***NEWS FLASH*** Boston Manor Prepares for Departure of Maven and Successfully Relaunches Her Back to Her Apartment!

The last three days have been a mix of relief, happiness, some tears and then joy as we have prepared to move The Maven back to her apartment and as she settles in with her feline children and a few pieces of furniture from Mom and Dad's house that would have needed to be stored as the result of our next move. (Forgive the run on sentence, I'm slightly excited)

But First.
An IKEA nightstand needed assembling and all hands were on deck.

Some were supervising.

Others carefully laid out each part and read the directions.

And then goofed off.

And others inspected and criticized.

And judged.

Finally it was finished with the help of many paws and hands.

Mr. Tennis rented a trailer and we transported the brown sectional couch from our living room and a dresser to the Maven's studio which she rents from her brother and SIL, The Writer and Sammy.

There were skeptics amongst us who felt that neither would fit even though I had measured carefully and had envisioned this in my head for a long time.

The skeptics were wrong.
I was right.

Heh heh! Why do they even try to challenge my visions?!?

The Maven is back to her old/new studio and will have a pretty full week of "stuff to do" before returning to work in about ten days.

May I have a collective "AMEN"?

AMEN!!! This is such great news! and kudos to the Maven for getting that nightstand put together despite the snoopervisers and their assistance. High five, too, on your vision for the couch!!
I know the Maven will be busy and happy now that she is healed and returning to her life!!
Hugs all around!

YAEH ! Big things happened. Are things going to get boring at the MANOR without Darcy & Dexter ? Great news and we can now go on to the next great adventure. Tape measures ~ note pads and figuring out where things go next !

I'm so glad that she is able to return to her home, and she gets some new furniture in the bargain also.

Cute shots of kitties on the table, lol.

I know Maven is glad to return home. What an eventful journey. I know you love her to bits and are glad she is back to her independent self.

AMEN AMEN. Good job on making the couch fit, It makes for a cozy sitting corner. Lots to adjustments for The Maven, and lots of little things to get done. The moral support from Bro, SIL and kitties will be great help.
