We have the last minute kitchen and bedding stuff and then WE ARE DONE COMPLETELY!!!

HooRay!!! John and I are both exhausted. We're going to look forward to a week of nothing to do but wait for our things to arrive.

The movers are sending a 30 ft. truck that has to come up the farm field next door to us. They said they'll take down trees if they try to come up the driveway. Then after loading us up they have to transfer everything to a 70 ft truck that they're driving down to Florida with a Tampa load on it as well as ours. They also may or may not have to drop a load in Atlanta. We'll know more when they get here to take our stuff.

They're sending a driver and two men....so three total. I'm thinking that we should tip them on this side and the Florida side. What do you all think? And how much should we give. Our bill is going to be somewhere near $5k.

Thanks Shell....that's what we were thinking.

I wanted to get them lunch but anything besides pizza. They get a lot of that. We can ask what they would like to have for a lunch order or we can just go and buy a bunch of burgers??? We have McDonalds and Burger King in the next town over or Taco Bell and KFC. We also have a subway, but that's going to be hard to eat and run. Maybe we'll get burgers and tacos and they can pick or have both.

Sorry for the idle chat.....just thinking out loud.

You can ask Subway to put together a small platter of sanwiches - you can get chips and soda there... Remember YOU have to have something to eat as well...

Yeah, if it was a short move, I would just tip at the end, but for a long haul, I think you need to do both.


They did have coffee and bagels, so I made it through the course. I need to input all of the credits into my attorney profile, but I'm running virus scan on my computer tonight, so it will have to wait. I'm in court tomorrow and Friday, and Olivia has her spring concert on Friday night. On Saturday, she has softball practice and then we're having some pizza/cake for Josh's big 3-5 birthday on Sunday, I'm meeting up with some old college friends who I haven't seen in a long time and we are going to see The Great Gatsby and have lunch. I am very excited! I just have to get through the rest of this week first, and my associate leaves for St Lucia tomorrow, so I'm stuck covering everything for the next few days- doh!

Thanks Ginamarie. That makes good sense.

Glad you got your coffee and bagels. Olivia sounds like she's a busy girl. YAY! What a busy weekend. Then Josh turns 35, the turning point, on Saturday. Happy Birthday Josh. Sunday lunch with the girls sounds like lots of fun too. You are going to be one busy beaver this weekend. But it all sounds like fun. Enjoy!!!

We just have last minute things to pack today. YAY! The movers come tomorrow and then we're off and gone. I can't believe that it's finally here. I need to keep pinching myself so that I know it's real. It has been a dream for such a long time.

My TV and modem officially get disconnected tomorrow morning. So I won't be on here again until after we check into the hotel some time on Saturday or Sunday depending on what time we get out of here tomorrow. Uncle Baker estimated it to be around 1-2 pm. That's a good time to get started south. We can make it by Saturday if we leave at that time. John gets the bug to go and he stays focused. No stopping except for gas. So I won't be drinking anything or I will have to stop every half hour. I'm not as young as I used to be....that's for sure.

I made the crock pot beef stroganoff - and it was good!! Of course, I forgot how my body reacts to dairy (milk & sour cream), so I have been paying for this since yesterday afternoon. Sad to say that I won't be making that again.

I have chicken to cook today - a ranch chicken recipe, with no dairy! lol! I'm going to pop it all in at lunch (230pm) and it'll take 4 hours on high. In time for dinner. Hopefully I'll feel up to eating then.

I'm also dealing with a very sore back today - not sure if I slept wrong or not, but sitting here with the heating pad on. So bad, that I actually considered taking 1/2 day off.

YAY we'll be neighbors soon. Not for about a week after we get there though. We'll be staying at the hotel near the Orlando airport for the first week or so. We'll just be visiting the house and keeping installation appointments. AFTER our stuff arrives and we stay in the house.....then we will officially be neighbors. I'm excited! I can't wait!

Glad the beef stroganoff was good at least while you were eating it. I need to print out that recipe when we get to the other side. My printer is packed already. haha.

Hope you enjoy the chicken and ranch recipe today. I love that you're so adventurous with your foods. You look for recipes and make them. I need John to be more like you. hahaha.

Sorry about your back. I wish you had a pain killer or muscle relaxer. At least you have the heating pad. I hope it gets better quickly.

Any news to make plans yet with him? At least he called to tell you about his test. That's great! I hope you get together soon.

YAY! for Thursday. It's almost Friday! Then you'll get some loving hugs from the family. I hope you enjoy your trip and feel better before you have to take off.

The ranch chicken recipe looked really good. How did that turn out?


Long day here. My computer had some kind of virus on it, the other party didn't bother to show up in court, and then my tire blew out on the way home from Olivia's spring concert. The tow truck guy was insane and couldn't find the spare, so he just towed me home and I will have to wait for AAA to come back again in the morning. Geez!

OH NO Ginamarie.....that's a horrible day! One thing right after another. You needed to stay in bed!

Hopefully it just means that you'll receive a lot of good things happening to you soon.
