|Eerie cool photo of Mark walking back up the driveway.|
No time for an elaborate post, but here's what happened when I took a quick break from an intense work period yesterday to beat heavy rains a-comin':
|Graduated with honors and |
is working in her field of study.
I'm so proud!
- Went to Old Spot, packed a bit, prepped what I could on the house for travel, loaded up the cargo trailer and pulled it to the new spot.
- On the way to New Spot, cargo trailer (a.k.a. "Squirt") fell off the hitch. I did not document the event because I was too mad at myself for 1) causing a delay, 2) damaging my new trailer and 3) being in such a hurry that I'd missed that the ball catcher thingy didn't "catch." Ugh. Luckily, a Good Samaritan stopped to help discover the ball catcher thingy was bent and helped me unbend it and I was on my way.
- Swung back through "town" to pick up Mark, with a smart stop to attend Lauren's graduation ceremony. I'm so proud of her! She's officially a working Medical Assistant! They grow up so fast.
- Back to Old Spot to finish prepping the house for travel, loading all the steps and whatnot—and then getting the house out of the woods.
Through the trees.
In the dark.
And Bruce has another honor mark from the same tree that got him in the back bumper. Lol
So, that happened.
- Made a pit stop at the weigh station to finally weigh my house. Because we're newbs and the folks at the station hadn't weighed a tiny house before, we were all unclear about which part of the scale to put things on, so we weighed it a couple times. We didn't get a consistent number, so I'll be going back at some point to verify... kind of like a second opinion? Needless to say, it's pretty heavy.
Also, it started to rain at this point.
|Fun with Prisma|
- Finally landed at New Spot around 3 a.m. We literally parked the truck with the house still attached and started back to "town."
- On the way home, Bianca's check engine light came on.
Never a dull moment in the world of tiny houses.
