The Countdown Begins

The move to the farm is now less than a week away.  I confess, I really expected to have more packing done at this point, and I am a little freaked out at the thought of the week ahead.

On the other hand, the nice movers we hired have promised to pack everything, soooo… maybe it will be fine?

After weeks of really miserable cold, this weekend the weather was SO nice that I ended up RIDING instead of packing. Riding is never the wrong choice, right?  And my little JJ was wonderful – light and forward and happy to be out there working with me.  He is such a joy.  Totally worth the splurge of time, but now there are a bunch of empty boxes I had really planned to have full by now.

Our plan at this point is to get a U-Haul on Wednesday, fill it with the basic stuff we need for our first few nights on Thursday and then take it over to the farm after we close on Friday afternoon.  We have back to back closings on Friday, so after we’re done with the second one, we’ll load up the pets and the stuff we need for the first few days and get it moved.  The movers will come on Saturday to do the heavy lifting, and then … because calendar challenges are my specialty, that evening we will got to our GMO year end banquet.  Yep.  Perfect timing, really.

I really thought I would be better prepared for this week.  It is also the week.from.h*ll at work (because did I mention calendar challenges were my specialty?) it is year end for us too.  Sigh.  But I am sure it will all work out.  It has to, because I have to be back on the road pretty soon, and so it all has to get done.   I still don’t really have a great plan for where all our stuff is going to go in the new house.  It is so different from our current place and the scale of the rooms is wildly different.  I suppose we will just have to figure it out when we get there!
