How can a 7 hour trip from Claremore, OK to Brownwood, TX seem so darned long? We made it to Brownwood about 4:30 p.m. today and went straight to Sears to look for a fridge. I’ll post about that later. We’re in the hotel for a few days. Hopefully we’ll get the keys to the rental tomorrow and I can see my new home! The mover may even arrive tomorrow but I’ll be surprised if he does.
Before leaving MO, we managed to fill up the 30 yard dumpster.
We gave away so much stuff too. And, what was left barely all fit on the moving van. But, it fit and that’s better than what happened when we left KY. Friday I kept asking the driver . . is it all going to fit? He kept saying . . it’s too soon to tell. Finally I realized that he wasn’t going to give me an answer til the last box was on that truck. Speck and I got on the road a couple of hours before they finished but Vince stayed and called and told me they got everything on but it was only because of what we threw in the dumpster and the stuff we gave away.
Our realtor came by on Friday and she said she fully expected to see at least three moving vans there. Nope . . we got it all on one van and you can bet that for the next six months, I’m going to be doing everything I can do to get rid of the things I don’t need. Actually, once all my sewing stuff – fabric, machines, batting — everything sewing related, and all the food and canned goods and wheat in buckets and all the furniture was on the truck, it was only half full. I think I did real good getting rid of things I didn’t need. I gave away 4 sewing machines, some batting I will never use, some fabric I will never use . . I’m really never buying anything else I don’t need. Can I convince my dear husband to make that same commitment??
