Ready to Move!

We are driving out tomorrow morning for Houston.  I’m super excited, but also dreading the goodbyes that accompany leaving.  I’ve already had some pretty emotional goodbyes, but tomorrow will be very emotional as we say farewell to both sets of parents and both of our brothers.  I’m sure we’ll be crying all morning.

After bidding farewell to the family we will head down to Portland and pick up our trailer.  We’re struggling right now to find the balance between using the space that we have in the trailer because we’ve paid for it (in order to get the car down) but not bringing too much.  It’s a tough balance and right now I really want to get rid of everything that we’re not taking in a suitcase.

We went to the Mariner’s game today with both of our families.  It was so wonderful!  Obviously we love the Mariners, and getting to spend Father’s Day with both of our dads, as well as uncles and cousins was special.  Add to that the fact that we sat in the King’s Court while Felix pitched, the Mariner’s beat the reigning World Series Champs, and it was a walk off win…it was a great send off.

Well, as much as I’d love to share more, I’m in the middle of downloading all of my CDs onto iTunes.  It’s hard to justify bringing all the the disks down when I can just save them to the computer.  Probably something I shouldn’t have left until last minute, but at least I’m doing it now.

Our goal tomorrow is to get to California.  I’ll let you know how it goes.
