Last Look

On a mission to see her childhood home one last time before our big move, my daughter drove from Virginia for the last look. While my daughter did not realize it, she became the superhero who "saved the day". 

Why you ask? At the eleventh hour, I realized that I could not reasonably accomplish the important task of getting my house packed before the movers would arrive. There were too many interruptions and exhaustion set in. In a short time from her arrival in Long Island, Devin got the last phase of the packing organized. Without her help, my husband, son, and I would not have been able to complete the process successfully. I am glad that she had her organizational skills and fresh perspective ready to come to our aid. 

Moving  Day, March 9, 2021

Exhausted, we now turn into our Virginia home ready to unpack the car and wait for the Ethan Allen delivery truck to arrive in the morning. The following day, the movers will deliver our belongings and then we head back to Long Island for the walkthrough and closing. Then, I can have a last look and wave goodby.

More thoughts and photos will follow.

Extending my thanks to all the slicers who have kept my spirits up to my moving day.


  1. Hooray for all of you! May it be a sweet goodbye and hello.

  2. Moving can be bittersweet. So glad your daughter was there to save the day as things go touch for you all. Blessings to you and your family as you make new memories in your new home.

  3. You made it, Carol. Congratulations. Wishing you, your husband and son many healthy wonderful years in your new home. Many new memories are waiting to be made.

  4. Oh Carol, I'm so happy you are chronicling your move during Slice of Life. I admire the way you make time for writing.

  5. I am happy that you got the help. I can't imagine what the goodbye feels like in your heart.

  6. We moved in December and I can understand the physical, mental, and emotional exhaustion of moving. Now that we've been here for 3 months, we are experiencing the joys of moving. I hope you get settled and can experience that as well.

  7. So good to be with you on your move and catch glimpses into your world.
