Are We There Yet?
Only this time, it's me asking this question instead of the kids!
With 12 days left until our departure, we've officially come to "crunch time". There are black plastic trunks all through our house. Each labeled with it's weight and contents. Now, we're down to only 3 trunks left to fill but we have enough stuff to fill another 10! I though I had been doing good throwing stuff away. But it looks like I need to do better.
Two weeks ago, Michael and I bought a little storage shed to hold our "treasures" that we can't take with us. We put it together behind my Mom's house in raining 30 degree weather. After two days of assembling, drying it out and filling it with our things, it exploded in a strong wind storm less than a week later. So now, my "treasures" are homeless, we're exhausted, and the fun is just beginning!
