On Saturday, Eric and Kelli came over and helped us pack/move all day. Our big move is still in another week and a half, but we wanted to get some stuff cleaned out, and we wanted to get the guest bed moved over to the new house. Eric and Landon moved heavy stuff all day, and Kelli helped me pack all day. It was exhausting! My mom said that Eric and Kelli help us with stuff so much we should pay for them to go on a vacation. HA! They are AWESOME friends, and they help us with a lot of stuff...so...if we could pay for them to go on a vacation....Eric and Kelli, I would pay for it!! I would send you on a cruise to wherever you want to go - you choose the destination! Anyway, here are Landon and Eric....carrying a bed down one of the steep flights of steps in our townhouse.
And, here's Kelli - we were packing in mine and Landon's bedroom. This box has all my shoes...plus the sweatband Kelli is wearing. Nice look, huh? She was probably sweating a lot because I kept turning the heat back up....but I promise i tried to leave it down most of the time!!
There's still a lot more to move, but the upstairs is pretty much packed and almost gone. And, the basement room is gone. I've packed some of the kitchen, but not all of it, and haven't packed anything else in the living room. I do think we've probably done the bulk of it, but it still feels so overwhelming!
A side note. We have to buy a mailbox. Our house does not have one (doesn't it always seems like there are little issues?). We have looked at Lowe's for a mailbox. Well, all the ones we like are enormous ones. I thought this one below was hilarious. What if you drove past someone's house and saw this mailbox, just like not a business, but in front of a residence? It has a lock and key. I think this would be the crazy funniest mailbox to buy.
That's it! I'll keep you posted with the moving/packing/being overwhelmed situation.
