Is It Over Yet?

They’re packing the two vehicles now.  In the wee hours of tomorrow morning, we’re leaving for Nova Scotia.  I’ve only been there once and I kinda liked what I saw.

There’s lots of water everywhere, which kinda concerns me.  I’m not too fond of water because I’m a terrier and not a great swimmer.

I know something is going on because I hear lots of talk about moving.  The last time I lived like this was when we moved from Florida to Canada.  Even though I was young back then, the memories are fresh in my mind…especially when I see  all the boxes stacked everywhere.

Here’s where I take refuge from all the chaos.  Like my new hair cut? 

I’ts kinda difficult to climb up and down the ladder but my Mom and Dad help me.

I heard them mention that the new house closes on Monday, the 15th…whatever that means.  And it sounds like we’ll be staying down there until the end of next week and then come back here again.  Gee, they must like driving.  But I don’t mind because I love travelling in the car, especially when I’m with my Mom and Dad.  I get to leave my ‘mark’ in many different places…if you catch my drift.  *wink*

I’m soooooo bored.

Is it over yet?

Go safely and enjoy the ride. It's all coming together faster than anticipated and soon you will be all ready to settle in to make a house your home.
Be always in stitches.

Hi Kaarn.... May you have a safe trip and I am sure your westie will enjoy all the new places he has to mark.... The pictures frome the new place is beautiful and wish I was going to live near the water as well.... So, relax an enjoy the trip... Maybe some hand stitching might help... :)

Sharon said...

Just think, Mac! You'll have lots of new places to mark when you get to your new home! ;-D
Kaaren, I hope you have a safe trip and enjoy putting your new home together.

Jantine said...

I am sorry Mac, I am afraid it is going to go on for a while!!! But there will be an end, I promise!

Sandra said...

Hey Mac,
You're gonna love Nova Scotia. So much to see and do.

Darlene said...

Oh Mac I'm so glad to 'hear' from you - whew! I hadn't seen you in any of the pictures that Mom posted so I feared you might be packed in a box. :-) And, by the way, I love your little perch with the ladder - perfect spot to view the chaos.

Marsha said...

What a wonderful adventure, best wishes for a safe, smooth move!

Briarside Lane said...

Hey Mac... Winston here! If you are anything like me, you'll just "blink and it is a new day" with new adventures. Have fun on your road trip. Can't wait to see your new place! Have a safe trip.

Woof!... Winston Peabody III

ps... This was typed by The Lady as I am not too computer savvy. Love the new haircut, too!

Huisvlyt said...

Hi Mac! This chaos wil only last a short while. You will soon have a new place to "mark" as your own and your Mom and Dad will be very happy seeing you run around and make new friends. Don't worry about the water, it is fun!!!
Enjoy your trip, and make sure Mom and Dad drive safe, ok.

Hi Kaaren

In a few short years my house will be looking like yours....boxes everywhere. When my DH retires we will consider moving back to Canada and if it is not when he retires it will be before our green card expires....which will be spring of 2016. Hoping for the US economy to improve. It will be a major move and we will have to downsize. I am starting to stress about it already. I'm not looking forward to moving to another country...lot more involved than moving from city to city, state to state or from province to province. Good luck on your move....I'm sure you are looking forward to getting settled. I've moved 13 times in 40 years but most have been company relocation moves...another reason I'm beginning to stress already....it will cost big $$$$ to move from Michigan.....back home..... to Canada. Have a safe trip!!!!

Siobhan said...

Travel safely, Mac! I know you'll love Nova Scotia. I hope your mom will share pictures when she can!

Mama Pea said...

Ohhh, I love your Westie. Have a safe trip. Happy marking! It will be a lot of fun.

paulette said...

Wow Mac!
You are one lucky mutt!! You will find a nice dog park and make all kinds of new doggy friends and think of all those new smells! And as far as water and beaches you will find some of your best smells there and of course lots of birds to chase...so it's all good!
So relax and enjoy the trip! My mutts should have it so good!! :o)
Take care!! and tell your MOM to Keep smiling!!

