The Unending Process of Moving

We have been in the process of moving for weeks. We spent Saturday getting a rental truck. The Penske dealer closed at noon on that day but we didn't need the truck until the next morning and didn't want to pay for an extra 24-hours. So we drove to Front Royal in the morning, did the paperwork and got the key, but waited until 6:30 PM to pick up the truck.

At quarter of nine the next morning, Amanda and Greg Miller showed up with a helper to load our furniture and boxes into the truck. They worked very hard but were not able to completely move us because the truck wasn't big enough! It was big, a 26-footer, but we have loads of stuff.

The good news is that we did get the furniture moved except for lawn furniture plus numerous boxes and a bunch of odd-shaped stuff. (Ever notice that when you pack boxes, your belongings seem to expand like foam insulation does? They just take up so much space, it's hard to believe.)

On Monday and Tuesday we went back to Basye in our own vehicles and loaded even more stuff. And yet there's till more. Nobody said moving would be easy!
