Count down is on

Believe it or not tomorrow is exactly 7 days to our move.

I can’t believe our move is just around the corner and we have so much to do. Thankfully we have been packing slowly since the house sold. Also a few Saturday’s ago I cleaned out the garage and took a truck load to the dump.

There are boxes all over the house, some full and taped up and other empty waiting to be filled. Still others that were given to us to borrow–durable plastic. De-Ann is planning on filling them with the kitchen items, food, cleaning products, etc. That way we can empty them first and return the boxes. Thank you Gary and Patti. You’re too kind.

Tomorrow I am going to move all the packed boxes upstairs and clean out the basement so the movers don’t have to go downstairs. My goal is to have all boxes in the playroom on the main level to make the move really straightforward and simple. That way the only things upstairs will be furniture.

Even as I am typing De-Ann is packing all the fragile things–vases, bottles, jars, etc. I think we are going to take these boxes to the house ourselves. We have had too many things break in past moves. I guess that saying “once bitten twice shy” does apply to our moves.

I was just thinking about how many times we have moved as a couple and now as a family. I can’t believe this is going to be our seventh move and our fourth house move! Crazy eh?! Now time to stop blogging and start packing. See ya tomorrow in my next post.
