Moving Day

Things have been pretty quiet on here (on the blog--certainly not in my house!) this week as we get ready to (once again) pack up all our belongings and move into a new home. The difference is...we will be STAYING FOR A LONG TIME. Mark my words. Read my lips. And, of course, reference this post when I call to tell you Keith has been transferred again. Perish the thought!

Moving has to be one of the most stressful events in your life. To think about packing all of our things up, loading it into a vehicle, driving it 5 short minutes from here and unloading it and setting it all back up. Ugh.

BUT-- the bright side (gotta look for that, don't we?) is that it is a chance to organize, clean out and start afresh in a new place, right? Right. Right-o. I will keep telling myself that. Maybe that will help me not have a breakdown this weekend while a 9-month old walks around pulling up on fragile boxes and yanking the leaves off of plants and a 6-year old whines because, well because he can. All this and a conference coming up in 3+ weeks. Oh my good gracious.

Have I mentioned I want a boring life? REALLY. I do. It just never seems to work out that way.

That photo of Jacob is so adorable. He's certainly grown into a handsome young tyke. Hope the move goes as smoothly as possible.

A friend of mine moved recently, and I was asked to help her pack. I confess, I just couldn't do it! Seriously, our own move - and the trauma of it all - is still too fresh in my own mind. Moving is stressful in so, so many ways. My thoughts are with you guys - and congrats on the house!!

Hope things go smoothly for you guys, I HATE moving, it's almost as bad as having the flu! But at least you have a positive outlook on it. And moving with children is even a bigger challenge, hopefully the boys will cooperate and this will go by quicker then you think. And this move will soon be a distant memory.
Can't wait to come and visit and see the new house, from what we have seen already, I LOVE it!

Gosh - I can't imagine moving with Blair...not that I'd ever dream of moving without her, just can't imaging the wrinkle that would throw in. Glad it's going smoothly! And I love the pictures of the boys - very handsome fellows!
