The Move

Rewind to last week…

The anticipation that comes with a move might be near torture. Thoughts cross my mind such as, “What will we break,” “How are we going to move that couch,” and “Will anyone show up to help” (to name only a few). At the last minute, I decided to take off Friday, to begin the task. Kari’s sister, Ashley, and her husband James, arrived Thursday evening to continue the “boxing” processes with us. We made new boxes (that were broken down), reinforced boxes and did some patchwork on a few boxes. (Side note: Instead of purchasing boxes, see your local liquor store a month prior to your move, those are the best and cheapest boxes). My buddy Warren showed up on Friday, and we moved many boxes. At this point we realized we would need to empty out the boxes we had just moved, in order to pack up the remaining items…so we did. Empty boxes and a little dinner, we got more stuff packed, a game of Apples to Apples with the Salinas family and some good sleep, we were ready for Saturday. With the help of many friends, (more than expected) we made one big push on Saturday; successfully completing our transition from Pflugerville to Austin.

Today…(the “thank you” part)

We want to take this opportunity to say, “Thank you, thank you, thank you,” to each and everyone who came out to help us in the move. We were blessed by your positive attitudes, mostly encouraging words (cause I think Warren made fun of my weight), and strong backs. Each of you had an “impact role” in the move; and we couldn’t have done it without you in the time that we did. We were and are truly blessed by wonderful friends.


With the move behind us, we are looking forward and excited about more opportunities to make new friends in our area. In addition, we look forward to having many of you, family and friends over to our new place. May God bless you this week.
