We put our house on the market and started sorting, throwing, packing, selling, and using up things. We started eating our food storage, until we looked like Old Mother Hubbard.
After we closed on the house, we packed up what little was left in the car and drove to Austin where it will be stored in our daughter’s attic.
We spent time with our children and grandchildren in Corpus Christi TX, Austin TX, Davidson NC, and Bat Cave NC. We are back in Corpus Christi for five days to finish up all preparations, speak in church, and be set apart as missionaries for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We are staying in a hotel and have been picnicking for lunch and dinner each day.
