It’s Nice To Be Needed
I spent Friday and Saturday helping to move our daughter from one apartment to another. She actually moved on her own power, it was all her belongings that required my assistance. Jennie did all the packing and I basically showed up for the heavy lifting. It’s nice to be needed. On Friday we drove over a couple loads to her new place. It was approaching 90 degrees and the humidity was about as high. Thankfully there was a nice breeze right before the tornado warnings and the torrential downpour. And the hail. We made it inside just in time and had a radio so we knew when it was safe to resume the moving, but in case you ever visit Jennie during a tornado, the best place to hide is in her bedroom closet. Move the shoes.
On Saturday Steve came up to help with the U-Haul. Actually, it was a He-Haul becase neither Jennie nor I had any desire to drive it. Some of Jen’s friends from work came to help too and they let me boss them around which was way fun.
Max, Jennie, and Jason are relaxing in anticipation of the He-Haul truck.
Max, Kari, Jennie, and Jason (top row); Amy and Joel (bottom row) were really sweet to strike a pose after the truck was loaded. Not only did they help unpack the truck, but they helped put Jen’s stuff away too. Steve and I left for home to drain the dog (Madison had to stay home) while they were connecting electronic components I couldn’t even identify. It was most impressive.
This morning I discovered muscles I didn’t even know I had. Yesterday I pretended to be young. It was fun.
