Back to the future

The moving crew arrived yesterday morning about 7:30, following two full days of packing, and worked like dogs wrapping furniture

and loading the van. I tried not to freak out too much during three days of strangers in my house touching my stuff….

and then John and I spent the next four hours cleaning, mopping, vacuuming, packing, closing windows, locking doors and emptying the refrigerator in order to get a head start so we wouldn’t have to battle rush hour this morning.

First we had to stop at the grocery store for ice, block and dry, for the coolers because you don’t leave behind homemade meatballs or John’s pulled pork.

We spent the night in Colorado Springs and made it to Wichita Falls, Texas, today. Colorado is so pretty to drive through, New Mexico is interesting to drive through and west Texas is boring to drive through, as you will see from the following pictures. I wanted to get photos of downtown Denver on our way out, but since it was after 9:00 p.m., that wasn’t going to happen.

    Glad you made it ok. We were thinking of you and how exhausted you must be. Hope you have had a chance to take a breath before you dig in again. You won’t be missing our cold weather coming next Monday!!!!
