Empty Nest!

Whew! Moving is tough! Like childbirth, you simply forget. For 2 1/2 weeks I packed and packed and packed. Almost everyday dear friends popped into help. They made it fun! They tried to help organize my move. Making all kinds of suggestions. However, in the end most boxes contained a random assortment... a lampshade, 3 large platters, an electric griddle, 2 pillows and a birds nest! We got tickled and laughed at the thought of unpacking. Last Thursday, Mr. DeLaRosa, sent 5 of his men to Abilene to load up our household. These patient men did a great job! Arriving at 8:30 am and gone by 1:30 am, I was left standing in amazment, in an empty house.

Thank you, Dianne, Boots, Susan, Jo Carol and Mary! You lightened my load and sweetened my bittersweet days.

After the trucks were gone I gathered up the leftover items and had a final garage sale.

With a lump in my throat, tears in my eyes, and an empty place in my heart I wish you the very best.
I love you and shall miss you terribly... Gina

You know how I feel....I love you dearly and can't wait to visit you in Temple! By the way, packing was a blast and the sherbet/ginger ale floats were the best!!
