I'll be packing up the computer very soon, so it's au revoir for a little while. I'll do my best to be back online in about a week. Mwah!

It's a new day

Sorry for the mini freak-out yesterday about the boxes. They're closing in on me, yes, but it's not like this is the first time I've ever moved. And it's not like my bedroom hasn't had one wall covered by a row of boxes ever since I moved in to this apartment :P It was mostly that, after packing soooooo many of them lately, I made a list of each and every one of them for that CBP form that I have to fill out. Then I started thinking about all the other boxes in storage and I started having a little meltdown. But it's probably not a big deal, I don't think anyone read my post yesterday anyway ;) Whew!

Lots of boxes.

Lots and lots of boxes.

Why are there so many boxes?

Can I just label them all "miscellaneous"?



I know the theory behind a successful move is to label each box meticulously but that's just not working for me. If I have a box of kitchen type stuff and it's almost full but there's a space at the top where one of Christa's stuffed bears will fit perfectly, I'm gonna throw that sucker in there. And I am still going to write "kitchen type stuff" on the outside.

I need to have a list of everything ready for the CBP people. Every box must be counted and accounted for and the value of everything is needed as well. I did this in September, so you'd think it would be easy to redo, right? Hahaha, you're not really going to agree with that, are you? Okay, we've established that it's a mess and I am doing my best to amend the old list to accurately reflect what I have now. Fun fun fun.

I love moving, once it's over.

Oh, and I must specify about the Shreddies from my last post, I bought the "mega" size boxes, the biggest I could find, 1.6 kg (whatever that translates to in real numbers) each. They should last me for a good amount of time, then I'll be bugging my parents and all my Canadian contacts for more.

No fanfare

Just sneaking back in for a long overdue post. Man, time slips by quickly. It's been a busy month and some, just haven't had time for the fun stuff in life. Well, this fun stuff in particular was one thing that kept getting put off. I've still managed to have fun with my kids. Priorites ;)

Moving day is almost here, we pack up the truck on Monday the 30th and leave town the next day. Matt will meet us in Vancouver so we can brave the border together. Praying that whatever CBP personnel are on that day are in a good mood! We really don't want to be told to unload the entire uhaul and open every box for inspection!!

So I'll be in the US soon. It's going to be strange, and I will miss
Shreddies. I have 7 boxes, thinking maybe I should be okay for a little while.
