One has been a huge help with both the extra work and general morale. It's fortunate that he has been able to help.
This 26' U-haul (expertly packed) held maybe half of our stuff. Two spent the day with us in Alabama throwing things out. Her ability to be decisive about what is no longer needed was ruthless and quite impressive. It seems that while I really like less stuff around in general, it's hard for me to just throw something out that seems like it might be still useful for someone else. There wasn't enough time to get organized for a Goodwill pickup. Maybe the "stuff" was moved in to the garage for a later pickup ... I do not know ... I can't even keep up with the charger to my fitbit right now. Tomorrow (Sunday) we will drive back over there and finish a few odd jobs for the house and finish clearing everything out. Sammy and the cat's will stay here with One looking out for them.

My Debbie called a few times ... here is her answer for what's for dinner. At some point on these back and forth trips all you really want to be there. I think life gets like that. Moving is exhausting work. I honestly am so tired that I could cry ... and I have bruises and broken fingernails ... and just general uck.

a bit of a blur like everything else

weird how one gets a set axis to sleep align ...
|I had coffee in the go bag, but sadly ... no press!|
Coffee for me, breakfast tacos for the kids and Larry.

Corp is doing a controlled release. Lotsa recreational activity along here.
|River at our yard ... there is a Heron or crane nesting right along here|
I've seen her only from the patio - she is magnificent! Larry saw her land at her nest.
I'm really looking forward to that. I want to put some chairs down on the water's edge.

Deer are frequently on that lower level.
