The Superbowl Of Moving

My cousin Deana is moving to Florida this week and we offered to help; you know, since we have a truck and all. We are loading two cars, one crated motorcycle, two mountain bikes, a mattress and box spring and several rubbermaid bins.

In the last two weeks, we've been going back and forth with phone calls and emails between no less than seven people, one of which is in the Virgin Islands. To say coordinating has been a challenge would be an understatement.

I think now I can probably add "logistics management" to my resume. My brother has likened the strategizing and coordination of this move to planning the half time show at the Super Bowl; I think that would have probably been much easier.

As of right now, it looks like there will be dancing and fireworks, but we have yet to secure a singer for the National Anthem. The trip starts on Saturday, so keep your fingers crossed for a smooth journey.

Kickoff is at 12 p.m. central time, 2 p.m. eastern.
