In preparation for the move I have been spending hours sorting, packing and cleaning. FINALLY the time has arrived for us to start packing up the van to head north!! I'm excited, can you tell?
I can't say it came too soon. You know the feeling that something will never get done? A college paper perhaps, a project or a painfully long day? Multiply that feeling times a million and you have an idea about how anxious I am to get out of town and settled :)
Aaron (the hubster) embraces change like a champ, me on the other hand not so much. I embrace it kicking and screaming. I know change is good, it is healthy and an inevitable part of life but it causes me a certain degree of stress. I like things in order, tidy and just so (if you know what I mean) so my messy and disorganized house is feeling a bit like a burden these last few days in Tennessee. It will be interesting to see my type A personality take a hit after living with two men, a very busy three year old and a my sister, who is... let's say a little less organized ha ha.
Here are a few photos of the beginning process of our packing the van (which seemed TOO SMALL in the beginning, talk about stressful). My in-laws were in town for a family friend's wedding so it worked out beautifully to have them here to help out. God works everything out, I was not looking forward to helping Aaron move the heavy furniture after a toe smashing incident earlier this year when we got our first dryer... but that is a story for another time ;)
