Jenny asked yesterday on FB what our plan is for the move. Of course, plans around here are in a constant state of flux and did not originally include a) the clutch dying on our car on Tuesday, or b) me coming down with some kind of insane sinus condition on Sunday, or c) weather hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk.
Nevertheless! We press onward with tentative planning because we are homo sapiens and planning is what separates us from the apes. So here's the plan:
We will pick up the U-Haul truck on Sunday, early afternoon. Packing starts at 3 (with lotsalotsa help from friends and church family, right guys????). Rumor has it that a good friend is planning to feed everyone afterwards and give us a chance to say our last goodbyes. We'll camp out in the house Sunday night, tying up all the loose ends early Monday in time for the final walk-through. Closing is Monday at four, after which we'll head South! First stop off in Lynchburg to say our goodbyes to J's parents. Then to Danville to spend the night with my parents. Tuesday, on to South Carolina and J's grandparents. Wednesday, we spend the night in a hotel in Lake Mary, a short distance from our final destination of Winter Park.
We'll arrive at our new, but temporary home at Sorrento Apartments in Winter Park early-ish on Thursday morning, unload the truck (with help from our new Florida Friends) and take a nice long SWIM!!!
Long-term plans include frantic house-hunting in an attempt to be in a permanent place before Jamie makes his debut, but that's in the Lord's hands and we really have NO idea of the timing on all that.
So there you have it, in a nutshell, our tentative plans for The Big Move. Stay tuned to hear all the last- minute revisions and scrambling...
