What a Day

We moved into the new house a week ago  We have made a lot of progress unpacking our stuff, so we put a bunch of large boxes on the road for pickup.

My mom was standing on the front porch when a strong gust of wind sent our boxes airborne.  Mom called for me and when I saw what was happening, I was astounding by the speed in which the boxes were traveling.  I looked at my mom and said, “We only lived here a week and we already managed to trash the whole neighborhood.”

We got into the Jeep and tried to get as many of the boxes as we could.  However, after a few minutes the rain was so heavy we could hardly see.  We were determined not to be “those neighbors,” so we kept picking up boxes even in the middle of the downpour.


We finished the job and went home.  As we walked in the door Gwen started laughing, because we both looked like drowned rats.  Then Gwen told us to report to the dinning room entrance.  Once we arrived, Gwen opened the doors and presented a wonderful spaghetti dinner.  It was absolutely delicious.

It’s been an interesting day here at the Thaler household.
