Clearing the air

Clearing the air:

I’ve gotten this same question from a few perplexed readers so let me answer those here. Yes, that was a big moving truck, er um semi, and yes I moved out of  2200 sq.feet of house in downtown Macon. BUT, that semi was not only full of my household goods, but 6 other households as well. I did however have almost 300 numbered items that included boxes and furniture. My brother and his lovely family were able to take a lot of our inherited antiques to fill and decorate their new home in Macon. Yes, I do have a lot of stuff but remember that not only was it  household items that I moved, but my office and studio equipment as well.

Here is a shot of the truck crossing the bridge into the ranch that dad wanted to see. He wasn’t sure it was going to happen but doggone it, Terrell got it through. And the bridge was the least of their concerns.

I have to give a shout out to my girl Terri for the back breaking packing and organizing she helped with on my birthday weekend. Thank you to Tabitha and Stephanie for their help keeping me sane at the very end. How are the plants Steph and Ken? Dad was going to kill me if I tried to stuff one more thing into the Honda for the ride out here.

I’m still unpacking.

    well, well, paint me pastel and call me an egg! i’ll bet you could hide many an egg in all the business on that truck!!! now, get to readin’ those books… we had fun packin’, even though it was quite the job. i miss Matilda already! i am glad we got to cuddle one last time for a while before the big move.

    we had 94 degree weather on easter sunday, and thought it was summer already in South Georgia! nothing like sweating in the easter egg dye, and watering it down. thankfully, i took my wind machine, because Daddy can’t be trusted with the thermostat. we saw many baby cows on my ride down, and thought of you guys.

    love you!
