Moving Out!

I am reporting today from Raleigh, NC. It is overcast and dreary and my sinuses are giving me a fit. I can feel a trip to the CVS coming on. But enough about me. Chris and Julianne picked me up from the airport. My flight was actually a little bit early getting there. I had managed to get my luggage and was heading to the parking garage when the children met me in the hall. They were running just a little bit late because everyone is moving out of the dorms and traffic was horrendous on Hillsborough Street. Not that moving out day has to occur for the traffic to be horrendous, but we won't go into that today! Anyway, it was great to see them and we quickly exited the airport on our way back to Hillsborough Street.

Chris had to go to work, so Julianne and I got her car and headed to Target to get some boxes to store her "stuff" in. We made record time in the Target despite our inner longing to leisurely look at every item there. After checking out, we went to Panera Bread for lunch. Then we made our way back to her dorm after a quick detour at the Self Storage business. We rented a storage unit to house her "stuff" and bought a couple more cardboard boxes. Then we headed back to the dorm. Amazingly, we had everything packed up in about 2 hours. Nathan had his dad's truck and he was coming over to take Julianne out for dinner. So we enlisted him and Linley and their vehicles to help ferry all the boxes to the storage unit. And it went pretty smoothly. Thank you Nathan and Linley for your help!

We had hoped to have Chris meet us for dinner, but he was not able to get away. So we went out to dinner with Julianne and Nathan. Ju had to twist my arm to go cause I really didn't want to go to Bahama Breeze, but it was delish!!!!! And I think that Clay Aiken's twin brother was our waiter. I swear. Looked just like him.

I am washing washing washing washing washing washing washing washing washing washing washing washing washing washing washing washing washing washing washing washing washing washing washing washing clothes. It will probably be about that many loads. Maybe even more. Chris has dirty clothes and I don't think Julianne has washed clothes since she has been at college. I am just a wash woman. Among other things.

I am not sure what we have planned for today, but I know it will start with a trip to CVS. Maybe a nap or two also. Chris is working all day, so it will just be me, Ju and Linley. We have to rest up for the beach. Resting up to rest is very important.

I will talk to you later......Tootles!

Frannycakes aka "Wash woman",

This sounds like job security to me. Every time you report from Raleigh, you tell us about the mounds and mounds of laundry. Are you sure that all of this laundry belongs to your young adults? Maybe they are saving this special treat for you to make you feel needed.

Rest up for your vacation, you deserve it.
