I am here to say hello for just a few minutes
to give you a moving update an it’s not pretty!
I took a few pics with my iPhone as my camera is in a box!
Did I tell you that we waited too long to book the movers
and all we could get was 4 hours, when we really need 4 days!!
So we are renting a U-Haul two days here, two days there
when we can gather friends and family to help us out ….
We are taking things over to the Berry Patch House
via van, car, my son’s truck and U-Haul…and then the professional moving company
will be here Thursday to move the super heavy pieces of furniture….
and exercise equipment.
In the meantime, I use things like these baskets to tote things over to the house…
I have packed hundred of boxes and totes.
Our friends Merry and Steve drove three hours from their house to ours this past
weekend to help out. Good thing my “Boys of Summer” are in great physical shape.
With this move, I can honestly say and will be backed up by my friends,
that I am a borderline hoarder…or is it that I am way too sentimental,
saving things that mean something to me and having a hard time of letting go.
I hope to think that I lean toward that sentimental type of gal!!!
So I am learning to let go …. trash …. giveaway.
OK!!!…time to let go of the Millennium Champagne bottles?
Oh and I found an unopened blank Video Cassette tape … seriously! ….
anyone still have a VCR player?
But it does feel good when you are down to the last shelf in the kitchen
that needs to be packed up….but there are 100 shelves to go throughout the house!
My friend, Sherri actually packed up these champagne flutes for me.
The next day, there was a knock on the door and there she was with dinner in hand!
And she is coming back tomorrow….talk about a glutton for punishment.
I will be a bit absent in the next week with the push to move and the closing
and the day after closing on the house we leave for another “Boys of Summer”
tournament in Georgia….I will drive to Georgia with my hubby; however,
I will leave the next day to pick up my mom and bring her back to N.C. so she can
see my Sweetie perform in her Univ of NC Glee Camp program where she will have a solo
performance among others…..my hubby will be hitching a ride home with friends.
I must say that there have been beautiful days this week in the 70’s.
I will truly, truly miss the neighborhood and my wonderful neighbors!
My mom will be staying with me at the rental house, a.k.a. Berry Patch House
for a week . . . she can help me unpack! … Stay tuned for me and my mom!
Back to packing …. It is truly harder now to:
Keep Calm and Pack On! …. but I am trying!
Have a most beautiful week ahead . . . see you soon!
