It's Not Goodbye... It's See You Later

Well Friends, today's the day. The movers are going to the house and packing up. Josh came in on Friday, and the weekend has been a crazy whirlwind trying to get everything organized for the movers. We had to seperate all of our stuff (what's going now vs. what's staying), get the house kinda organized, prepare his truck for the drive, etc... As of tonite, I will be in the house with the puppies, some clothes, and a few extra things which I insisted on taking myself. It was kinda tough, deciding what I was ok with living a month without, making sure it would all fit in my little car, but I think we got it all sorted. It helps that the house here is in some ways its own entity, so there are a lot of things that "live in the house". There are plenty of dishes, pots and pans, and towels. There's a bed, and the rooms have drawers built into the walls. There's a futon, a kitchen table, a miniature couch (not a loveseat, more like a really really wide chair), even a tv and dvd player. It should be about as comfortable as living in the dorms in college (we had really nice dorms...). The one thing that I will be missing is a computer. Yes, my friends, Josh is taking the computer, and since my laptop met its rather untimely demise earlier this year, I will be blog-less while at home.
I will still be working, so I will not disappear completely. Things at work are starting to be more and more crazy as I work to organize things for whoever comes to take my place. All this to say, I may take something of a haiatus for a while. I'll try to update as I can, but it may not be very frequently. So, it's not goodbye, it's just see you later :)

Isn't moving fun! Oh, so many, good times, ugh. If we could only cut out all the work.
Thanks for visiting and I'm glad you enjoyed your trip. There is so much to see, it's a blast where ever you go in this BIG country. Have a great week and enjoy the adventure of moving.

Hang in there, moving can be so challenging. Esp. when you have to go without something and someone you love. We'll be happy to hear from you when we can. Keep us posted and prayers are on their way that all goes smooth.

Good luck, and when you've arrived...

Let me know where to send your earrings!

I'll hold them as long as you need me to so you can get settled. I know what it's like. We just bought our house 2 years ago, and there are still some boxes floating around...

Congrats, and thanks for participating!

At least the Blogosphere makes it like you really never left -- at least for all of your Bloggy Friends, that is!
