Bound 4 Kentucky!

I thought I'd post a few quick lines while the postin' is good. My internet access has been limited for the past week and time has been even more limited. The house is empty, save a few personal items and cleaning supplies. We had so much help loading the truck last night! People running every which way, grabbing everything in sight - including a few things that were supposed to stay behind! I managed to hold things together fairly well in the emotions department with a few minor exceptions - like when my Junque Syster got in her car to drive away, when my Sister at Heart got ready to walk out the door and when our good friends Jim and Janet left. I allowed myself only one major meltdown (last nite at least). Closing went off without a hitch. It's the first time I've ever been on the selling side of the table.

Well, I've got a little more sprucing up, and one more look through the cabinets to do, then we're off to spend the night with friends and by first light tomorrow morning we should officially be

KENTUCKY BOUND!
LET THE JOURNEY BEGIN!

Hi Liz -
My prayers will continue as you travel to your new home. It's hard to believe that it's already time to say goodbye in one place and hello in another. May God meet every need you have along the way and at journey's end, dear friend. I'll miss you until we hear from you again! Can't wait to hear all about it.
