Yup, I had a personal evacuation happen.

You know I'm a prepper.

I was negotiating to buy the house I was leasing... until that fell thrrough and I had to suddently move out.

In 9 days I found a new place, packed, moved, and then cleaned up the old property... The rain water collection system, the beans, bullets, band aids, tools, trade items, and live stock.


I'm totally exhausted.

    @Marjory Wildcraft 9 days! That must have been exhausting. I'm so glad that you were able to work it all out in the time frame. It is so great to have wonderful friends that jump in and help when things get overwhelming.

    @Marjory Wildcraft Amazing! What a challenge! I watched your video. I thought you couldn’t have managed without friends and family, but Wow. 9 days! By the way, you do not look exhausted on the video and the short hair fits you nicely. And the scar on the forehead looks like an opened third eye 😊

    congratulations on the new start.

    Thanks. I have spent the last two days just taking lots of naps. I'm glad I look better than I felt!

    Oh! and yes, I think I'm coming into the hair style tht fits best at this time in life. I've been experimenting for gosh, has it been a year?

    Ugh, I absolutely HATE high def cameras. That was clearly invented by men. 😉

    We couldn't move in 9 days. There is absolutely no way.

    I hope you enjoy the time at this place & find a more suitable place in the time frame you want.

    This is a good argument for keeping your life simple. The more stuff you have accumulated, the harder it is to move on short notice.

    I don't see how we could possibly move in 9 days. Maybe, if neither of us had a job at the time, we could pull it off.

    Nine days to move a well established and prepared life... especially with livestock. Amazing.

    And @jowitt.europe is right. You don't even look tired.

    I had one very fast unexpected move but it was much easier than yours. My first husband and I had only been married a few months we came home to find our landlords in our trailer going through things. We knew someone had been in before but had never caught anyone.

    Had to threaten them to get back tools that didn't even belong to us they were from hubby's place of employment.

    No packing just wrap stuff in clothes or bedding and cram it in the car. My parents had a small travel trailer we moved into until we could find a place. Moved in one day, but we had not accumulated much yet.

    Please let us know how things progress.

    Love your new babies.

    Oh my goodness. 9 days, not much time. That takes fast thoughts and plan development. Kudos to you for being successful. And, you cleaned up the old property after your move. We love you @Marjory Wildcraft
