Sam and Brandy and Amy’s Moving Days

I emailed this to some folks yesterday, but thought I would post it as well. :-)

Hi all! A bunch of you have asked lately, and many more of you haven’t, but just thought I would update you all and beg for a little help. The update is for everyone. The plea for help is really only for the people who live near me, although some from farther away have offered help and would be most welcome.

Anyway, the update first… I’m on my last week in Florida before Brandy, Amy and I actually MOVE to Florida. I fly back up Friday. Then it is packing packing packing. Which goes into 100% mode after Amy’s school finishes on Tuesday. After much debate, we decided to go the UHaul route again instead of professional movers. Saves a bunch of cash which we can use on other things. So over the weekend we’ll be loading up the truck, then Monday morning we’ll drive the truck full of stuff, plus one of Brandy’s cars full of pets down to Florida.

Then probably one last trip to PA on the 30th to actually sign all the papers to close on the house and possibly bring back Brandy’s backup car. Then we will be Floridians!!!

The job is going great and all that too. :-) A tree in the back yard of the house we are staying in did fall over on Sunday, but it didn’t hit the house, so we still have a place to stay. Yea! :-) In general, things are going well, and slowly falling into place down here. As the final move approaches things are getting more and more hectic and stressful, but hey, that is part of the process.

OK, now the plea. Yup, helping us load the truck and stuff. Those of you who have helped me move in the past will recoil in horror. (See the story of Putrid Rotting Fruit.) But Brandy has tamed me somewhat, and there won’t be live bugs this time. Well… probably some crickets for my lizard to eat. :-) And I’ve actually thrown away a lot of junk! Promise! Anyway, those of you far away obviously can’t come to help us load the truck, but anybody close by who is willing and able, we would much appreciate added hands to get everything loaded. (Hopefully everything will be packed by then.) We’ll provide food, refreshing beverages and entertainment!

We’ll be doing the truck loading Saturday the 19th. (Picking the truck up in the morning, loading in the afternoon.) If we don’t finish the 19th, we’ll continue on Sunday the 20th. But the 19th should be the big day. Once we’re all done, we’ll be ready to hit the road at the next opportune moment.

The big loading day is a week from Saturday. If anybody thinks they can come, please let me know via email. We appreciate all the help we can get. Once we get to the Florida end, I expect we’ll be doing it by ourselves. Don’t know anybody well enough yet down here to beg for help. :-)

Anyway, thanks in advance! We appreciate it!
