We (My Family and I) have had a very full week. There have been birthdays, graduations, and more.
So let me update you…
On Wednesday 6/25/08 we got our packing trailer delivered for our migration to the mid-western region. So we spent all day packing this trailer. About 9:30pm we washed up and changed clothes so that we could go out to dinner and celebrate my first born child’s birthday! She turned 23 years old!! We took her Delmonico’s (simply fabulous steaks!!) and gave her some time to relax and unwind from her long day of packing! Besides the excellent steaks my daughter got a song and a free birthday canoli!
We spent all of Thursday packing also but finally got it done. We paid for certain amount of footage in the 28’ trailer but ended up using the ENTIRE trailer! Yes we used the whole 28 feet! So the company came and picked up the trailer on Friday morning and we stuck with the clean up of a partially empty house. Some things did not make the cut, or just plain could not fit on the truck so it went out for the trash man. We had crowds of people going through our garbage for 2 days, taking stuff!
So we spent some days in a house with no furniture and no stuff…Yea that was fun! [NOT!!!]
On Saturday my niece graduated from high school! WooHoo! It was originally supposed to be two nieces but my younger niece was three credits short and did not graduate. She was upset, but not totally heartbroken since she is a year ahead anyway. So she will only have to do 3 classes in
On Saturday after the graduation we spent the remainder of the day cleaning up and getting rid of the rest of the stuff in the house.
First thing Sunday morning we packed up the van (inside and out!) so that we could hit the road! We pulled out of
We drove through beautiful weather until we hit Ohio... and then not so beautiful weather. We were smacked with A LOT of rain in parts of
So we are now at a hotel in
Peace & Love!
