Chris and I know how to have adventures. No doubt about it! My first leg of the latest adventure started out here.
From there (Mason City, Iowa) I went to Minneapolis and then on to Dayton, Ohio where I awaited the arrival of my dearly beloved later on in the evening. A quick cab ride and we picked up this.
A 20 footer to fill with treasures from our storage unit that we have had since April in Lima, Ohio —filled with wonderful treasures from Chris’s dad’s house. A quick trip to the unit—-unloading and loading into the UHaul in the drizzling rain and soon we were on our way —hoping to complete the 700+ miles safely.
I made Chris do all the driving this time. It was no big deal to him but I am not quite ready to become a tag team truck driving team. The trip went well and was quite uneventful which was so fabulous!!! Made it home safely and turned the UHaul in a day early ! Win Win! We unloaded all the stuff in the garage and the next day we “situated” most of the furniture that we brought back. Of course all of the boxes and plastic bins of “stuff” will have to wait but at least we have it organized in the garage.
And now some pictures of some of the treasures that we are excited to welcome into our home!! A lot of history in these pieces and they are beautiful on top of it!!
They seem to be quite happy in their new home and I know that we love having them here!!! Somehow we feel more closure now. Having all of the Lima details all wrapped up, up of the stuff moved and that chapter closed has allowed us to move on a bit. We miss Chris’s dad every day but having some of the familiar family things around in our own home makes us feel a little more settled and complete. It is a very good thing to be able to move on. It is time.
