound. Plus you're just in time for Fringe Festival! If you get a chance, check it out.

Welcome home!

OK, what was the total box count? And the book box count?

(I feel your pain with the dogs. In June, The Professor and I took two very unhappy cats on a four day, 2400 mile truck ride.)

So glad you're there! With a patio set and a grill, you've got the very basics covered (I assume you have something to sleep on???).

Welcome home!

There is no place like home, eh?

Glad all is well, looking forward to hearing more about moving in!

Phew... great to hear that you made it all in one piece! We once moved with two 10 week old pups (the 'old guys')but that was only a ten mile move! Look forward to hearing how you settle in.
