We're moving, little by little

We have electricity at the trailer house. Please forgive me for my terminology, but it's my mobile home/manufactured housing, and I prefer to call it a trailer.

Anyway. Now that we have water and electricity and propane, we will move. Not that there's all that much left to move. You see, I have a pioneer spirit, and I've been moving ever since our house arrived.

With this; it's the closest thing I have to a covered wagon. Actually, using it was Cliff's idea. He got tired of watching me carrying arm-loads of stuff to the trailer and said, "Why don't you use the little red wagon?"

We bought that wagon twenty years ago as a Christmas gift for my oldest grandson, Arick. Who knew it would end up serving as a moving van?

It's amazing what I can get on there. Here's my latest load.

Here I am, arrived at my new home. Those steps are temporary; we'll have some sort of porch there before you know it.

There are so many things to do, but now we can do them a little at a time. Tomorrow the Culligan man comes to see where we'll put our water softener.

HEY -- I was just wishing Saturday that my kiddos had a little red wagon that I could borrow. LOL

My 3yo's birthday is coming up soon... I'll get him one, then use it for the next 17 years. Then I'll have to buy one of my own, I guess.

Where are you moving FROM? The barn? I don't see another house... YEAH -- moving is fun, fresh starts. Remind me of that is a few... my dh wants to move. LOL We are in the praying stage... should we? We'll see... I'm sure I'll blog about it.

Hey I have a moving van that looks just like yours. I use it to move my plants and gardening stuff around when I am working in my garden.

My mother has a red wagon like that. She uses it a lot for gardening purposes and to haul heavy, I mean, heavy stuff.

omg-good idea!

my aunt had a saying while I was growing up " put that in your little red wagon and pull it" I thought of it when I saw yours all loaded down.

Where there is a will there is a way!! You are putting that little wagon to good use!!

You're so cute....I'm very glad you're getting it done, I know what a job it is to move. Cannot wait to see the end results. xo
