Another Long Rambling Post

Moving is a lot of work. Moving to a different country triples that work and makes the days fly by. Between passport photos, parent teacher conferences and appointments I don’t think we’ve had one day on our calendar that hasn’t had the square filled with things to do.

This weekend is our last one in this house. We’ve got a million things to go through and tons of planning to do. We’ve got to separate our things into what we’re packing to take on our trip to Oklahoma and subsequent flight across the Pacific Ocean, what we’re having express shipped out there, and what is going in the big shipment of all of the rest of our stuff. TMO (the movers) will pick up the express shipment on the 9th.

Next weekend we’re headed up to another Hackworth clan member’s house for a chicken stew and general lazing about. It promises to be a good, picture filled time. Then on the 13th and 14th the rest of our stuff gets packed and sent off. On the 15th we close on the house and on the 16th we’re off to Columbia, SC through Thanksgiving. Anyone want to go Black Friday shopping with me?

So that’s what is going on with us right now. There’s all the usual issues going on such as area clearance packages being turned in but not getting submitted, but nothing that has had me pulling out what little non-grey hair I have left.

    I am SO there for Black Friday. Had a BLAST last year and anticipate another great one this year!!! Also, I think we should do another chick flick. There’s this huge shopping area near my parents house with Old Navy, TJMax, and all kinds of AMAZING places. Can’t wait to see everyone!

    That sounds like an insane amount of work. But it also sounds like you’ve got it pretty under control. Be safe and enjoy your time before you leave. Looking forward to the updates!

    Sure are going to miss you guys. Are you going to be able to keep in touoch with us from Japan? Sounds so dang far away. Actually it is.. Sure would like to see the kiddos grow up since we have watched for most of their lives already. Have very safe travels and enjoy whatever life brings your way. At least you will have the whole family together…. Stay Safe
