1 Week Left!

I am leaving one week from today! HOLY CRAP! I have so much to do and so little time. Yesterday I spent some time at Tori's house, the boys played in the yard and we sat there with our cute babies and talked. It was really weird when I went to leave and realized that we would probably only communicate through email and blogging from now on. We didn't get to hang out much before, but the fact that it's no longer an option made me really sad. She left for Texas this morning, so I guess that's goodbye. I know that it's going to be even harder to say goodbye to Michelle and Gina. Not that we'll never see eachother again, and I am happy to be moving, but you know how it goes. Plus, I'm a real baby.
I will have to pawn these kids off for a few hours or pack at nights if I am going to get this done. Trent is going to stay until the 14th, he has to finish his home addition and the rock and stucco on our house. I was stressing out about driving with the kids while hauling a big trailer, to which Trent kept replying "We'll be fine." It was absolutely driving me nuts that he didn't care or understand that I was really not comfortable with doing that, no matter how many breaks we took or if we stopped overnight. I am an average driver and have never pulled a trailer. Plus I knew Charlotte would not be happy in her carseat, hungry or not. So after talking to my mom, my parents made a very generous and wonderful proposal that saved my sanity. They are flying me and the kids down on June 8- I can have a few days to get the house key and make sure the utilities are set up. Then my dad is flying up on the 13th do the driving. Honestly, a lifesaving deed! I feel the weight of the world is off my shoulders and now I can focus on packing and cleaning the house.

Silly as it sounds, I'm worried about driving with my cats or flying them. They are definitely going to have to be drugged, they HATE the car and have panic attacks. I may just take them with me when we fly down to look at practices for spring break. Any chance you want 2 cats from next March til June?

What a wonderful offer! Yay for your mom and dad!

Um, I'd email you this tidbit, but since I don't know your email, I'll give you the Public Service Announcement here: If you're renting your house out and have a management company, don't get Continental Management. They are awful and their customer service stinks!

Anyway, call your visiting teachers to come with newspapers and wrap dishes one night. That was awesome for me!
