Moving Day

The movers arrive today. Daughter has an appointment with Therapist at 9:00. I need to stop by the bank when we're in town. PA is coming to the house in case we don't get back before the movers arrive. Am I ready for the movers? Of course not. Everything has taken longer than I anticipated. I woke up at 4:00 this morning, and gave up on the idea of going back to sleep at 5:15.
We will be moved. I will have to finish sorting and getting rid of things when we arrive in Capital. I have no idea how long it will take the movers to pack and load us up. I do know that the next few days will be busy, and stressful. I've had a stiff neck that has been getting progressively worst. I don't anticipate it getting better any time soon.
Yesterday someone asked me why I didn't want a farewell dinner next week. I wasn't offered a farewell dinner. The board thought a reception would be more than enough. It's not that I want a dinner, but I am frustrated that I am being portrayed as rejecting what was offered instead of the board being portrayed as unwilling to do more than a reception. I've only been here 14 years. Why would it take more than a coffee hour to say goodbye? All this does is confirm that it's time to leave, and it makes me more grateful for the warm welcome I am being offered by Capital. I can't wait to get there and see our freshly painted and cleaned house. It will be wonderful.
My phone/TV/internet installation is scheduled for a week from today in Capital. I'll try to get on occasionally, but I probably won't be posting regularly for the next week or so.

Take deep breaths and try to relax! It will be over soon, and you'll be able to settle in and start your new life. I wish you strength and peace.

Thanks, Marge. It's going to be a challenging few days, and I will be so grateful when we've put the move behind us. I've decided that October 4 is the day our stress will begin to shrink.
