*Thank you, Kelly, for helping me soar with the eagle's nest with a better title. You sharpen me.
The morning got off to a very early start. I woke up at 6 and started getting ready. I decided we should get a hotel room for tonight, so I had to get Jackson and I ready to be officially gone. We still needed to clean under the couch cushions (gross!) and do the pantry, so I tried to gently force my husband out of his slumber. He did get up immediately, but apparently he needed to have a 45 minute quiet time (and prayer nap) on this big day, so it was pretty much for naught. I am probably the one who needed an extended quiet time.
The packers showed up with a ginormous 18 wheeler that took up half the street. They came in and got down to business. Our sweet neighbors who have lived in their house for 25 years came over to say goodbye. Then Jackson and I left before I could get emotional about my house being dismantled. I am focusing on the greater glory of my new house!
Then I dropped Jackson off at child care and headed out to find a sophisticated wifi hotspot to do some work (and apparently, personal blogging). So here I am at McDonald's. I have to take some lunch to The Mister before 11, so this works a little better than Starbucks. Plus, their tea isn't that good anyway. I might as well have a sausage biscuit.
I just want y'all to know that there is a large group of senior citizens in the Mickey D's this morning and they are playing Bingo. They're calling out their numbers and all that. Classic. This is the kind of thing I will miss about Irving. Irving rocks it old school.
