Yesterday was moving day for Eva and Jarig so I went over there to help. I took the 8:00 train to Groningen where Eva picked me up and drove us to their old place. We packed a lot of boxes and moved them into the rental truck. We then took that first load to their new house. I rode along with Eva and the zoo in the car (her, me, the kid, the dog and two cats) to wrangle the cats. Snoes, the old-lady cat, was in a carrier, but we had none for Briek, the other cat, so she was leashed and on my lap. It actually went surprisingly well, Briek seemed interested in the goings-on outside the car so behaved nicely.
Once at The Farm we put the cats in the dog bench so they wouldn’t escape and run off in the general chaos of a move. After unpacking I headed back to the city with the other guys and the truck to get another load. When we got that back at the farm, I spent some time setting up the computer so it would work, built stuff and moved things. Then there was more unpacking when the truck came back for the third time.
Along the way we had a lot of fun with the whole crowd, especially watching Hidde (the dog) run around like crazy because People! Awesome! New Stuff! Awesome! and Feije entertaining us by just being his own two-year-old self. Although we did forget about the poor cats for a bit o.0 After a few hours of working Eva and I were back in the bedroom where the cats were. I went to see them and suddenly realised we had put them in there without food or water. So we quickly got that settled, I think they forgave us 🙂
Around dinner time, Eva had to drop Mellien and Bas off at the train station, so we piled the four of us into the car. Along the way, she dropped me off at the snack bar to get us all food while she drove on to the station. The snack bar was surprisingly quick, cause when Eva returned, I was already sitting with our completed order waiting for her. Back at The Farm, we ate, then did some more last minute things and one by one most people left. Eva was kind enough to drive me back to the station in Groningen so I was home at a really decent hour.
I did skip Pilates this morning. I figure that with yesterday, I’ve done enough excercising 😀 And the sore muscles I was expecting today were a lot less. I’m only feeling my arms really, the rest is pretty much fine. Yay me 🙂
