Packing and Driving

We packed and packed and packed on Friday.  I didn’t think I would make it through the day, but as you can tell. . .I did!  At first it was just Sidney, Moose, and me, carrying what seemed like millions of boxes.  But just when I thought we weren’t going to finish Lisa and Matt helped for the win!!  They gave us that last jolt of energy to get it done.  When the truck was about 75% full, I was positive everything wasn’t going to fit and my stomach started to churn.  But we managed to get everything stuffed (literally) inside!  And now a word for this post’s sponsor: Space Bags.  They are trully amazing, not only are we using them for the move, but we’ll only be working with ONE CLOSET once we get to Chicago, so they will be invaluable there!

I thought I drove the massive Penske deftly, though some described it as “crazy”.  Nothing was hit though the “don’t-feel-asleep” line was crossed more than a few times, but only because the truck is soooooo big!  Ferguson got to spend most of the rise on Sidney’s lap, but was eventually too antsy for him (Sidney) to take anymore, and he was relegated to using the floor.  For the rest of the trip he silently tried to sneak on my lap, and get pity pets by placing his adorable little, bearded chin on my thigh.

Now, we’re in Godfrey (STL burb) with Mom, David, and Aunt Abi. It’s hard to tell if Ferguson is excited to see his aunt, but I know he’s happy to be off the road!

Mostly they ignore each other until Abi tries to herd him
