Perhaps our move has been no different from any other long distance move in terms of the amount of work involved. But, with our having lived in the house for 25 years and Sheila’s family for 23 years before that, the amount of accumulated stuff, with all the emotions attached, has made it a very strenuous and, at times, emotional affair.
But, there have been very positive aspects to the move and a huge one has been the help that people have given us. Here is a brief, and woefully incomplete, record of some of the kind assistance.
Cleaning cupboards and appliances.
Carrying the heavy stuff
Bringing food (several people) Vaccuming
Taking stuff apart
Thank you, everyone (including those for whom we didn’t have photos)!
