9,000 pounds of HHG (that's household goods, for you non-military types) that thankfully fit in
One 26' truck meaning that our we did in fact empty and release our
10x20' storage unit, avoiding extra rent, extra expense, and an extra
530 miles (each way) to MD and back to get the rest. Phew.
2 kids and
3 cats and
1 fish held up amazingly well on the
10.5 hour drive south last week - which was preceded by
2 nights in a hotel and a
7 hour drive from CT to MD. Did all this lead me to come down with a
24 hour stomach bug or just an extreme stress reaction? The jury is still out.
4 bedrooms in this house - it's huge!!
40" LCD TV - Merry Christmas to us - we finally catch up with the rest of the world in the technology department.
$2.96 for gas down here - that seems cheap?
2 episodes of "The Life of Mammals" that I've watched on our pretty new TV while trying to write this post while also catching up on
10 days of neglected bookkeeping... which is perhaps why I'm out of good ideas for now.
12 days of Christmas have only just begun; please let me stay in the Christmas spirit long enough to make at least
1 batch of cookies and watch Christmas in Connecticut at least one more time.
MANY fun and/or necessary things to do in the next
8 days before Don starts his new job.
MUCH to catch up on when I resume some regular blogging (I've been promising that for awhile, haven't I?)
LOTS of love to all my friends and family out there at this most wonderful time of the year!
