moving day!

not our u-haul, but still a tad funny.
it's finally here.
friday. friday is moving day. today nathan and i worked a short day and then headed to pick up the me-haul truck. once we picked it up, we made a few stops here in town for some furniture pieces that we had picked out. we came home and loaded up about 40 boxes, the couch, table, lanna's room and some other stuff. i'd say half of the place is in the truck and we have another hour (maybe 2) or so tomorrow to get the rest in. the crappy part is hauling the boxes from the attic down. NOT looking forward to that. however...bring it on! we will get our call tomorrow to come sign our life away again and then we will get the keys. we wanted to have the truck filled, so we can immediately drive there and mark out territory. pee on the grass? what? no! nothing like that. maybe spit on the sidewalk.

lanna will be in school, so we hope to get a great deal done before we have to go get her. we have things to pick up like locks for the garage, shutters for the garage and a mailbox. we will still come back here and check the mail until march 31st. however we have activated the 'change of address' with the usps already. rest assured, mail will find me. (aunt doreen, your card came today and THANK YOU!!!) lanna's school is just a few blocks from here, so we will be in and out until the end of the month. last minute cleaning...things like that. ok, off to bed. i have a big day tomorrow with it being the first day of spring and all...:)

You scared me. I saw the little thunbnail on my blogger dashboard and thought you'd rolled your moving van!
Good luck and CONGRATULATIONS! You'll have a special package there before you know it. Yay! I get to send the first piece of mail. :)

oh how exciting!!! moving is horrid, but once you get everything unloaded from the van/truck, you will be so relieved and be ready to get on with the good.

hope it goes well!

Oh yes, HAPPY SPRING! Knowing how your day went today, it's safe for me to say- Sorry it didn't go as well as you planned... keep your chin up! I wish I could be there to help you, it's killing me to stay here and think of you guys all by yourselves!!!

packing those last few boxes are the WORST- it's just all crap stuff that you can't toss but doesn't have a home.
We'll be thinking of you this weekend- hope you get a chance to rest! Good luck!
