Moving Day.

As I write, two nice men from the moving company are busy packing up all of our earthly possessions. Reality is setting in.
So far everything has gone very well. The kids love being in the hotel. They think it's the coolest that the TV channels are the same there as at home. That first night Jack and Morgan turned on every light, opened and closed the curtains and jumped on all of the beds. Each evening as bedtime draws near, they ask if we get to sleep at the hotel again. I'm not sure how I wonder when or if the novelty will wear off between now and when we finally get in our house. So far the only real tricky part has been getting everyone to sleep. Well, that and trying to maintain the volume to a level that is respectful of our neighbors. Those poor souls. They're getting much more than they bargained for, I'm sure.
Overall, they seem to be holding up ok. When we talk about the move, Jack always says he's excited. This morning, though, when it was time to load up the fish to take to our friends he got teary and sad. I explained that we couldn't take them with us and that wasn't it better that they could be with our friends than all alone. (Of course, I didn't tell him that the alternative would be that we flush them town the toilet. I have a heart, you know.)
My friends have been a huge help. Sara kept the kids yesterday so we could go out and celebrate Jeff's 32nd birthday. We had a great time browsing Barnes and Noble and enjoying Houlihans happy hour. The kids of course had a ball. Today, they're at Kerri's and I'm sure much fun is being had there too. Plus, both girls have made meals for us. It is such a huge help! Tomorrow J and M have dentist appointments then we're going to play at Susannah's while our stuff is actually loaded on the truck. Friday is going to be here before we know it.
I'm still not sure how the actual drive is going to go. Yesterday we hadn't been in the car more than five minutes and Morgan said "When are we going to get there. We've been in the car a really long time." Oh my sweet girl, you have no idea what's ahead. No idea at all.
*One note, I do have the link to Flickr but most pictures are set to "Friends/Family" only. So, if you don' t have access and would like it, let me know.
