Supposed to be a little rainy

I’m scheduling this to post. I used to have a VW beetle like the one pictured, but it was red. My VW rabbit is about this shade of blue, though.

Yesterday went much better than expected. Picked up the rental truck at Cape Cod Auto & Transport. They were Soooooo nice – told me not to worry about when I dropped it off, just leave the key in the drop box. So the “reservation assistant” caused me a day of stress for no reason.

Truck was easy to drive. Even got it backed into the driveway (with my landlord’s help).

I spent the morning loading in all the boxes by myself. It wasn’t that bad. I’d staged a bunch in the garage – and had them packed in 15 minutes. So I’d bring a stack up to the garage from the basement, take a 5-minute break, load them into the truck, take a 5-minute break, load the next stack, etc. I had all the boxes in before my neighbors showed up, and it was just a few pieces of furniture.

We drove to Bourne, and had it all unloaded and packed in the storage unit in 40 minutes.  And there’s plenty of room for everything else we need to put in. What a relief!

Drove back, filled the truck with gas, dropped it off. Loaded the car with our first batch for the new place.

This morning, we hit the road by 5 AM, get our keys, unload, take some measurements, drive back down, and reload the car.

I’m looking forward to it! Let’s hope today goes smoothly. Lots of driving, but getting the keys to the new place is a big step.

Peace, friends, and thanks for all the support. It truly makes a difference.
