  • Booked movers
  • Got packing/moving materials
  • Have new tenant for NY apartment (80% sure)
  • Trying to stick to our new healthy eating lifestyle, though the stress does not help
  • Purged lots and lots of clothes, books, cd's, furniture
  • Sorted through storage closets
  • Backed up computer

  • Organize and pack some more
  • Look into preschool for Hazel
  • Schedule massive Salvation Army pick-up
  • Wash the last week's worth of dishes
  • Figure out and schedule cable/internet/utilities hook-up at new house
  • Cancel cable/internet/utilities at current place
  • Change address with bank, companies and subscriptions
  • Keep up with blog so people don't lose interest
  • Finish Things I'll Miss and Things I Won't Miss blog post drafts
  • Of course order my new return address stamp and possibly mommy cards if I can take them seriously enough (tell me which one on the page you like)
  • Put together a class sharing time presentation with my church primary class

Yay! You found a place -- and you love it! Can't wait to hear all about it! :)

What I did to help myself feel like things were getting done during our move, was make sure that I did at least one thing from the list every day. Often it ended up being something smaller than I had planned, but even if it was the smallest/easiest thing on the list, at least that was one last thing to do. Best of luck with the move!

You totally need mommy cards. I need them. Wow, they are cute. I like rose petal, birdie green, and sarah anguilo.

We won't lose interest no matter how long you go between posts.

Anything else I can do for the goody bags? Let me know if I need to get stuff from Oriental Trading.

Where is the new place?

And that "need to do list" is totally incomplete!

We're renting a house in Arlington near Route 50 & S. George Mason Drive. Ed can catch a bus at Rte 50 that's a 10-15 minute straight shot into Rosslyn where his office is.

I may be a bit strange, but I think living that close to the cemetery would be nice. I love visting there, it is just nice to walk the grounds and feel the spirit of the place, not to mention it once belonged to Robert E. Lee.
