My Parents: Moving Fast

See the fast sports car above, that is how fast I feel my parents have gone since “My Mother” post.   In less than a week my parents signed a lease for an apartment at Meadowwood, a retirement community located near IU University’s cyclotron.  A few days later my Dad and I look at three office spaces; two needing work and one move in ready-we chose the move in ready office.  A week after that my Dad signed a lease for the insurance office and this past Monday he moved in.   The on-line retail business will be in the same building but a floor up.   A move in date has yet to be set but it will be sometime next month.

Since then my parents  chose what belongings to take, what to donate a lot to charity, tossed stuff, and will give me a few things. Today helpers with a local relocation firm packed my parents’s things except the furniture.  Tomorrow the furniture and the boxes will be put in a truck and taken to the new apartment.

I have done my share of sorting too mostly work stuff and I made repairs to a wall papering job I did years ago in one of the bathrooms in my parent’s house and returned a bathroom cabinet to them.    The house goes up for sale Friday.  As I wrote at the beginning my parents moved fast, very fast.  I never imagined my parents could be this speedy.  The good news is they will be adjusting to their new home soon enough and as for the on-line business I am so glad I have more time before it moves.
