Last Saturday we got up bright and early to drive to my daughter's house and load up a truck to move her to Phoenix. My sonand his wife met at our house and we drove to the town my daughter lived in and went to breakfast. She had a friend helping too. Between the six of us we had the truck loaded in about an hour and a half. Then my son and his wife said their goodbyes to my daughter. That was hard to watch. We were all in tears. Off to Phoenix we went.
It took us three days to get there. We ran into horrible rain the first day, the kind where you can barely see to drive. My daughter told me the next day that she couldn't see the road and was just going by our tail lights. (We drove our pickup pulling a trailer full if her things and she followed in her car.). We made it from Illinois to Missouri the first day. The scone day we made better time and stayed in Texas. Monday morning she decided to head out before us because she could make better time on her own. We had to stop more frequently for gas. She arrived and had the lease signed before we got there.
She was able to find a couple neighbors to help unload. It didn't take long to get the truck unloaded. It was 113 degrees! Tuesday we sent the day with her and got everything out away and pictures hung. Tuesday night we said good-bye. Another very emotional day. My husband normally isn't emotional but even he was in tears.
I've talked to her several times since Tuesday and she seems to be doing fine. It's the first time we've lived more than an hour apart. I still get teary, but we'll be fine.
