And Back

Eventually we had enough fun and decided we would meander our way back to Ohio- ok, the Colonel refused to let us have any more time off! We really felt bad about missing Matt and Jordan's weddings!
We also didn't really meander back. A brief stop for lunch
Once we had to leave we were ready to move out. We made it back in three days.
We spent the next week and a half unloading our storage shed and finding places for all of it in our new house and waiting for our household goods to arrive from the Army. One load got caught in a flash downpour. It was the craziest thing, it came on so suddenly. Of course, that load included our piano. The piano really died then. We called a tuner and he said, "call the coroner." We took the serial number to a piano dealer and they told us it had been made in 1905. Wow, I really wanted to keep it then- it was an antique, but they also said the situation was hopeless. Poor piano. The piano movers hauled it away just the other day and we got ourselves a spiffy new baby grand. Now if only someone would play it! Hmmm.

It looks like life is starting to settle down for your family. Your home looks beautiful. I can't wait to see pictures of it decorated. Enjoy Ohio. GO BUCKEYES!!
