No picture today...Just thoughts on this monumental move. It's a very physical thing. Having moved all over the world, as a corporate wife...it is usually a simple transition. Crews of packers come in and wrap every item in sight, and put them securely in large cardboard boxes to be delivered to you in your new home. I remember one move where we had had a dinner party the night before, and unbeknownst to me the packers rolled up the crescent rolls, still in the serving dish and packed them. I can assure you I was shocked when I unpacked them weeks later!...but, being retired this full service way of moving is something we don't want to pay for.
Ten years ago when we furnished our mountain home. We had professional packers load our furniture into a large rental truck,(mainly so it wouldn't shift around) and Tom drove it over a thousand miles and three mountain passes, with a brother in law as his sidekick....Me following in the car behind with my sister.
This move will be as follows: Tom and I will pack all the boxes,( me oh my). Then a moving company will load their truck and deliver the goods to a storage unit in Ft. Worth, where it will stay until we need it.Tom and I have leased a furnished duplex (built in 1929. It's a place with a lot of character...pictures to follow soon), where we will we live until we find what we are looking for.What we are looking for seems to change daily....more on that later.
I hope to keep this site running....with tidbits about this operation!....Please stay with me...Janey
