A funny thing happens on the way to a MOVE...

Ok, we hired a mover, but "we" are packing ourselves. I took the week off work to pack. Poor Nashtaters went to camp while momma was at home, and I feel SO bad about that. I never, ever, thought I would be the kind of mom that would put her child in daycare, much less when I was at home!

Ok, back to the other stress issue; moving. Guess what, haven't heard from nearly a (local) family member all week! Even my mom bailed! She lives 10 minutes away and doesn't work. But hey, there are cocktails flowing with my sister tonight about 2 miles away........don't blame them- well maybe a little....

It comes with the territory; moving creates stess and distances friends and family. May we reconvene in the new hot tub/deck/bar area in the new house soon

Packing and cleaning is about as fun as having a root canal (but I'm sure I don't have to tell you!) Hope you get to treat YOURSELF to some cocktails soon! Enjoy your new place - it sounds heavenly!!!

The actual moving part is the pits. But the 'we moved' part with the new house and neighborhood will make it all worth while.

And that cocktail idea sounds really good right now! lol!

Can I come too....and if I were close enough, I'd help you pack [I would, I really would!]

So that hot-tub/bar/deck sounds absolutely delightful!!!!
