Busy Moving

Karen and I are now moving into our new house.  "New" to us in June of 2017. This well maintained house was built back in in 1972.  It is 45 years old.  

We are very busy!  

We got the keys to our new home on Friday, 6/16, at 3:30 pm.  

On 6/19, we got connected online via our provider, XFinity/Comcast, to 266 television channels (news, sports, movies, documentaries, community, health), many HD quality channels, DVRs, 200 Mbps Internet, pay per view or pay channels, streaming, Wifi, applications, and a telephone with unlimited nationwide calling and messaging.  I think it is called the X1 Premier Triple Play Package.  What a substantial WiFi Internet upgrade from Red Bluff, at less cost. 

On 6/19, my son helped me replace all the door latches and deadbolts.  He assembled the new Toro lawn mower, and mowed the back yard and Karen mowed the front.  

I am trying my best to not do any strenuous lifting or pulling, not lift more than 10 pounds, and rest more until September of 2017.  I am hoping my heart pacemaker implantation surgery on 6/6 will continue healing well.  

On Wednesday, 6/21, we drove 500 miles south to Red Bluff.  We met the Valiant Moving Company movers at South Main Mini Storage at 3:30 pm.  We  rested in the Comfort Inn motel room.  They finished loading at around 10 pm. 

On Thursday, 6/22, we checked out of the storage office, rested indoors, and enjoyed Mexican dinner with Debbie, Marya, Jordan, and Tami.  Since temperatures soared to 107F, we rested in an air-conditioned room.  

On Friday, 6/23, Karen and I drove 500 miles north to Vancouver, Washington.  

On Saturday, 6/24, the movers arrived and unpacked all of our belongings.

On Sunday, 6/25, Alicia and Sean helped us get our beds set up, and moved our belongings from their house to our new house.  Both girls also helped.  We slept in our new home for the first time on Sunday night.  

On Monday, 6/26, Mick helped us with shelving installation and other projects.  

Obtaining and storing needed household supplies.  Learning and discovering.  Sorting boxes, unpacking, shelving ...  We have moved something into this house every day since 6/16.  

Since we live so close to our children now, we all help with house sitting and dog care and house care, when we travel.   We keep a security eye on all our homes.

    Hi there, Good luck with your move. I have a question on the difference between Tai Chi and Qi Gong. I've stuck with Ba Duan Jinn for 2.5 years. I love that the Eight Pieces of Brocade are so easy to learn yet so subtle - I see nuances every day. Am I right in thinking Qi Gong is older (1500 years old) yet Tai chi is newer (300 years old)? It seems to me Tai Chi really needs a teacher to learn, yet Ba Duan Jinn is easy enough to learn alone.

    Would love to hear your expertise.

  3. Wishing you all the best in your new home.
