Day 12: the move, day one

Thanks everyone for your comments yesterday. I did attempt to blog yesterday, but my camera cord and computer were at different houses.  So this is yesterday.  Our move went in reverse.  It was a little embarrassing, because we looked hoarders, what with stuff everywhere.  But I think it accomplished our purpose of keeping the house show-able.  So yes, we are moving into our investment home.  And it is still for sale. We are actually having a showing right now!  So we are just moving over the things that will look pretty.   
One of my local friends read my blog last night and called first thing this morning to help!  She was a total lifesaver!  She raided all the liquor stores in town for the good boxes and helped me all morning.  Her son was a major help, too.  Thanks Sara and Corbin!The weird thing is, that I found it all strangely exhilarating!  It's like rearranging your furniture, only slightly more drastic.  I usually never rearrange my furniture.  Maybe I should start.

Still, nothing like knowing that a bunch of new opportunities are about to open up!  Today was exactly what I needed.  Not just the move, but so many people being so nice and helpful.  I really needed that. My kids got to play with two different families and they had a really great day.  I went to pick them up and my friend's son was so enthralled in the Guinness book of world records.  It really cracked me up.  We ended up having a delicious dinner together. It was the perfect end to the day.

We were all pretty exhausted at the end of the day, though.  Talk to you all soon!
