1st week at our new house

We left for our new house on Wednesday the 23rd.  We almost didn't make it because when we woke up in Buffalo we discovered it had snowed 9 inches overnight.  That is really crazy to me because I'm barely used to 9 inches of rain A YEAR!!!!  So we were snowed in for a bit until it melted.  Thankfully, it did around 2 pm and we were able to arrive at our new place around 5 pm.  It was a mess of boxes and a scramble to unpack some of the kitchen stuff to make some noodles with.  Unfortunately, we couldn't find any silverware so we had to take turns eating with the spatula.  But it was fun.  Also, what we had unpacked made a huge mess of paper that we jumped into.  Thankfully, we got the kitchen done because on Friday we all started to feel a little sick.  The rest of the weekend we got more sick.  Awful headache, runny nose, wet cough, achey body.  We didn't do anything in the house for 4 days.  That is how miserable we were.  Uhg.  Today is Wednesday the 30th and it's the 1st day I'm feeling a little better.  Still really rubbish though.  So when the rest of the house gets unpacked I'll take more pictures.

  1. This brings back memories of all the times we moved. It always amazed me how the small stack of paper they carried in to pack with grows into a mountain of paper when you unpack.
    Have fun in the new place.

  2. Pei pa koa is pretty decent cough medicine (from herbal as I remembered), great non alcoholic medicine, some western cough medicine are more effective, but this is non drowsy.
