Wednesday night. Whew — it’s been an absolutely crazy week! But, thanks be to God, we have in one week’s time gotten moved out of our NY apartment, flown to Atlanta (arriving at the condo at 1:30 am), plowed through the closets and cabinets to make room for the arrival of “stuff” coming from NY, made several trips to Goodwill to donate lots of “stuff”, received the NY shipment on Monday, unpacked lots of boxes, repacked several boxes to take “stuff” with us to NC, and did our best to achieve a preliminary state of organization before leaving in an overly-packed vehicle this evening, heading east. Our plan is to spend a few days at the beach over the Fourth weekend. The kids and Jim’s mom & sister are planning to join us there, also. Scout is wedged into a tiny spot in the back of our SUV, not uttering a whimper of complaint. I think she knows where we’re going — her favorite place!
Oh, by the way, Rob’s birthday dinner was very enjoyable, but Mema’s 12-layer cake was tops!
So, my next update will hopefully be written by a more rested version of myself, sitting on our deck at Wrightsville Beach, enjoying a salty-sweet, unique-to-the-coast, ocean breeze…..
