hello family and friends. We have officially left Orlando and reside in Ocala. :) We moved on June 27th. We had so much help along the way. Daniel has been in Ocala full time for 2 weeks. That leaves me and kids to pack the house. As you can imagine...the kids weren't very helpful. :) I had started packing long ago. I had many of my wonderful MOPS friends bring me dinner 2 times a week for the WHOLE month of June. How amazing was that? It was so helpful. I also had several playgroups and friends come over to help pass the day. When Daniel is not around the days are all the same. Nothing really changes. No one comes home at night, we don't have a day off together...it gets boring. Especially now that Daisy is out of school. :) When the time got closer to the move, we had Shelley and Jen Russell come and help us pack and keep the kids from unpacking. Jen even went up in our attic to pull things out to move. What a friend! :) Then Aunt Judy and my mom came before the move too. They packed, they cleaned, the kept the kids entertained...it was awesome. I really really needed the help! :) Saturday morning the movers showed up (AAA Insta-move to be exact. Hey, they were cheap. And thankfully not much was broken...and nothing stollen.) The move went smoothly and it was a long hard day. Mom, Judy, and Dan worked HARD unpacking and so on. I was not sleeping well so I was tired and not feeling well. They pulled thru in a MAJOR way. The kids enjoyed running a muck and unpacking whatever they could get their little paws on. Then 3 days later mom, the kids and I loaded up and flew to AR for the rest of the week. Stay tuned for those details. :)
The pics below are not in order. I am being lazy and can't find my cordless mouse. So out of order it is. :)
I had about 8 boxes labeled this way (above). Its inevitable that at the very end of getting out of a house you have some "catch all" boxes or crap boxes. They are so random...and many times hold things of importance that you were using till the very end. It took me DAYS to find my salt and pepper shakers. Sheesh.
Thought this was a funny basket...clock, shower curtain, toy bin, and some clothes underneath. BTW...why are clocks ALWAYS on 10:10 in pictures? I didn't do this on purpose...but if you look at clock/watch ads you will see what I mean! :)
Out of order--this is Dan and I in front of his new office!! :) WOO HOO! Dan is the MAN!
Back to the move: this is Isaac eating a sandwich that was not finished at lunch...that sat on the table...till 5 when he decided to eat it. Niiiiice.
This was my last MNO with my Orlando MOPS friend. Cathy, Cheri, Dena, Kristin, Deb, Jayme, and Heather @ CPK. I miss you gals!!!
