Most of you have “met” my horse, Charlie B. Good.
Now, it’s pretty easy to know what do with a cat and two dogs when moving. They just move with you. But a horse that is stabled away from home—that can be more difficult. And so, Charlie has been one of the most challenging pieces in our moving puzzle.
Big news! I’m the middle of selling one home, purchasing another, and—you guessed it!—moving! You know when you have to have something down RIGHT NOW, and it’s all on you, no one is going to pitch in? I got a call that there was a house showing in two hours. TWO HOURS to clear away all clutter, wash dishes, wash floors, put away the laundry, get the cat litter out of the house… heck, get the CAT out of the house, and the dogs, and the kid, all at dinner time. And so I found myself at California Pizza Kitchen, crazed, with a carload of animals. Later, I heard that the showing was for a curious neighbor with no imminent plans to buy or sell property. Seriously. She should have just stopped by for coffee and looked around!
We’re just a few weeks away from Memorial Day, the unofficial start of summer. Every summer I start out thinking we have so much time to fit in so many annual traditions and new experiences, so many rites of summer large and small.
