Move Update

Hi everyone,

It is 3 days until the big move, but of course we're not counting. HA! We are starting to take a few things to the house little by little, to spread out the work done by us. My brilliant husband (and I really mean that) decided that it would be a good idea for us to get a cleaning lady to come to the apartment on Friday so that we didn't have to worry about getting that place cleaned up. We can instead just focus on getting the house unpacked.

John spent the better part of yesterday hooking up a system so that we can water the yard while we're not living at the house in a fairly easy way. He got a timer and an automatic shut off thing for the water - so it waters the back yard for a couple of hours... then I go switch the hoses on my way to work, and it waters the front for a couple of hours. Pretty smart, huh? It's also a great system so that I can put things in my car in the evening and then unload them really quickly in the morning at the house. It kills two birds with one stone... I love that!

We're about 96% packed, and hope to finish that up tonight or tomorrow - with the minor exceptions of the things we absolutely need between now and Thursday. We're getting excited, and can't wait to get some pictures together of our house with some actual stuff in it!!

Have a great week!
