The Week Is Finally Here

Well, the week I have been looking forward to and dreading is finally here.   It looks like we will be moving from here:

to here:

My grand-kids and I will be going up to the new place on Monday to meet the phone installers and dish people.  We will also be doing the final cleaning and moving all the tools and extra equipment out and making room for the full move on Thanksgiving Day.  Our T day will be held at the Waffle House in our new community of Commerce, GA.   Yep, I have a whole new crew of servers to whip into shape so I can get my hugs and kisses when I do my ‘Norm’ entrance.

Also, I will be there when the installers arrive to hang the garage door.  My stepson, Steven, enclosed all the extra space and only needs the door installed to be finished with that part of the house.  Judy and I have some small stuff to do in our basement, but it can be done after we move in. 

But we won’t be able to just relax and enjoy the new digs, though.  We still have to touch up the old house and get it on the market (pray for a quick sale, thank you very much.)  That is a hundred mile one way trip.  Plus I am still working with David and his pending back surgery.  So I will be spending bookoo (the Southern translation of the French ‘beaucoup’ – but French is not allowed in this household) time and dollars on gas for the next few months.

And speaking of time on the road.  I have been contracted by the Cobb County Animal Control to make a transport run with 14 dogs and 4 cats to…get this…Minneapolis, MN.  The trip is scheduled for Dec 10th.  Pray for a heat wave up that way.  Eighteen hours one way is enough without adding in snow and ice.  My fingers are crossed.

That’s about it for today.  I’ll try to throw in some sexist, demeaning jokes tonight or tomorrow just so you will know I am around and thinking of ya.  Don’t know how much time I will have, but I will give it a shot.

Later, peeps.

See, now I'm tired, and I only read about it!

Happy Thanksgiving CP. I'm hoping mine won't be spoiled by midnight ninjas.

I can picture you being greeted with adoration at the Waffle House. Coffey!

Minnesota in December?! Have you lost your mind???? Oh yaaaaaah, hey? You're a rock star for helping the animals! And I hope that your house sells quickly - it's gorgeous.

I detest moving. I prefer the light a match and file a claim strategy.

Enjoy Waffle House, friend! Do they have bananas there?
