At the end of June, my Dad will be packing up his belongings (and boxes of stuff for us kids) and driving a UHaul (well, my brother will be driving it) out to Seattle.
After listing the house back in October, it finally sold a month ago. My sister, being an awesome human being, is organizing a farewell party for my Dad. She got Mom's address book when Mom died and has been MUCH better than me at keeping up with the Cincy posse. Anyway, I've been trying to figure out timing and finances to get out there. UGH. Delta has a monopoly on Cincy and it's really expensive to fly there. All the flight times are bad at one end or the other. Aside from that, the Sunday of the celebration weekend is my hubby's birthday and I'd like to be around for that. Basically it just doesn't feel like it's 'supposed' to happen.
My week there last October was sufficient for my emotional goodbye to the house, but it would be great to also see the people who made Cincinnati home.
