Yesterday when we came home we realized for the first time that we were now living in someone else’s house and we must be careful to take care of it. Not that we were not careful of our home because we were but now it was not ours, it belong to some one else. So we started packing up faster and moving more out to the porch. The forecast called for a 60% chance of rain and we really need rain so we kept the tarps handy incase it began to rain and blow hard, but the only rain that came was about 1/8 inch of rain and all that came straight down so no tarps were needed. At 9 a.m. Norman, Joe and Laura were in Cookville, TN picking up the Budget truck, Sally, the dog and I were here at home packing up the kitchen and getting dinner started. As soon as they got home they began loading up the truck. Joe is taking most of our large furniture and a lot of the small stuff that we have doubles or triples of. We are going from three fully equipped kitchens down to just one so we did a pretty good job of filling the truck up. Then right after dinner Joe drove the truck and Laura drove their car back down to Athens , AL and Norman and I stayed here doing the dishes and packing some more. Tonight we are camping out in our house. There isn’t much furniture left but we are comfortable and things are normal.
The living room is full of boxes and items to put into the truck tomorrow, we aren’t watching TV tonight and that in itself is refreshing. As you see we are listening to the radio and loving it. This takes us back to a long past when radio was the entertainment for the whole family. I wish we had the will to do this for a long time but a more up to date form of living is just too easy so I will have to just enjoy it for these two days and then go back to the rush after that. Going to bed early because we will be up early tomorrow, Norman will pack the truck with Joe and Laura and I will cook the finger food for us the take on Friday’s long trip to Florida. Have a great day.
