Apologies, hope to be back soon!

Moving has kept me from a lot of things I enjoy–like hanging out at the Risky Regencies. This move has been more problematic than most, and I’m still dealing with items that were damaged by the Movers from Hell and other matters.

The new house has plenty of room for me, my college student daughters, and our stuff–even our books! But it lacks proper storage–especially for our books! This picture is of my future writing room. My writing desk didn’t make it around the bend in the stairwell, so I have bought a new one and will pick it up once things are more settled. Although is not quite Regency era (I am guessing early 1900’s) it makes me think of what a Regency lady might have used. I will post a picture once I get it home. One of my largest bookcases didn’t make it up the stairs (sob!) so I am planning to buy some modular shelving that can be built inside the room. For now, everything has to stay in boxes, and my writing remains on hold until I get other, more critical areas of the house functional, like the kitchen (although I did find the coffee maker).

Anyone have stories to tell of past moves. Advice for coping until I can find things?

Thanks for your patience, everyone. I will be back soon, I hope!

    After many moves, some from Hell, I suggest:
    Unpack bedrooms and bathrooms first.
    Unpack Kitchen second.
    Then get to the rest. Books in boxes can go into the Garage until you get your shelves put up.
    Place the desk near a window so you can rest your computer-fatigued eyeballs.

      Thanks! I’ve been pretty much following the order you suggest. Unfortunately, the garage isn’t available as a staging area. Movers from Hell ran out of time to pack and just threw things loose onto the truck (including mirrors with carved frames). My stuff was in storage for a few weeks, so I hired another company to move it to the new house. They wrapped the fragile items and put the lot in 6 “commercial bins” which are now in my garage. I still need to get them unpacked so they can come pick them up. So that is another thing that has to happen before the writing room. Sigh…

    Yep, going through the same thing now. Washing dishes in the bathroom sink until the kitchen is functional. As long as I can make coffee and toast some toast, I will survive!

      LOL, I started to feel at home the morning after we located the coffee maker and I was able to take a cup out onto the front porch. Anyway, good luck with your settling in process!
