Stuff has arrived

So on Thursday I made the trek to Philly, via Southwest airlines, and rented a truck to move most of my personal belongings from PA back to Nashville. I also got a ton of old breakables per se and some great old furniture from my parents place, as well as stuff from my grandfathers apartment, and from Jane, Bob, and Judy in Wilmington. Sunday I pulled the full 770 miles from DE to Smyrna. Almost 13 hrs in a Penske truck. I'm too old for that and by old I mean I'm not 21 anymore, but not old like Brian.

It was amazing how much stuff I had in PA. I threw out probably 10 boxes of notes from elementary, middle, high school, and college, plus my spelling quizzes from 4th grade, etc etc. I saved a couple things for posterity and for me to read and learn something from, i.e. a paper I wrote on the Arab-Israeli conflict from about 5th grade. I have WAY more baseball cards then I thought. Nearly one whole shelf in the basement is baseball cards! Yikes.

I had a great visit with the 'rents and the Austins in DE. They spoiled me and I think I gained 5 lbs due to excessive soda, pizza, hoagies, veal parm, and peanut butter M&M's (which I love but can't find anywhere, thanks Judy!!).

The shelves I built a couple weeks ago worked perfectly. We actually still had space to put more stuff on them after all the boxes were loaded up, hence we can put our luggage and camping stuff up on shelves too! By the way Jay, the radial saw is staying with me:) You'll have to fight me for it.

I may be old, but I do have a hot, much-younger wife (that's writing this on my behalf).
