Still packing and moving, but it's all fun...

The past few days were spent packing boxes and organizing things for Tiff's move to Catonsville. She and Scott have been preparing for the move, so we just waded in and started packing as she gave us direction. It is going quite well, so we keep a pretty easy pace. Bob gets his nap every afternoon and I take Dixie, our grand-beagle for a walk every morning. Tiff works from home most days so she is around all day, but usually busy in the office. It is nice to be there when she "pops" out for a break and we get to chat and visit. Usually we stop at a little Mom-N-Pop shop here, Rives Store, and pick up some of their incredible breakfast sandwiches on the way in. They cook about fifteen pounds of bacon every morning, and must put about 6 big pieces on each Bacon McMuffinwich. Yep, we're surely getting an overdose of cholesterol on these morsels, but it's nice to sit and enjoy breakfast with Tiff after we get there. Besides, we need sustenance for the arduous job of packing all those boxes each day!!

In the evenings we cook dinner together then play games. We have been playing "Acquire" the past few evenings and our strategies intensify every night. It is a game of acquistion and development of hotel chains and is really alot of fun.

Sunday, we made Shrimp Scampi and cooked sweet corn on the cob and butter beans in the afternoon, and the kids came over to the motorhome here at Fort Meade for dinner. It was such a lovely night...all the humidity was gone and we were able to sit outside and enjoy the meal. There was time for a walk down by the lake to see the ducks and beavers. Of course, then it was another cut-throat game of Acquire, ending in a tie between Tiff and Bob. Dessert was a home-made Brumble-berry (peach and blueberry) Cobbler. Yum Yum again!!

Tomorrow Tiff works at the office in Fairfax, so we are planning a little road trip towards Hagerstown. We may look up Smokey and Pam Ridgely for a dinner in the evening. So no packing tomorrow!!

Hugs to everyone!

I am thinking if you and Bob ever need a part time job, you could be professional packers and movers.

Jesse and I love to play Acquire..We use to play with our friends in Las Vegas all the time.
Sounds like this moving is a lot more fun then the one you just finished. Wish we were there in MD with you.
