Slogging through Saturday

May 5th, 2012 at 09:45 pm

I did plenty of errands today, but the past couple days have had their extra time devoted to helping a friend move. They have had a hard time. The husband bought their house 6 years ago, and now it's worth less than half of what he paid for it. So they're walking away from it and have rented a cute duplex closer to the university in a much better neighborhood. But they feel awful about leaving the house, yet their daughter is almost ready for kindergarten, and there's no way they can send her to school near their old deteriorating neighborhood.

So, this morning they moved--and a bunch of us went over there with dinner and drinks to spend the evening putting stuff away. They looked so tired; I really felt for them.

Now I'm tired too. But tomorrow can be devoted to moving DD into her newly painted room and grading some papers.

    How nice of you to help your friends out like that; I like it when community pitches in to ease the burden of others. Smile All change is difficult, but ultimately it sounds like a much better move (especially if the school is better). Hope the move into DD's new room went well!
