The actual move was fairly strenuous. I knew I was taking too much material but was told 'take it all. And all of you know how obedient I am. We had stuff all over the place. The man from COMCAST came and spread wires throughout while the movers were still bringing more and more THINGS in. WHAT A MESS. Then Martha pleaded with the movers to begin putting things back on the truck to take to the Salvation Army or Goodwill and they willingly did just that. And finally we were alone with our mess and Martha and Jane began hiding items in the closets and under the bed, The paintings were hung, the lamps were shaded and lit and all of a sudden this place looked like home. I'm not the only one amazed by the good looks. Everyone who enters the door, is as surprised as I am. i have now lived in Mill Valley one week and every day I am pleasantly surprised about something. Yesterday I discovered that I have an official Buddy who will help whenever I need help. There is also a buddy number 2 but I have not yet met her. Everything that seemed crowded the first day, now looks elegant. Jane has magic hands and can shrink things so they fit in perfectly. This doesn't work for me and I will have to finish and begin a blog when I am more settled. Just wanted everyone to know I am well and happy and looking forward to a new life.
