Packing Up

Chad & I are busy packing up all our stuff. It's a bit of a struggle, but we are making really good progress. We have taken all the boxes out of the storage room & gone through all the baby stuff to decide what we'll need in Alberta & what we can wait for.

We've packed all the things in the laundry room which included all the kitchen things like the rice cooker, crock pot, corningware, etc. We had to stop at that point b/c we started getting carried away & headed toward the kitchen stuff. At one point had we kept going we'd have nothing to eat for breakfast the next few days.

The items from the desk have been packed, which has become an issue already b/c all the rubberbands are gone.... How are we supposed to wrap electrical cords now? We did leave out a few pens, but we don't really have any paper to write things on..... I suppose we could write ourselves notes on boxes, but w/ our luck the box would get moved & we'd have no idea where that person's phone number went.......

All the books & art got packed before the weekend & now our living room echoes....
echoes... echoes....

Asher is enjoying being at daycare this week. Yesterday he managed to talk his way out of a nap there, but fell asleep on the couch about 20 minutes before we picked him up. This resulted in him sleeping in 'til quarter after 7 this morning! Of course b/c he is always awake at quarter 'TIL 7 most mornings, I woke up then & couldn't get back to sleep......

This morning Asher woke up & asked to play w/ his trucks, BUT we got a little carried away in packing his room yesterday & the only toys that are left are ones that we are going to get rid of, so there were no trucks. We did leave about 1/2 of his books out, but since he couldn't play w/ toys while we got ready, one of us had to read to him while the other got ready this morning, so we were a bit later than usual. That's ok though, we aren't really in a huge rush.

It's been really enjoyable having Chad around w/o Asher. I know that sounds bad, but normally one of us is preoccupied w/ Asher so we don't really spend all that much time talking & just BEING together.

This morning we got started packing our room. We're pretty much done, though it was not a whole lot of fun. We had to go through all our clothes & decide what we're going to wear in the next 2 months, pack THAT stuff to take to Alberta, & then pack the rest of the stuff for storage. For me, that consists of maternity clothes & post-maternity clothes.... It's not so easy to decide what clothes are going to fit after you have the baby, when you are currently 7 months pregnant.... How skinny will you be 2 weeks after your baby is born? What clothes (that you haven't even THOUGHT about looking at in the last 5 months) will you be able to/want to wear in 2 months?

Pretty much all that's left now is the washroom & the rest of the kitchen stuff. That shouldn't take us too long. We have 'til Thursday night when all the people come to load the trailer, but I think we should be able to be done sometime tomorrow. It's nice that we are so good at packing b/c I would NOT like to feel rushed doing this. It's nice to be able to relax in the evenings & not feel like we should be packing. Besides, I'm PREGNANT! I should be taking it easy, eh?

  1. Enjoy another temporary move. Hopefully soon you will be able to put some roots down and not have to see boxes for a very long time.
