So how are hubby and darling daughter doing without you while you are helping your sister?

PF, are you and Shrek going to be close to family? That would definitely be the whipped cream to top it all off. I just love good news when it is for others. I have a bunch of questions. Like is there much more packing to do?

A trick I learned when moving. If you find yourself using boxes from your local stores, cut handle openings in the side far enough down so they don't split upward. It make picking up the boxes so much easier.

Any of these multitudes of cookbooks in there somewhere? I love the teapot!

A two bedroom apartment full that we've lived in for 15 years and a storage place you could park a car in. That much stuff. I do have a hand truck to help move things.

Mom and Dad live up the road, 20 minutes from the town got the job in. Shrek's brothers are two hours away in Laramie.

My best friend since 2nd grade and my two Godsons will be 26 miles away.

I wish the pile was that big...just the books will be a huge part of the move. Shrek and I both have pack rat genes, too...nasty combination.

Pack rats. Oh dear. one is bad enough. But two of you? Oh dear. You have your work cut out for you. I am glad your father is coming to help. And that hand cart is going to be very handy indeed. Now the next problem, is do you have a place to move into? Or are you going to stay with Mom and Dad until you find something? Moving is such a hassle.

I know my last move I had to downsize again! I had downsized when I moved to my daughter's house. And then even more when I moved here.

Sounds like you are going to need a mansion this time. Good luck with the packing and moving. God Speed.

The best thing about moving to where I am is my family, on Mom's side, is from there and Mom knows everyone. She's getting me a place to live as we speak, she knows I will pay her back for any money she has to lay out to get us a place. If not, the shed in her backyard is vacant.
