It was Thursday – 6-25-20 – almost 4 PM. – we had to stop at Harris Teeter.
That was the moment Sherry got the text!
From our real estate rep.
” THE BUYERS WANTED TO DO THE WALK THROUGH AT 9:30 AM.”
Instead of Monday – it would be the next day!
We had less than 17 1/2 hours!
Now did we panic – I did but my stable other half
remained cool – calm and collected!
“Okay – we will do this – and by 8:00 AM. – we will be done”!
That is when we went into over drive!
We had just made our next to last trip to our daughters house.
Taking most of our clothes – shoes etc.
We knew we had one more trip to the storage unit.
The final load would be our day to day things.
That – I had hoped – would take one trip!
The biggest problem – it was our wedding day – 38 years ago!
And we had planned to go out for the first time in 103 days!
A actual sit down dinner – as we are now able to do that!
Well – we shall see – but first – we can do this!
And then if we have time – we will go she said!
And we did it! We finished packing up !
Loaded the car and made that final trip to the storage unit!
She texted our daughter – we will be staying Friday night
instead of Sunday night!
Now it is around 2:45 am. I woke up –
after a little over five hours of sleep!
I am down stairs – first cup of coffee done.
I look around – we will strip the bed – and pack the car.
Then – the final clean.
It will be done by 8:30 am.
And we will be on our way to our daughters house!
Oh – I forgot to mention – I had to mow the lawn!
My plan had been to do it Thursday evening and it was long
with all the rain and hot sunny days! DONE!!!
This will be my last blog from our home.
The house will be empty except what they purchased
plus numerous other household goods we left.
Another chapter has come to a close – the book remains.
We are living as my blog reads –
Only – she has stabled my life – cool – calm & collected!
Thank you for reading Papa’s World.
WHERE FRIENDS MEET THE FAMILY!
