This week
Packing up an entire house is not fun. I have yet to meet the person who exclaims, "Oh, I lovvvve packing all my belongings into boxes!" Maybe those people exist, I don't know. I am not one of them. Thank goodness the excited anticipation of moving makes up for the pain of packing. We finished packing our kitchen this week and I think it's safe to say that is the worst room in the house to pack. All those fragile dishes to wrap and protect. All those odd shaped kitchen appliances to fit into a box. And mixing bowls! Don't even get me started. They take up so much room and then you can't fit anything else around them! 

A moment I want to remember
Our house only has air conditioning in the bedroom at the moment so packing up the rest of the house in ninety-degree weather has been funnnnnnn. After a particularly hot evening, we took some Chinese food down to Pony Pastures to watch the sun set and cool off a bit. It was the perfect way to unwind and soak in a view that we're really going to miss.

A plan for the weekend
After listening to me pacing around the house, repeating "There's no way it's all going to fit!" Mark finally called and reserved a larger moving truck. I'm lovingly referring to it as The Beast because it is huge! We're driving it to Georgia this weekend. Wish us luck!
