Can’t we get weekends off? Shouldn’t there be some rule about mandatory breaks?
I’m not sure who woke up first Rita or Vince. I am sure it was not me! 5:30! Vince got up and thought he could sneak out without Rita noticing but I heard her squirming around in her little bed so I got up with her. I did tell Vince I was not starting to pack til daylight. We’re still working in the sewing room. Another thing that slows me down is stopping to look at everything. I have an apple cake recipe that someone gave me when we lived in Jasper, TX and we moved from there in 1992. It’s the best cake and I’ve made a dozen or more copies of it so I never lose it and I find a copy in every drawer I open. Vince was finding them too. He said “Are these recipes all the exact same?” Yes! Then he said “Do you need to keep all of them?” Yes! He’s past the point of asking why.
The freeze dryer was going to be done about 7:30 a.m. so I told Vince I was going to sit and knit til time to deal with it, then I’d put the okra in jars, vacuum seal those and start packing. We’ve packed almost a couple of hours and just stopped for breakfast.
I think the unpacking is going to be pretty easy. Not easy . . but not really crazy. Nicole and Chad will come over and help some . . probably more Nicole than Chad.
The movers have a 40′ truck, which is as big as we can get down our driveway and even then, he has to back it down there because there’s no way to turn it around. We’ll also use a 26′ U-Haul. The first trip will be sewing room and stuff out of the house. Then they’ll make a second trip probably between Thanskgiving and Christmas and that will be Vince’s shop and all the outside stuff.
We have a plan . . let’s just hope it all works like we think it will.
