Paper Plates and Take-Out

6 Sep
Take Out Food

Chinese, Thai, and Pacific Northwest Food Containers. No, 6.30 on the container is NOT the date, that is what time we wanted our Pad Thai ready to pick up last night.

Yep, that is pretty much where we are at with the moving stage. This weekend is the “big stuff move” while the rest of the week is clearing out the rest of the smaller stuff and figuring out what clothes goes to the condo and what goes with us camping.

Oh! You probably need an update on where we’ll actually be living the next couple of months. We won’t be able to close on the house we want to buy until mid- or end-October. Since we have to be out of this house by Friday, we are temporarily moving to my parents one-bedroom summer condo (which also has a murphy bed in the living room). For now the contents of our house are going into storage.

The only hitch with this plan is that my parents are still here for another two weeks. Since school has already started, we’ll get our daughter and her clothes moved over there, and hubby and I will then take off to spend a week relaxing at our RV river property at the coast. Salmon fishing and crabbing season are in full swing now! We’ll get back the day before my parents fly back to Texas and squeeze the five of us (and our dog) in there for a night, and then spend the rest of the weekend assessing what the heck needs to be done next.

Last, but not least, let me introduce you to another foodie blogger who found me recently. The only reason I bring this up is that we seem to be some kind of “soul-mates.” Why, you ask? Because we have led almost parallel lives! Our similarities are fascinating. We both have roots in Houston, Texas. Both our fathers worked in the oil industry and moved around a lot. We both went to the University of Texas and earned a degree in Journalism from there. We are both 51 years old. We both write foodie blogs. AND… our favorite book as a young child was “Harriet the Spy.” Let me introduce you to Stacy, from Food Lust People Love. As it turns out, we went to grade school together at St. Thomas More in Houston. We moved from Houston to Ohio just before 7th grade, and I lost touch with her after that. How we never bumped into each other on campus boggles my mind, as we both worked at the college newspaper at the same time. I am looking forward to reading her blog for inspiration to start cooking and blogging again after we settle into our new home. Thank you Stacy for finding me again so I could find you! 🙂
