We're Moving!

We’re moving.

Time to cut the clutter.

Time to downsize.

We did that last time we moved! How could we have accumulated enough stuff to downsize again?!? We’ve given away a lot of things in the last year or so. And there were things I’d been saving for a yard sale some day. That day came today and the sale was succe$$ful! 

Now the quest is for boxes. We’re always on the lookout for good boxes! Jerry Seinfeld has the funniest routines about moving and boxes you can watch here: https://vimeo.com/32983751

According to Seinfeld, caskets are good boxes. They have nice handles to lift with. I guess I can understand that. Joe’s daddy was an undertaker so we’ve seen lots of ‘good boxes’ in our lifetime together...but usually only at the funeral home!

The family business has been a big part of our lives. Because of it, Joe proposed in a cemetery...by asking me if I’d like to be buried in the family plot. I said, “Now?!?!?” Following our honeymoon we opened our wedding gifts in an upstairs storage room at the funeral home. His favorite car is a hearse. And he likes to tell people the hardest thing I had to get used to was sleeping in a bed with a lid on it!


I think it’s kind of funny that I would close this particular blog with the line I use in each blog posting, but I will anyway...
“If you have a pulse, you have a purpose…so make your life count!”
