Kari Home for Summer
At 1:00 AM last night, Kari officially is home for summer! I drove the Mesmer’s SUV to WVU last night, with Katie as my co-pilot. Well, not so much a co-pilot as a chatter-box. It made the time go by quickly!
I was delighted to see Kari had just about everything packed. She even loaded (the first of 4) a bin for me to wheel down to the car. We spent just around an hour getting her belongings down from her room and were on the road by 10:00 PM. The SUV was without an inch to spare. I kid you not!
My face must have had a smile plastered on it the entire ride home. Kari and Katie feed off of each other. The conversation never went silent. In fact, it kept getting louder. They talked about college. They played music entirely too loudly. They laughed as Katie told stories of Ryan. They made summer plans. Ever 50 miles or so they would remember I was there…
Basement Project Takes Major Step
Our thanks to Mary and Mitchell, who carried a ton of stuff from the basement to the curb for trash pick-up today. It is gone! I watched in a tinge of angst as our belongings were crushed into the back of the garbage truck.
They carried another ton to the porch to donate to charity.
The basement is starting to open up. I’ll be meeting with Bryan Tiplady and a contractor on Tuesday to get the plans laid down. It’s exciting to see things moving forward.
