Adventures in…Moving

The move is done!  The nest is empty once again!  We are tired and sore, but ready to embrace whatever adventure comes next!  The move was pretty smooth, considering it happened in January in Iowa!  We were blessed with a January thaw and sunshine.  A week earlier and we would have been battling 30 below wind chills.  Today was a shopping day…getting all the things that were still needed in the apartment and of course that first big grocery shopping.  Son #2 seems to be settling in and Dale and I (although furniture-less because we gave our sectional away) feel content, but will be adjusting again to the emptiness.  It tugged at our heartstrings a few times when we realized that nothing will ever be quite the same.  Up until this point he has been at college or home.  Even though he is only about 20 minutes away, we have to come to terms with the fact that both our boys are out of the house for good now.  So, let the new adventure begin…we can do what we want, when we want, even dance around the house naked (but the dog looks at us like we are crazy if we do that).  As Robert Browning said:

Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be…
