We made it to Georgia.
I went to bed around midnight and Natalie finally went to bed at 2AM. We were up and running by 7AM to get the last stuff ready for our movers to be there by 8AM. As we began loading the boxes we realized the truck we got was a little smaller that we thought when we reserved it online. The guide for renting the trucks said that a 16 foot truck was for a two to three bedroom house. Apparently what it meant was that a 16 foot truck was for moving two to three rooms. Big difference! Oh well, we knew this move would include downsizing much the junk we had cluttering up our lives. We just didn’t think it meant abandoning a house full of furniture (jk). We only had to give up our dining room set, which was given to us in the first place, as well as a few other little odds and ends. Mostly stuff we acquired second hand anyway. The boys have agreed to go back after they get home and take all the stuff to charity. (If you know anyone who needs some furniture have them give me a call.)
After getting everything packed into the truck and cleaned up in the house we were finally on our way. I told everyone I wanted to be out of there by Noon. However I knew it would be later. We ended up leaving by 4PM, which sounds really late but that is when I really expected to get out of there anyway. We all drove until we had to stop and we are now in a Hotel just south of Macon resting up for our long journey tomorrow. Thanks for all the prayers. I will write again soon.
