packing up our home
Tuesday, June 23, 2009
It is finally here! Our family move to Birmingham, Alabama. The packers arrive tomorrow and turn our home into a cardboard-box-castle. I think by tomorrow night all that will be left to remind us of our home are the beds. Technically, we will be without a place to call home until next Wednesday. We are thankful that the in-between homes time is 5 days instead of 5 weeks (or months).
My girls are 5 and almost 3 - they keep checking with me to make sure that ALL of their toys are coming with us. The oldest asked yesterday why we have to move. I told her so we can be with daddy and see him everyday (he has been in Alabama working since October). She says, "Mom, when daddy goes out of town for work, can we come back here and see my friends?" Breaks your heart. Thankfully we are only 3 hours away and have already planned a visit in August to celebrate my daughter's 3rd birthday party here in Nashville.
The precious polka dot homes painting is handmade by Kelly of Initialee. She is in Birmingham..and I think this painting will be making its way to our new kitchen wall very soon. :)
Today I am shipping the last of my orders and packing up all the little things in my office. The movers warned me that "all little things will be thrown in the bottom of a box" when they are packing the house tomorrow. And all of my 100-yard spools of ribbon need to come down off my giant pegboard so hubby can remove that from the wall for them too. So many rules.
I'll check in this weekend with you!
