People were incredulous when they found out that The Mister had stayed behind in Los Angeles to pack up our belongings while I started my new job at the university halfway across the country. They wondered if he would carefully pack my stuff. I told them that I trusted him…in fact, I think he does a much better job of packing than I do. And, certainly, after moving from California to New Jersey and then to Indiana and then back to California gave him a lot of experience packing all of our worldly goods.
The box with the sewing machine in it was well padded. But, when I pulled the machine out and opened it up, I discovered…
He had also padded the machine inside of its case with fabric to keep it from jostling around.
We nervously set it in Grandma’s sewing cabinet….
And, after oiling it, I took it on a test run on a scrap of fabric.
It worked beautifully and sounded heavenly!
And that is why I trusted him to pack all of our worldly goods while I started my new job halfway across the country!
