I'll Say it Once & I'll Say it Again...


We (Brian) decided to keep the relocation money his company gave him to use on the house instead of to hire movers. GRRR. That's how I feel about that. and let me tell you.. I've been pouting and bitching the entire time. Nope I'm not ashamed to say it.

Our official move date is April 3. SO stressed!

I do have a little helper... So he thinks.

While Brian & I are cleaning out the storage closet...

Jaxon IS good at labeling the boxes for me (this says "Jackets")

We're shipping him off to Lola & Abu's house a few weeks early

We closed on our new house on Friday, March 11 and got the keys on Wednesday, March 16. On a side note, I have NEVER seen the house we just bought. Yes, the first time I will see it will be the day I move in. Kinda crazy. Brian keeps asking me where we should put stuff and I keep saying, "I've never even SEEN the flippin' house! I don't know!" Yup, sometimes I even use the real expletive. It's been stressful. Brian did take an extensive video of the house and it looks pretty amazing, I can't wait to see it!

Since the keys were being given to us on Wednesday, Brian decided to tow his car and a small UHaul out to Tucson. So we spent Tuesday loading it up.

Our dining room

An Empty truck

Several hours later we deemed it necessary to reward ourselves with an ice cold beer. Let me tell you, it never tasted so good!

We have about 3/4 of the house left to load and pack, well, maybe less but it certainly feels like a lot. I just hope we all make it in one piece. And I don't even want to think about unpacking!

I know how you feel, all too well. It really does suck, but the bedt thing about moving is you get to get rid of all osrts of crap and think of new ways to organize. It's a fresh start and I love having a fresh start! We will bring you some cookies and wine (although I don't drink or buy wine so I will need some help) and then you will have an excuse to take a break. Don't worry, you can do it!!

So I must be weird, because I LOVE moving!!!! I get to clean out all the stuff we really don't use and then get to move into and decorate a "new" home. I just hate the actual MOVING things in/ out of the truck. On the bright side it is not so hot here yet, AND we are ALL sooooooo happy to have you coming home: )

Well, at least there are about five or six unpacked boxes done already by the unpacking fairy ;)There will be more!
