Moving (with Buddhas)

March 28, 2013

After weeks of kvetching, whining, complaining, bemoaning, touting, I am finally moved! A marathon day–the devil, as they say, is in the details, and if you can characterize old checkbooks, bills and mail of several people, bits and pieces of clothing (of several people), bottles of vinegar, oil, assorted dishes, shoes, papers, sheets, towels, miscellaneous old computers and chargers of several decades (and last couch and a bunch of teeny tables and chairs and who knows what) as details, there were a lot of devils to deal with!

My husband and a friend of my daughters were heroes. U-Haul (which called me yesterday in the middle of an important work meeting to tell me the only truck that it had available for our confirmed reservation was the wrong size and also had to be picked up someplace in the Bronx) was a villain.

Did I ever mention that living in Manhattan for many years can make you quite fearful of driving, especially after dark? But I am no longer living in Manhattan (as of today), and with two Buddhas and Pearl in the car (hubbie driving non-U-haul truck) I somehow managed.

A moment to thank all of you for your support through this endless process. Thanks for all your pre-congratulations! (Based on my partial move about a month ago.) I truly appreciate your kindness, not just about the move but on so many levels.
