7 Days and Counting

Move Date is January 25th!  One week away.  There is so much to do between now and then but we are looking good.  Harley has been cleared to fly and thus far the weather is going to cooperate for him to get on the plane.  (It needs to be at least 25 degrees for him to fly according to the vet).  I only have the kids closets left to go through, otherwise I have gone through all our junk, I mean stuff.... and have purged quite a bit.  I am pretty sure I cut our stuff in the basement by at least half.  I love to see those trash pages and boxes ready to be donated leaving my house!

The boys are officially done with school as they tracked off this last Wednesday.  Nana is doing her best to squeeze in one last visit before we leave and entertain them while Charley and I finish out our last 3 days.  I am surprisingly caught up on my grading and will finalize my grades before leaving school Thursday afternoon.  I have started cleaning out my classroom and will hopefully been done with that on Tuesday.  A new teacher has been hired and hopefully I will get to meet with her before heading off.

The movers arrive Friday morning to get the house packed up (so grateful someone else is doing the heavy work this time around!).  The truck gets loaded Saturday and we fly off Saturday night.  The kids are all off having one last day of fun with their friends and cousins here and I am home with a quiet house.  I can't remember the last time the house was quiet on a Saturday afternoon!

Ronny has been in Texas since the first of the year and has thus far enjoyed his new job.  We are anxious to reunite and be a family again.  Our van made it safely there this week so Ronny will be able to pick us up from the airport when we get in.  It will be nice to have him there to coral the kids and dog as it will be midnight when the flight touches down and I expect we will be all tired and on edge at that point.

The bishop called this morning and asked Charley and I to speak tomorrow.  Just what I needed!  Looks like we have one more hoop to jump through so that is what I'll be doing tonight.  We love our ward here though so if they want to hear from us one last time then we are happy to serve.  We will surely miss everyone here but knowing we will visit often tempers that hurt just a little.
