Finding "just right" in my life's porridge

When the passcodes just won’t work

Filed under: Uncategorized — Moving On @ 9:05 pm

I finally got the rest of our worldly goods out of the house last night, only to find that the passcode to get out of the storage facility wouldn’t work.  From either side of the gate.  The guys I hired/bartered with to help with the move (in exchange for a pretty nice lawn mower, chain saw, and weed whacker) were not amused.  Big Jason and his coworker, whose name I can’t recall, needed to get to another job, his three-year-old son was sobbing because he was cold, and I was ready to join him.  Finally, another customer came to store his own things, and let us slip out the gate.

You know that feeling you get, “I know I’m forgetting something really important”?  I couldn’t shake it, so I drove back to the house to check out Big Jason’s work.  There, on the shed floor, were the boxes with all of our high school and college yearbooks, along with some very special books.  Precious memories.  I’m so glad I went back.
