Checking in

All the boxes are packed with a few still open for the last minute items. We actually have a little breathing time in between the last pre-moving chores in the next 3 days.

One freezer/fridge is empty and cleaned yesterday and the house fridge has been pretty cleared except for the few items we need for the next 3 days.

Yesterday I packed the last of our dishes and most cutlery and we are now down to paper plates, cups, bowls and plastic cutlery.

We actually had time for a lovely dinner out at the Knife and Fork last night with our friend Kelly, so my mad packing and purging pace is paying off these last 3 days with a more relaxed pace.  Time now to make my last minute to do lists and packing list for the plane ride to Oregon.

We are very fortunate to have been loaned a private jet from a dear friend of our son's, so our dog won't have to fit into one of those tiny carriers and be shoved under a seat. The jet sits 8 very comfortably, from what I can see by the photos, and we're the only passengers so there will be plenty of room for our carry on luggage, and animals. The stewardesses husband is a gourmet chef and will send along a lovely lunch. The universe has definitely been giving us many blessings with this move and we are so very grateful!

    June,I saw the pictures of the new house you guys are moving in & I must say it's beautiful. Oregon's a very pretty state & even though it's sad that you're leaving your friends in the NC mountains, at least the plane ride to LA to see Sean & family will be much shorter. Good luck with the move & best wishes with the house! Hope Jim is feeling well after some health issues & kudos to your daughter for doing yeoman like work with the move. I remember when she produced Pyramid for Dick Clark & now with his passing the game show & music world is a lot poorer. Dick was marvelous as host just like JIm was. All the best!
