Scenes from the move

We had a very productive four day weekend (ah the perks of BL working for a Catholic University). We managed to get a whole lot more accomplished than I really thought we would considering everything was down around MR's schedule. The POD was dropped off late last week and we have just been packing as we can and transferring the boxes into the container when they are ready. It's incredibly convenient, kudos to whoever came up with this great idea.

We still have an enormous amount of stuff to sift through and dispose of. I am determined to purge all unnecessary belongings before we move, whether that sends those items to the dump or Goodwill I just don't want to pack along things that will remain packed and stored away in our new location. I feel the need to clean.

It's incredibly gratifying to see our house starting to empty around us. The walls have lost their frames, and the shelves (along with their contents) have been packed away in the POD. All of this means that we are getting closer to getting out of here. Hallelujah.

Hey, thanks for stopping by! That was the first time she'd fallen asleep in the jumper and I just thought it was hilarious.

I love the second picture of your boy looking at the camera, btw. He's very cute. :)

Congrats on getting so much taken care of so quickly! I understand what you mean about cleaning out before a move. It's so cathartic. Those PODS do look pretty cool.
