12 hours to M-Day

Okay. Most of our rental house is packed up. All that remains is...oh, alright, a lot. But there's only so much I can do with both kids running around at the same time.

They helped re-pack the box of spices, though (the first box got a soggy bottom while sitting in the basement), with Ben tossing the little half-bottles in like softballs.

Tomorrow I'm hoping that our volunteer from church, Jeff, will bring a few members from his football team to help us move the "big stuff" in the morning. Mom will have the kids all day, at my insistence. NO, we do not need your help moving this time! Take a break and enjoy your grandkids.

Here's where I start to believe (a tiny bit) in karma: Jeff is the guy Aaron was playing against when he hurt his knee in the first place. So now I'm hoping that guilt is a good motivator.

If all goes as planned, we should be set up at "the new house" and be sleeping there tomorrow night. I don't know when we'll have our Internet set up, so maybe I should write a few posts ahead, just in case....well, we'll see.

Poor Aaron worked all weekend, and hasn't been home all day. Let's hope he gets a good night's rest, or tomorrow will be even more of a challenge.

Looks like sunny skies with just enough wind to give the mosquitos a workout tomorrow.

Hopefully the varsity team takes the field for you in the morning so you don't have to call in the less-than-buff B-teamers such as myself in the fourth quarter ;-)

I can't wait to see the new place! I haven't done a drive-by yet, but will have to do it soon now that you gave us the address.

In the event that a reader doesn't have grandkids to enjoy and the wife and kids are out, is it OK to enjoy the cat?

There is a rumor that Lyz started following a cookie crumb trail out of the kitchen of the new house and is now missing and lost in the vast carpeted expanse of the new hacienda. She could have followed the trail back to friends and loved ones if only she hadn't been vacuuming the crumbs as she went. Good thing they relocated the black bear that had been roaming in South Fargo last week.

Noel said...

Good news. Lyz was spotted at "The Truth of Ruth" blog at 9:07 PM where Ruth had left a link on her latest post for Lyz to find her way home.

Isn't cyberspace wonderful...

Lyz said...

Well, I had to get a recommendation on the proper vacuum for those cookie crumbs! (from Noel's wife!)

Thanks to those of you who have helped us out in any way...even just be asking how we are doing. It is appreciated!
