Yuuki's Moving Day

Guest post by Yuuki
Its become apparent  Mom and Dad are preoccupied. I've done my best to remind them  I am HERE.
I've laid on the stairs as they scurried up and down.
I've tried to tempt them into walks - Mom hasn't taken me walking four FOUR DAYS.
Looking longingly at the leash resulted in it being put in a giant pile and a label affixed.
This morning three strange men took over our home. I howled an alarm, but no one seemed to care as they carried box after box out of our home.  I continued to whimper and howl until I realized my family simply didn't care if they were robbed blind.
I noticed all the most prized possessions had a special sign affixed to them. I wrangled this most audacious badge of honor from Stacia.
These men like music unlike any *I've* ever heard before.  I finally had all I could take and escaped to the neighbor's house. They knew the family would be lost without me and so I returned to guard the family until the men left.
The family keeps talking about the big pile moving into "The Caboose."  I'm not sure what has gotten into them. What could full-timing mean? Will I have a house to guard? I hear lots of talk about 6 foot leashes and stakes.  Stacia keeps talking about snow and Mom and Dad keep mention Snow Birds. I've hunted a lot of birds before, but I can't remember this type. I sense my life is about to change. 
It was a long day. Moving is tiring.  

First Day of School????

I've noted everyone posting "first day of school" pictures online today. Here's ours....
Nolan 10th, Alex 7th/8th, Stacia 5th; subject to change
We are off until after Labor Day - I think. We have enough days banked from the summer.
The movers showed up today at 1045. Significantly later than 0830, but they called to say they'd be late. They did work until 1845. The asked to use Stacia's CD player; we said yes.... and we listened to loud rock all day.....  I was glad when they went home.
I was also glad to run an errand for bottled water, ice and lunch for the packers.
I love how this illustrates their personalities

The house is emptying out - upstairs and garage is done. 
Edward, co-owner of the company, called to ask if we could skip a day of packing. We need to get this part of the show we can clean, and sort through the many trailer piles.
We heard from Discount RV repairs again. It seems that Carrier made our AC unit - and the furnace is integrated into it. Carrier went out of business five years ago. No one else makes this type of unit. He is buying a new AC to install and it will pump through the ducts....and the furnace will get a separate thermostat. This is going to take longer than he expected. He's still thinking Thursday or Friday...we prayed for Saturday.
We're getting there. That light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter.
