Moving day is both exciting and frightening for most people. We moved my little girl to San Antonio, Texas for graduate school recently. I say little girl, but she earned a Neuroscience degree with honors from UAB. My wife and I are very proud of the young woman she has become. We moved her to Birmingham for school, but it was only 3 and a half hours away. San Antonio is 11 and a half hours away. I’ll start with the day I rented a truck. I asked for a 12 foot truck, which was overkill for the items we were taking. As I was about to leave, I noticed the gas cap had a lock on it and I did not have a key. About an hour and a half later I left with a 16 foot truck. We loaded the boxes and totes that were ready to go. After work the next day, the truck was loaded except for the last minute items to take and to leave at home. We ended up leaving at 9:30 PM. We stopped MOVING DAY!

in Little Rock as thunderstorms started rolling in. We got a few hours sleep before starting again, as we had to be in San Antonio before 5:00 PM when the leasing office closed. The truck had a governor that limited speed to 75 MPH. I sent my wife and daughter ahead to get the key. They made it with 40 minutes to spare. We unloaded our suitcases and a few blankets from the truck. That sleep on the floor was much better than the hotel because we were exhausted. Luckily the next morning there was shade on the side of the building where we were unloading. I think the temperature was 104 degrees that day. Later, we had everything put away and went to the store to line her shelves with food. Even the best laid plans have to change sometimes, but with hard work the results turned out the same. - By Brad, PTA
