It's Official, for sure, maybe, OH HELL I GIVE UP!

OK!  So the slow wheels of lending institutions being what they are, I FINALLY signed the papers for the new Casa de Dodson.  I won't bore you with the details here.  I mean if I did that what would I have to write about in 5-6 pages to wear your already shot peepers with.  HUH??

SO.. I am getting ready to start moving, packing (OH MY GOD NOT PACKING!!).

See this is the part where we start thinking..  How much insurance do I have on my stuff?  If I left the windows and front door open and conveniently left for a few hours, just think of how little I would have left to pack.  INGENIOUS!!

This is the start of the Dodson Moving Method (trademark).  you to can have State Farm/Farmers/Bobs Insurance Shack pay for your move.  Why move your old crap when you can have a newly furnished home!!

And after 3-5 years, you can enjoy it with your spouse after you get out for good behavior and say good bye to Bubba who has been just like your spouse for those lonely years.

Where was I??   Oh yea, back to that moving thingy.

So here is the new address.

Derrick Dodson (and clan)
6325 Matterhorn Drive
Sacramento, Ca 95842

Please update your address book/contact list/piece of paper you dropped and is now stuck to the bottom of your shoe because you walked over some gum and now every time you take a step you hear this crunching noise under your foot that you can't really tell where it's coming from until your kid says daddy what is that on your foot.

This way your letter/postcard/packages/small children don't get lost in the mail because they would get hungry and possibly die and I really don't need that kind of pressure on my head wondering if I made it down to the post office in time before the oxygen runs out in their box.

OH, almost forgot.  I'm doing this little giveaway thing.  If you have a chance and would like to get in on the action.  The cut off is on July 4.

Just leave a comment here with your address.  or email to me as it will never reach me before the 4th.  The email address is on the Aboot Me page.

If you run a blog, I would appreciate the kind mention of the goodies on yours, if you don't mind.

Well, I'm off to figure out if I can legally run a fire sale.  I mean hey, it's the 4th of July.  I have plenty of fire extinguishers  what could possibly go wrong.


  1. Moving CAN be fun. Finding new ways to store/display your stuff. We moved 3 years ago and are still unpacking.

    1. There in lies the problem. I really don't want to be unpacking 3 years later. We have an advantage of taking the move slow (we have 30 days) to literally move stuff over and put it away. If it don't fit - OUT IT GOES.

  2. When I uprooted my family for me to finish teacher training, we ended moving 3 times in two years ( ugh ), and by the time we were finished, there were things we left in storage that we completely forgot we even had. Since we didn't miss them, most of it ended up going to goodwill. It made the decision so much easier. I hope that you adventure is uneventful. I've got mail for you ( a rather late response from March - sorry), but it won't make it for the the July 4th deadline, so if you are interested in adding me for your next mailing, the destination is:
    Stewart Charlebois
    72 - 20350 68 Ave
    Langley, BC V2Y 3A5

    1. All I needed was the comment and address :) thanks for the incoming!

  3. No, moving is not fun. I do sometimes think it would be nice to back a big moving truck up to my house, fill it with stuff and send it away, never to be seen again. Poeple like us, with lots of interests, tend to accumulate cool stuff.
