Moving Day

It’s a dog’s life

Our day began early getting all of our belongings packed in bags and ready to haul over to the two story villa that will be home for the next nine days. We were amazed at how much stuff we can accumulate in such short periods of time. We did some organizing at the RV and by early afternoon we had our gear ready to relocate. 

We went to the office and got the keys for our new place and arranged for Joaquin to come over with the flatbed truck and help us transfer our household; cloths, extra bedding, food, dog accessories and bicycles. We moved everything in then discovered that the key for the patio door didn’t lock the door. We raced over to the office on our bikes and Alfredo gave us the master key ring for our apt. and we took the collection of keys back to the casita and figured out the right key so we can lock ourselves up at night.


When we brought the keys back, I got on the office computer to print out my boarding pass for tomorrow. At first the internet wouldn’t hook up but when it did, it was super slow. I was using Alfredo’s laptop and keeping him from doing his work. Webpage: do you want to change seats? No, three minutes of buffering to the next page. Do you have bags, no. Three minutes of buffering. Do you have hazardous materials, no – more buffering. Firearms? You get the picture. Alfredo was gracious but you could tell he had better things to do. Los Arroyos had put on a big benefit event today for a senior center that is going up in the valley and everyone was running around madly.


We spent the evening organizing. Ordered up pizzas from California Pizza and twenty minutes later a kid on a motorcycle pulled up and dropped them off. Quiet night settling in at the new digs, a large two bedroom, two story villa. Dogs aren’t so sure about the change. Me neither, I’d grown kind of fond of the little open air studio by the goat fields. Over here it’s cows with a bit more noise. Soon, we’ll be back over there.
