Well, we worked hard all weekend, and everything is ready for the packers. We got rid of everything in our house that wasn't beautiul, useful or of sentimental value. When our stuff is finally delivered from storage it will be only our very best and most loved things. It's a relief to know we won't be unpacking and finding places for any junk.
Today is a big day around here. The packers are coming between 8:30 AM and 9:30 AM to start boxing up all our stuff. Things should go really smoothly since we are so well prepared. Even though it is nice not to have to pack ourselves, watching packers is still a big job. They will literally pack EVERYTHING in your house that isn't nailed down because the military pays them by the pound, so you have to carefully organize and watch carefully.
We've found the best way to avoid problems with packers is to take all the things you DON'T want packed and put them all together in one room that has nothing you DO want packed. Usually the master bathroom is the best place for this, but this time we are using the office/scraproom because we won't have access to the bulk of our belonging for at least three months. So there is a lot more stuff we are taking ourselves on this move than on previous moves. Wish me luck!
Today is Monday, but I am not able to host our regular Monday Night show on my channel since most of my stuff is in boxes. Laura Denison from Following the Paper Trail has graciously offered to guest host for me, so there will still be entertainment tonight! She is having a pajama party tonight for all the football widows. I have even heard rumors that there may be prizes involved. Shh!
