And our stuff keeps crawling out of the corners...

So slow...it is going so slowly...crawling, really --almost a snail's pace. But the hardest part is almost behind me. "And what," you might ask, "is the hardest part?" (So far. I should add "so far" because it may not be the hardest part at this point!)

Answer: PURGING

Purging is good because we get rid of lots of junk. Junk we don't want to haul across the deserts of Nevada in a slow truck. Junk I wish I would have gotten rid of years ago, but hid in corners instead. Junk that is another man's treasure. I am now DI's favorite donater; I think I've given about 3 van fulls already -- and that doesn't include the furniture! Ooooh...so much DI furniture to give back to DI. Yes, it really does come full circle... But purging is hard because it takes so long and nobody can help me do it. I have to decide on my own what I want and don't want; the RS sisters can't make those decisions for me, you know?

I have DH for one more day. We'll get a ton finished tomorrow, I know it. I know it because we have to... :)

OH! And for those that are interested the timeline is as follows:
Saturday the 3rd: Load up the truck!! All the way! To the top! And then clean the house like crazy.
Sunday the 4th: Bless #4 in our Sacrament Meeting, have the family luncheon at the Townhome clubhouse nearby, and then by 6PM we're hitting the road!! Good-bye, sweet Provo...
Monday the 5th: Finish driving and get to Concord. Yay!

I really can't believe you're leaving Provo. It boggles my mind. Of the Wahs, I thought for sure you and your DH would be there the longest. Guess D and S beat you out!

But hey, we're in CA pretty often! You wouldn't happen to have a spare bedroom in that new house or yours, would you? :) JK!

Wow, I seriously can't believe how fast this is all happening. I would be a basket case. I wish I could help with the move. And Happy late Birthday! I hope you got our message yesterday. I love you!
