SURVIVING THE COLD & Countdown to Moving Day
We Move In Four Days!
And with that looming, packing and getting things moved to the new house ahead of time is a priority. Yes we are getting a U haul, but the more work done now, means the less there is to do later.
However, as mentioned yesterday, it got COLD here. -27C (-16.6F) feels like temp of -33C (-27.8F). We did our best to get chores done. We had a hot lunch. And then we headed out to Walmart. It is warm there. That is my reason. I bought some furniture for the school room that I didn't plan on buying. It will be nice in the schoolroom which is the end goal. You will see it when I have it set up :)
When we got back the house was still cold, (you can see in the pic Indy kept his boots on to keep his feet warm), but being warmed up the kids were ready to go. We got Indy's toys packed up (except trains and Legos to keep him occupied for the next few days).
Indy got right into packing. Actually he has been waiting to do this.
Tonight it started to warm up (sooner then the weather earlier predicted). the kids went to bed comfortable. Tomorrow will have a high of -3C (just a few degrees below freezing). Us adults all cheered and made a game plan for the next few days.
We also made arrangements for a fundraiser for Aunt Lisa's Powwow (the Algonquin Park Powwow). It was all Auntie Claus' idea. We will host a comedy show. DH's good friend is a comedian and helps manage a yuk yuk's club so he is helping us out on this. I won't mention our headliner's name until we get confirmation but I think this will be a real successful fundraiser...at the very least it puts the fun in fundraiser. (Warmth sure is motivating:)
