Well, the time has come - we have a date to move - Friday and Saturday December 28th & 29th. Lots will be moved over before those dates but the big move with the big pieces requiring help will take place as mentioned above. We will pick up the U-Haul on Friday and some young strong guys will come over around 4:00 and load up the truck - everything but our box spring & mattress and a few essentials for morning coffee and clean up. On Saturday morning more young men will help us load the bed and then we will head on over to our new place and unload it all.
This is the plan barring any glitches...none are expected but even if there is a glitch in a closing date etc. we are still moving since it is freaking time and I/we cannot do this limbo here and there life any longer. Nope, Enough! Ya know?
We call our new home "The Bungalow" - it is cozy and quaint and homey and easy to manage and maintain. I promise pictures once we are settled in.
Also, we are shutting down my computer, internet, phones and cable on Wednesday the 26th of December so we can have all the components at our new place for the Cable guy to set us all up on Thursday. I probably wont be back on line until New Years Day or so.
We are taking time to gather for Christmas Eve as a family - honoring our Mom and carrying on time honored traditions - specialty food items and activities - and Christmas Day we will have our lovely traditional brunch of "everything bagels-smoked salmon- cream cheese - fresh fruit and poppy seed rolls ( a sweet delight my Mom made every year)...coffee and orange juice too.
