Ease on down the road
I just completed the biggest move of my life. Three kids, my wife, my dog, and a house full of belongings just made the big trip to a new community over three hours away from our old home. Of course, we picked the absolute worst weekend of the summer to move. Heat indexes have been up around 105 or higher every day this week and doing anything outside is an exercise in exhaustion. To top it all off I stupidly scheduled the move on a week that my wife was obligated to go to a week long conference in Des Moines. I thought I could do everything by myself, but I quickly found out differently. Luckily I have some very good and kind students and their families that volunteered to help me move out.
