Life Interrupts

My daughter got a different job.  This entails her moving two states from where she's currently living and working.  The last few weeks I've been involved in  helping her either look for a place to live or getting packed for the move.

I remember when the girls were little and moving was a thing - for a time Ken and I moved every six months.  It was never fun or easy.  I remember getting up early, getting organized and going until the house was somewhat set up.

Now I've been down twice now to help her move and I'm exhausted.  Yes I have more health issues which slows me down a lot.  Last weekend Ken and I were there to help her with the majority of her packing.  We worked all day on Saturday.  We got a lot done but less than I would have liked.  I say that but her kitchen was packed - except the things she'll need through next week.  Her dining room was almost completely packed.

Sunday we got up, worked on more packing.  I didn't do much.  I feel like I spent more time watching tv than packing.  She sorted and packed while Ken moved stuff and I assembled boxes and did some packing.

I am once again feeling my age as I help her get organized and ready for her move.  I know she appreciates everything I've done.  At the same time, I'm done and can't wait for a free weekend again.
