Stupid Carrie Story  

Because I know you all care SO much, here is my stunning living room, in all it's Christmas decorated glory.

So I'm out Christmas shopping again today, and I walk out of the store and go to my cute, black, Toyota Sequoia, Colin (Firth, not Creevey).  I open up the back, and stand there openmouthed, stunned that all of the packages that I'd bought so far this morning were GONE.  I stood there thinking, "I've been robbed. (*insert big bad words*) Someone stole all of those Christmas presents. " (About $300 worth...  It was a sickening feeling.)  Then I thought, "Why does my car smell like french fries?  I haven't had any french fries.  And what is all this crap spilling out of the storage compartment?"

Long story short, it wasn't my car.

Mine was parked two spaces down, locked.

*headdesk*

I closed the back of the imposter Sequoia, and left quickly.  

airmidm, I can fulfill one of your Christmas list wishes, but I'll need that address.  :D

reenie1, I just need to get a box and go to the UPS store.  :D

We're about to get a buttload of crappy weather...  Sunday night there's supposed to be snow, ice, sleet, more ice....  *glares at mother nature*  Can't it hold off?  I've got stuff to do next week!  (Update:  The house is coming along:  there's sheetrock, the brick's done, and they're texturing the walls.  It's conceivable that we may be in by next December.  Just kidding.  But it'll probably be March.)

The in-laws have the kids.  We had dinner ALONE.  'Twas lovely.  :)

Wow that's so pretty... and it must have been so much work! Did the boys help? :)

If u ever have any Q's on packing for the shift feel free to ask. I call my family the traveling circus for a reason!

Here's a question.

Where do I start? *whimpers*

In one word, the breakables. If you don't have professional packers, (I only have that luxury when we are on official moves!) this is the worst part.

I collect newspaper and wrap my glass wear and china in it, making sure I put one wet layer and then two dry layers. This has ensured that my china has survived six moves so far! I'm so careful coz experience has taught me that since the china is really the last thing you unpack, (coz u don't need it immediately) the box that u pack it in tends to stay in a hallway for a bit. And that is never very good for the stuff inside.

Ok, I'm getting off my soapbox now. Sorry to go on! Seriously though, if there is anything I can do to help, (except coming there and packing in person!) drop me a line. I can go on and on when it comes to shifting and moving!
