Last call

This is it, the night before the 'little move.'  For the next month we will be living between two houses: our old house here, and the park residence.  The residence has no tv, internet, phone, appliances, furniture.  We'll be sleeping on mattresses on the floor, keeping milk in a dormitory refrigerator, and cooking in a crockpot, hot plate, George Foreman grill, or over an open fire.  I'm just glad it's got modern plumbing.  We'll be coming back to the old house when we can, to continue packing and to do laundry.

The 'big move' will be the first week of October, if all the paperwork goes through okay.  I am trying to keep on top of things, but it is a losing battle.  I had to drive four hours round-trip today to drop of a check for earnest money on the new house.  I swore I mailed that check last week.  Apparently I didn't.

We are still madly packing, packing, packing.  The dust we are kicking up, excavating corners that haven't been disturbed in years, is making everyone sneeze and snortle.  We leave after breakfast tomorrow.  We'll see how much sleep I get tonight.

I shouldn't have sat down at the computer.  This sitting-down thing is pretty awesome.  Not sure if I can get back up again.

Good luck! Hope to see you back online after the move and maybe with some pictures of the new place?!

I hope the move goes well for you. Sounds like it'll be something of an adventure living that way for a while.

Ooof! The next month won't be much fun, but you know it will go by quickly. Then you can get on with your new life which sounds kinda exciting! I'm eager to see pictures of the new place, too. Hang in there for just one more month, Jo. I'll be thinking of you.

I'll be thinking of you this month, and praying that everything goes smoothly for you!
