"Someone once told me that time was a predator that stalked us all our lives. I rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey and reminds us to cherish every moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we've lived."
-Jean Luc Picard

Happy Thanksgiving!!

We are still moving (ugh!)and will take another load over a little later today and then find a place to have some T-day dinner. Mr. Hairball and his minions will do the heavy stuff like furniture tomorrow while I work on sorting out all the boxes so they are all in the room they belong in. We are both very physically and mentally tired from the whole moving saga. I've got an old injury that is saying "STOP GOING UP AND DOWN THE STAIRS 5000 TIMES A DAY!!" at the end of each day as I hobble home. Going up and down them a couple of times a day is okay right now but, the numerous trips involved in moving are hard on me. When we are ready to buy a house it will be a one story house as my difficulties with stairs will increase with age.

Some new people moved in next door to us at our old place and if last night is an example of a normal night for them, I'm glad we are leaving as they must have been playing football inside their townhouse as I kept hearing running and thudding noises. No point addressing it now and we want to keep on their good side for the next few days. It's hard to park the moving van perfectly straight out in front so that it is not encroaching onto their half of the carport/driveway area. If they won't complain about the driveway issue, then I'll live with them being noisy for a few days.

I better get busy packing and loading. Enjoy your holiday and for those who will be shopping on Friday, wear your low heeled supportive shoes and be careful out there!!
