The moving truck broke!

We waited for hours today for the movers to show up. They called and said they were delayed, which I thought was really considerate. Finally, around 4 pm, they just couldn't get their truck fixed or get another arranged in time.

This gave us a chance to put our Zen response into practice - "everything has a reason." We took a couple of very deep cleansing breaths, calmly commiserated with the movers, rescheduled for Saturday and sinply let go. This means sleeping at a friend's house for a couple of days because everything is packed and ready to move. At this point of exhaustion, we just said, "ah...perhaps some rest."

The movers called back and apologized again. Now, I am really impressed.

So, Saturday we move.
