Pack 'em Up and Move 'em Out

It is packing week!

That brings good news and bad news.

The good news is that sometime in the late hours of Saturday, we'll be home! In Phoenix! And we'll stay there (well, minus a ton of interview travel -- mostly Charles -- and normal things like visiting family for a long weekend or whatever) until after Charles' graduation in June! Our own beds, kitchens, closets (I'm seriously itching to do a big, fat purge).

That bad news is that this week is going to be insane. Repacking all of our stuff (for the last time!). Cleaning. Cleaning. More cleaning.

On top of it, Charles has an interview with the program here on Thursday, plus a pre-interview dinner Wednesday night. That, of course, brings with it interview stress and nerves and thinking such pleasant thoughts as, "What is my biggest failure? How did I learn from it?"

Then we get to drive umpteen million miles home. Avec baby and pregnant lady. Always fun.  To get to a place with decidedly higher temperatures. Boo!

All of which means, I probably won't touch the blog again until next Monday.  But don't worry. I'll be back. (Pretend I said that Arnold-style.)

One cute baby for the road.

  1. Packing a few days before the actual move sounds quite stressful. Let me guess, your house looks like a tornado came through. Haha! Jokes aside, good luck with the move! Make sure you pack your valuables securely!


Comments happen, too. I'd love to hear yours.
