|That's me with the frizzy hair in the wagon... ;0)|
First of all, we got rid of a LOT of stuff before the move. It took five or more 26' trucks to move us five years ago; this time it took two 24' trucks and a just a smidgeon more that we'll haul over in a little pull-behind trailer in a couple of weeks.
(Please excuse the couple of incidents of language in this.... but it's just
so classic, this Carlin philosophy -- and so true.... couldn't resist posting it.)
Also making things much easier than expected, we had TONS of help. All the children ended up making appearances -- not all at the same time, but each of them at key times. Considering we expected none of the grown up youngins to be able to help, this was unexpected and wondrous! Their help was invaluable! And getting to see everyone was fabulous -- even under the circumstances.
Finally, through the prayers of many loved ones (you know who you are!) God's mercy and goodness seemed to have paved the way soft and smooth from Western Colorado, across Utah, Arizona, and most of Nevada to our new home in Las Vegas. For both truckload trips and all our helpers' commutes (notwithstanding Michelle's adventure getting stranded in a snowstorm on Vail Pass, from which she and her car both escaped unscathed...) We are very grateful!
Yes, He is good all the time. And Every where!
Pictures coming soon!
