Moving Day

I can't believe it. My brother came to town to help me move a few things, and when I got off work Tuesday, he, Laurie, and Kate had moved nearly everything in. Even the really heavy stuff—washer, dryer, armoire, buffet. THANK YOU!

And now, I have a lot of work to do. Am I finished painting, you ask? Why no. No I'm not.


I was in such a daze when we packed up back in June that I'd forgotten my sister was doing everything she could to make me smile. I do remember that her box labels were hysterically funny to both of us. Even our mom, who would normally STILL swat our behinds for using vulgar language, laughed.



Yeah, I'm not planning to cook for awhile.


My brother and Kate made a pit stop at Wal-Mart. I came home to all this loot + a Bed, Bath & Beyond gift card. Shucks. My family rocks!

We had to laugh at what we could cause moving is no fun...hope the unpacking goes fast...like before Friday night. I guess your brother doesn't come around too often but when he does, he makes it count. Laurie doesn't want to be available for the next move!!! I don't know how I got excused for this one.

Wow, your sister has incredibly neat handwriting.

When we moved apartments a year and a half ago I was to the point that I was writing "Crap" on the boxes to describe the contents.

I can't believe that you asked me if I needed help...I should be helping you paint! If you haven't finished painting by Nov. 23 then I'll be over to help.

Funny, Leah. Her handwriting looks just like yours!
