For a bit (well, more than just a bit), I had my doubts. But, it is really going to happen. Tomorrow, Mom and Daddy and I head to Ohio.
The mover showed up this morning just like he said he would. Definitely, a pleasant surprise to see him when he said he'd be there. He packed from 8:35 AM to about 2:30 PM. Then, he left to go get helpers. He was gone longer than I expected so I was getting a little worried. Then, he showed up with four helpers who got to work carrying boxes out of the house and loading them onto the truck.
I think they closed the door of the truck around 8:30 PM or so. Couldn't get anymore on it. There is some stuff left in the house, Daddy's workshop, and on the back patio but he will get all of it early this week on a smaller truck. He plans to deliver both trucks to Ohio either Wednesday or Thursday.
This has been so difficult for both Mom and Daddy. Both have lost weight and are stressed to the max. They've handled it like troopers, though. I believe once we get to Ohio, it will be better. Mom is excited to settle in. Daddy is a little more hesitant. I think both of them will love it and I know we'll enjoy being in such close proximity to each other. They'll be only 13 miles from me.
I can't wait to have them close-by. I've missed them each and every day since I moved away. I also feel a great sense of relief to have the house in Virginia all packed up and up for sale.
They're arriving at a wonderful time. All the Christmas festivities begin next weekend. Waynesville will have lots going on and Lebanon's Horse and Carriage Parade is next Saturday, December 7th.
Now, I'm off to bed ---- I'm exhausted!
Please keep us in your thoughts tomorrow as we leave our hometown and head to Ohio!
