Mammoth Cave - Sort of

Took the family to Mammoth Cave yesterday. Here's what I thought we'd see:

Here's what we actually saw:

It's what happens when YOU DON'T MAKE RESERVATIONS AHEAD OF TIME. So then, this happened:

The Mother of All Moves

The family is on the move, time is short, and there's no time for elegance. Here's my recipe for a quickie in-town move when you absolutely, positively have to be out by the end of the month. This also works if, like me, you are temporarily restricted to lifting no more than 5 pounds at a time.

Gather these things:

Any version clothes basket will do as long as it is fairly heavy-duty.

With or without tops - just for transport, remember.


Everything can be moved in a clothes basket, file box, black bag, or carried to your new place in the hatchback or trunk of your car except the larger items that you will need movers or a moving truck for.

Sometimes the moves that seem the MOST chaotic cause the least amount of stress. Maybe I could get some bailout money to do a research study.

Back to Blogging

It's been busy around the ranch. I'm still convalescing from an interesting health adventure, I've started a new job, and we're moving to a new rental house where we can actually unpack all the boxes that have been packed up since the summer of 2005. I think I'll call this the Perfect Storm.

So, I'm letting the emergency brake off and once I can get a friend to give me a push, I'll pop the clutch, and get this blog rolling down the hill and running once again.
