Bill and the girls and I spent a good part of the past two days helping Melissa get settled in her new apartment which is just a few blocks from our house. We were able to assemble IKEA furniture, hang venetian blinds, etc. so that she could unpack her things, organize this new life and feel a bit more settled when she returns to her job on Monday.
We were more than glad to help but a day and a half later....we are painfully aware of how lifting, nailing, assembling, et al, are taking a toll on our aging-even-as-we-speak muscles. I believe we used muscles we forgot we once had!
In the end though...it felt good to know that we could be of help....always a nice feeling.
