The Great Adjustment: day one

the movers showed up at 7:55am. come on, we were up past one trying to purge our stuff. and purge we did, bags and bags of purge. i'm so tired i can't even think. haven't eaten anything yet {unless you count the fig newmans}, trying to avoid getting in the way. did a little work this morning and as soon as they're gone i'll be off to the post office to mail the last etsy order for a while and grab some food before i gnaw my fingers off. still have to make a couple of goodwill trips.

they're about done, but seeing all these boxes makes me think, for the millionth time this week, that we have too much stuff...it's a chilly and gray day, seems appropriate to me.

we've got a full car load of stuff to take with us tomorrow. i need a nap, moving stinks. i can't wait to get to brooklyn and settle in. the sun just came out, things are looking up, maybe i should order a pizza...

ACK..do you realize this means for the first time in roughly 7+ years we will not live within 45 mins of each other?!?!

I'm thinking of you guys and praying for you. I know this move is going to bring good thing- no, strike that- GREAT things to you and J!!

I'm sorry we didn't get together for one more dinner, but you bet your butt I'll be dragging you up here to take pics of my newly expanded family for our Christmas cards!

GOOD LUCK!!!

Movers are meanie butts. 7:55. Sheesh. Moving really does help us see how much is too much...so it can be a good thing. If only it weren't so painful!
Hope the rest of it goes well. Still praying. :o)

I've never really had a big move-we had practically nothing when we moved in here from Danny's parent's basement, and now we have filled it up. And I lived in the same house all growing up (which my parents just moved from about 3 weeks ago, sob, sob, sob.) Anyway, I have no idea what's it's like, but then I look around and see all our STUFF. Yikes! How will you ever fit your stuff into a tiny apartment? I must say I do not envy you, but I will pray for you!
