Reckon they like a freshy for each litter but they were under my front porch for at least a decade before that. With me helping them by knocking down the nest when they were done.

Aired up all twelve tires today, that kicked the noisemaker on thrice.

Yesterday was the last day I was allowed to get my crap out of my old pole building and it turned into another 12 hour day, but we did it. Well, mostly, there is still at least a pickup load of scrap metal outside, in the driveway, that I need to haul away as soon as the weather allows, but I am NOT under the severe pressure I have felt for the past 3 weeks. This is the first day in the last 7 WEEKS I haven't been at the old house and moving something. ..

I got the borrowed trailer unloaded for the last time today and cleaned out. It is ready to return to it's owner.
The wife felt good enough to drive the lawn tractor for a couple hours and mow the hay field of a yard for me while I did that. She had a laparoscopy done a week ago Friday and has been on limited lifting and bending since. She did help clean up the old shop and load some "light" stuff yesterday, but was rather sore last night, so she overdid it and I was hesitant to let her drive the mower, but she was good.

MAYBE I can start to unwind and get into a routine here, at the new house. I really haven't spent enough time around here to have it feel like home yet. It's felt more like a room and board since the day we moved in on Sept. 7th.

Moving is such a HUGE undertaking when you like big things like we do. If we were into baby spoons it would be WAY easier!

Maybe, but we would still have a whole garage full to move...
You moved long distance. I moved 12 miles and STILL put on over a THOUSAND miles on my pickup making 50 mile round trips to the storage locker for most of the "stuff" in my pole building.. .

Tonight my five minutes turned into a few hours. I really got something done, hoping to have one of my shelves finished up in a few days.

It will be good when you get done with the man cave and get to spend five minutes on the truck.
