Count Down to Move ... Day 5 (Elusive Sleep)
I have no idea why I'm still awake at 2:30 AM early Monday morning! Most of the previous evening was spent wrapping and packaging large framed pictures and packing a bit more of the kitchen. I've only been up since 4:30 AM (the old time) when my youngest decided it was time to get up. Then, too, I began packing. We do have a deadline of Saturday to be out of here. This is not an easy task for a family of five to empty out a 3100 square foot home and make it sparkle. Must be adrenaline kicking in as I haven't had any coffee since early afternoon. Dh was doing a little figuring the other day and discovered we have four cars and only three drivers! Brilliant deduction ... one we almost overlooked. You see, we were hoping to sell our 65 GTO before the move, but that has not happened to date. We've had several "interested" parties ... one that was probably an overseas scam artist ... so to remedy the situation, dh drove the muscle car to his mom's house for temporary storage in her garage. As soon as he returns from our move up north, he will drive the car to a friend's classic car showroom and try to sell it. The car really is in remarkedly great condition ... even has original interior seats ... no tears or marks. It's fun to drive ... grrrrr.
