It's been a long day today. Been trying to get everything here at the house installed and running etc. But, I wanted to at least take a few moments to say thank you to each and every one of you for all the concern and caring that I heard in the thread that I posted before I left.

The drive actually went really well. I Went from Portland OR down to Vegas where I stayed with my brother for a day. I wanted to at least get a chance to see him before I hopped over to the east. The cats handled everything better than I expected. After leaving Vegas they decided that the van was their new home. No matter where I went they figured it was just something else to watch out the window. We had tried to make it as easy on them as possible. Instead of crates, we used figure 8 harnesses and leads to make sure that if there was a reason that we had to have the car open, we would not lose one on the highway.

When we first got here, they weren't sure that they wanted to live in a house again. They seemed to almost be disturbed by so much space. Hee hee.

We finally got our cable and internet installed today so I figured that I should at least check in and say hello and thank you's. It's kinda strange living in a small town again. It's been several years since I didn't live in a real city, so the first couple of days took some getting used to. But I'm finally getting settled into a routine kind of.

And couchtater, we are kind of neighbors...but I'm more in the western part of the state. I'm about 20 miles to the east of Columbia. In an itty bitty town. lol. Small enough that they weren't sure how to finish hooking up all the stuff for the internet. I had to walk the tech through some of the steps since no one else in this immediate area is online. But hey, at least I'm getting great speed for cheap since there's no network traffic here. :D

Anyway...again, thank you all and I'll be back online with a regular vengeance again, starting tomorrow. For tonight, I'm done for today. The time change is still something that I'm adjusting to.

Thank you everyone...
Lacey

Lacey, I looked on a map and figured your about two hours drive from my house. I'm straight across from you on the GA side on the other side of the lake.

Those silly cats. They'll get used to the new area and so will you. :)

Good night.

Lacey,
I can't believe you posted tonight! But it was great to hear you and your "family" made it. You had me chuckling about the cats in the van and then being unsure about the house. I seem to remember hearing somewhere a long time ago that if you move a cat to a new place to restrict it to one room until it gets adjusted, and then slowly let it get to know the rest of the house. I'll bet Bionic knows all about this!

Glad you're home!

Restricting them to one room is what we did the first day. I'm not too worried about the rest of the house cause they're strictly indoor cats. But they needed adjustment time.

Things are okay, I'm still not quite sure what to do with this much free time and not that much going on outside my door like when I lived in the city, but I'm making the adjustments.

It's time that I drag out some coffee and start getting moving today. Thanks again everyone.

Lacey,
I restrict my kitties to one room when I'm gone, but they have a water fountain and their liter boxes in that
room along with play toys a a bed to jump on and a window to sit in, it's the 2nd biggest room in the house
and it's our bedroom..they are very safe in that room, cats don't mind the room size, just make sure to
play with them and let them out once in awhile, it'll help them to adjust...
Hope your getting a low pain day...
lots of soft hugz..

Lacey, Wow, I though I drove far w/ cats! I'm glad to hear Y'all made it safe and sound! Are you off of Rt.#26? I just drove across that road 3 times in the last month! I'm sure you will like it there, it's a beutiful area and not far from the Mts. and Ocean! Good luck w/ settling in!
Big Hugz,

Sorry it took me so long to get back. Been busy trying to get this house in order and I've been falling into bed every night. Yesterday we spent most of the day trying to clear some of the brush and start gathering firewood from the trees out back. I've hardly had time to be online since getting here. But pretty soon it will start coming together.

Pete, I'm actually between I-77 and I-73. I-73 south turns into US Hwy 1 which runs right through this town before it goes west into Columbia. I'm looking forward to it getting back onto summer cause I really would like to see the beaches here. I've always been on the west coast and have never gotten out this way. But for now, I've been settling for staring at the Lake here.

The edit is coming around cause I just looked at the map to see more of what's around here and just realized that I'm about 5 miles north of Ft Jackson if that gives you a better idea of where I'm at.

Piercings,
Take your time on getting everything done, don't want you overdoing things...Winter is a good moving in time as you can take your time on getting things
in place, don't forget to stock up on hot cocoa and teas for those cool nights...
good luck in the new home....
