ANIMO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I'm having to repeat this to myself every 10 minutes or so - can't wait for it to be over. :) I have EMPATHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Honestly, I've been feeling overwhelmed for you guys since I first read about this move! I've been praying for you throughout the days as I think of it. I'm so glad your kiddos are such hard workers! I showed Vicente your pics the other day, especially one of Gus moving something, and V said, "Well, *that* looks like his dad!" I sure wish I could be there to help...well, I wish Vicente could help, and I could be the entertainment! :~p
Okay, what does "Animo" mean? Here are my guesses...a misspelling of 'geromino' which means you are ready to jump off a high cliff(a common feeling when in the midst of a move),a veiled literary reference which means you want us to think you are way smarter than we are(we already do),a cry for cookies of the animal-shaped variety (this is my natural response to high stress situations!), ora childlike whine for Aunty Mo (whoever she is) to come and finish the work for you! So far I have been unsuccessful in getting any aunties or anyone else to show up when I whine! So Hayes and Sowers and anyone else in the midst of a fiercesome moving of belongings, stand firm. This too shall pass! In the meantime God is with you...in between the "animos" remember the "emmanuels"! You are not alone!! And you are very loved!
Animo is spanish - for take heart...or don't be discouraged.
Having moved so often (and usually without DH) I have sympathy for you all! So impressed with all your hard work.
