Moving Day #3!

This is the most beautiful sight I've seen since landing in Europe 6 weeks ago.

One truck picking up our temporary furniture, and another truck dropping off our own furniture and all the rest of our belongings.

And it is beautiful because it is happening on the same day at the same time.

We had prepared ourselves for the worst...whatever that is, we're not sure...maybe our stuff gets stuck in customs forever, or they deliver the wrong sea container, or everything's broken, or they take away all our temporary things while our own stuff is delayed and we don't have a fork or plate or towel to our name, or they bring our stuff while our temporary stuff is still here and we're overwhelmed with stuff...

Shall I go on?

No, I'll just admire the beauty.

Since we packed on May 15, it's been just over 7 weeks.
our half-full half-sized sea container.  yes, it is always sunny and gorgeous in Luxembourg. heh.
"I don't remember owning anything that shape!" was my recurring thought as the packages poured in.
When I picked up the kids from school at lunchtime they were thrilled to see their toys and watch some of the proceedings.

When the movers were packing back in May, we accidentally left Daphne's most favorite thing, her special "blankie" that she sleeps with every night, on top of her bed, and it was packed up with the bedding and sent across the sea!  Fortunately, Grammy loaned her a spare that got her through.  Until today!!

Do you think blankie's in here?
Blankie, can you hear me?
Tonight, we sleep in our own beds!
someone else missed his most favorite thing.
I know it's the 4th of July but it sure feels like Christmas at the Ts!

Somehow it makes me happy to see the trombone in the background. All is well in the Titterington household.

I remember that blankie from star of the week show and tell. That's a long time to be separated from such a special item!