Shakerwood said...

Poor baby! The confusion will all be over soon. At least you have a mom and dad who love you. Nelson and Reagan send their regards. Reagan is especially jealous 'cause you have so many new places to mark!

Tudy said...

Mac it will be over soon and then things will get back to normal.

Magnolia Bay Quilts said...

You'll be there soon, Mac! Hope you all enjoy your new home.

Such a great adventure......

Kimberly said...

How cute! Enjoy the journey

Hey Mac, your Mum let it slip that there is lots of land that they have bought just for you to frolic in - gosh you are such a lucky terrier. Just go with the flow and act surprised when the trip is over. Have fun, Miche'le from NZ

Marit Johanne said...

Good luck with your moving - for the dog, mom and dad :)

Lindah said...

Dear Mac,
You are such a patient little fellow --and so handsome in your new haircut! How exciting! The new adventure is about to begin. Wait until you get a sniff of the fresh sea breezes. Heavenly! You will forget the trauma of packing up and moving.
Best wishes for a fun adventure!

Stitched With Prayer said...

Wow, it's getting close, you'll be settled in before you know it Mac! Your mom and dad take very good care of you and my Friskie and Sadie girls said to tell you to be sure you check out all the interesting 'notes and letters' you find along the way and leave plenty for others passing through to 'read'!!! Ah...furry people speak, go figure, LOL. Kaaren, I will continue keeping you in my thoughts and prayers for safe travels and a smooth transition. I can't wait to see your new home after you put your special touch to it. Hugs...

Rumi said...

Oh Mac, you cutie you! I'm sure you will love your new home!

Karen said...

I like your new header photo.

Allie said...

Very soon, Mac - your nose will go into overdrive with all the new sniffing going on!!!

Bettina Groh said...

My Mother moved with my step-father from outside of NYC to Malagash Point, NS when she was 57 and knew no one there. She spent 29 years loving it ... loving the ocean, loving her neighbors and loving the land!

Margeeth said...

Dear mac,
I think you are doing great, being in the house with all those boxes and not going ballistic. A dog we know had to stay for a week at her 'grandparents' when her 'mum and dad' moved because she totally freaked out because of all the boxes.
We have a cat, we were very worried because we had to move twice in three months and cats do not like to move, but miraculously our cat just took it in het stride, she behaved like she lived in her new home for ever (including going outdoors) the day after both moves.

Wendy said...

All the best for the big move.
Take care.

Sandy said...

Oh Mac, you sweet little pup....hope you enjoy your traveling and your new house! There will be lots of places to mark at your new house too! Jackson and I have done it to our yard many times! Your friend in Ohio, Barney. Aka...a Standard Poodle and a Beagle.

Carol said...

Hi wee Mac. Enjoy your journey. just think of all the new areas you will have to explore once your pets are settled in their new place :) Make sure they take lots of photographs to share.

Colleen said...

Mac is adorable! I hope you settle in fast :o)

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

Oh kaaren, what an ordeal. Hope everyone gets to the new home and all is good.

Carrie P. said...

Poor puppy! It will be over soon and you will be Home Sweet Home again.

Sandra said...

Well Mac, you're probably on your way back to Ontario again now. Good job you don't need a passport!
Happy travelling, hope you all get settled before the snow flies!
Woof, from Mac(k).

Candace said...

Mac you're SO brave! And when you get there - so many new smells and places to explore! Hang in there, not long now! Sophie sends her love and good wishes!
Cheers!

Safe trip, and enjoy your new home by the water. That has got to be the ultimate!
I just discovered your Blog, and I love everything that you do. I have just started doing wool applique, and I am already hooked on it! Your Christmas pincushion pattern is absolutely beautiful, and I have already downloaded it to give it a try. Love the redwork too, and I used to do a lot of counted cross-stitch, but unfortunately, there just aren't enough hours in the day to do it all. I also like to quilt, knit and crochet. Happy stitching in your new home.
