Getting Closer

Just checking in.  We're down to less than a week before we head out to our new place.  Dad's got 5 days left at his job, and although he hates uprooting and starting over, he says he's looking forward to the challenges ahead of him. I think he's getting in over his head, but I also know he's gotten to a point where he says it's time to go.  Mom's got the place turned upside-down.  Not in a messy way, of course.  She's been spending every day while dad's at work, organizing and packing, and we're living amongst piles of boxes.  She's been taking care of lining up things on the other end so that once we're down there everything will fall into place.  We're actually heading out on Christmas Eve day, first thing in the morning (as long as dad's got the truck packed and ready).  I'd offer to help, but I think I'd just end up getting in the way.  Plus, I don't really feel like it.
