Moving-Part 1 was accomplished yesterday. Jon got a Uhaul and we had a few people help in loading and unloading the contents of our home. Wow, is it ever strange moving into a smaller house. At least half the stuff that came out of the truck remains in limbo in the garage (although, some of it will go down to the basement next week after the carpet's installed). And all the furniture and rugs inside just look huge! So there will have to be a lot of rearranging and finagling to get everything into its proper place. I was at the point yesterday afternoon where I was just so overwhelmed and exhausted, I didn't see how it was all going to get done, but thankfully, after last night, everything's at the new house except our beds, the contents of our closets and bathroom, some food in the fridge and pantry and Bennett's toys (the bare necessities of surviving in this house for another couple of days!). I'm not sure what Bennett's going to do without watching "The Wonder Pets" for two days. He's so obsessed with that show but thank the Lord we're blessed with beautiful weather right now so that shouldn't be a problem! We're scheduled to move everything else and be sleeping in our new house Monday night. I'm not looking forward to tackling all those boxes but I definitely prefer the unpacking to the packing. Hopefully Bennett can spend a little more time at Nana and Poppy's (Jon's parents-- mine are in Florida for the week!) so I can get a good dent made in the mountain of cardboard.
This will be our fourth home in our 6 1/2 years of marriage. Hopefully we don't continue with that trend. Although there's absolutely no better solution for getting rid of the junk in your house!
