Well, okay, I'm not leaving on a jet plane, it is more like a really, really loaded down Chevy Suburban, but I am leaving, nonetheless. My bags are packed, and LOTS and LOTS of boxes! The packers came yesterday, and began packing up our entire house. When you see the contents of every drawer, cabinet and nook and cranny all being packed into boxes, you realize just how much junk you really have! So, here you all are my witnesses, I WILL THROW AWAY SOME OF THIS CRAP when I get to California. I have entirely too much stuff.
So, the packers came yesterday morning and they are almost finished packing up all of our boxes. The moving truck actually comes on Thursday and will load up all of our worldly goods and head toward the West Coast!
We are staying at a hotel this week while we are being packed up and moving. My husband (of whom I am very proud) is graduating from school tomorrow. He has spent the last year at Marine Corps University taking an advanced Master's degree course, and now he is finished. I lay awake last night thinking about trying to blog our adventure of THE BIG MOVE. So, I will try my best.
I was busy trying to finish up a few last minute Sweet Funky Vintage orders this morning. The packers were literally packing up my studio all around my while I sewed! Liz will be keeping things running smoothly while my studio is disassembled!
Most of this part of the packing/moving process involves me supervising the packers and the packing process. Which involves alot of sitting around and waiting. So, I have been catching up on a little internet surfing, checking email, etc, this afternoon. I have been wanting to sit down and watch the video of Randy Pausch's last lecture. He is the Carnagie Mellon professor they profiled in Parade magazine and on many news programs over the past few months. It sounded interesting and my Mom said it was wonderful, so I have been wanting to watch it, but hadn't found the time to sit down, uninterrupted and watch it. Since the girls are visiting Nana and Poppy this week and I am basically sitting around supervising some very efficient packers (who need little supervision), I finally watched it. I have to tell you it was definately worth the time it took to watch. I think the video is roughly an hour and 15 minutes. If you haven't seen it yet, here it is.
and here is another clip, this one is only 6 minutes long. My Mom sent it to me the other day and said she believed I had found my passion and my love and I thought that was the ultimate compliment.
I have also been working on improving my vocabulary on the website, Free Rice. If you haven't tested your brain power over there, I highly recommend it. Liz told me about ages ago and I have just gotten my husband hooked too! We got to level 46 today! How high have you gotten?
Okay, so here is installment one of THE BIG MOVE! Join me on the rest of the journey!
