This used to be our garage. A three-car garage. With plenty of boxes, tools, and miscellaneous junk, that like poor Oliver, had been turned out into the cold. It had a concrete floor, and no insulation. There was spilled oil on the floor. In short, it was a mess.
But times have changed! As my new favorite drag queen Shangela Laquifa Wadley would say, “Hallelu!” Six months after moving to Ohio, the boxes are being unpacked, the furniture is finding permanent homes, and the Bed and Breakfast has kicked into high gear. No more watching Animal Hoaders and waiting for construction to end. The day has arrived.
This is what we moved into this weekend. Granted, it’s not all in place, and there are things still to be done, but it still ain’t no garage! My patience, our patience, was at a breaking point. Living in two rooms for six months with three dogs can be quite daunting. But what doesn’t kill us, makes us stronger. And today we are supermen!
All that is left to do is teach Wally how to climb up and down the spiral staircase. The other two have learned, he has not. He is “special.”
The biggest winners in this move are the cats. No longer confined to the laundry room for most of their day, Ms. Kitty has taken to reclining on the bed and Jack has started chasing the dogs around. All is as it should be here at Orchard House. The Bed and Breakfast can finally take precedence! (Until the sheep arrive in a few weeks that is!)
