THE MOVE - Part 1

So, it all started yesterday.... I started that dreadful thing called, packing. Since the kids are at my sister's house, 12 hours away, I was able to trash anything I wanted to! That, I have to say, was wonderful! I ended up dragging 4 large, black trash bags out to the curb by 7:oo pm! I sorted Ninja Turtles (Yes, Deb, he still has Corey's turtles!), Power Rangers, Littlest Pet Shops and super hero toys until I couldn't tell a Rafael from The Incredible Hulk! But, I am happy to say, at least for the three weeks the kids are gone, they will stay sorted into their appropriately marked bins:)

My good friend, Lara, knowing that I'm a big chicken (Rusty was in Atlanta for the night) and that I'm too ADD to actually pack alone.... offered to come stay the night with me! What a friend!!! So, we were up at 8:30 this morning, and started packing away... I am completely amazed at all that we accomplished in one day..... Lara, you rock sister!! Love you :)

Here is a picture of the dining room with all the boxes we boxes we brought down stairs today!

you're doing great! I'd offer to help, but then your toy bins would be a disaster again after my kids got ahold of them=)
