We're moving!

Husband and I moving to Texas in less than 2 weeks! Husband is leaving the army and will be training to become a police officer. The class was going to start in March, but has been pushed to at least June. By the time we received that information, we were already making plans to move. So we decided to move out there early. That will give us time to get settled. It will give me time to find a job. I haven't worked for almost a year now, and the thought of a job kind of makes me sad! How will I keep up with all my talk shows? (Just kidding...sort of!)

I have never moved an entire apartment across the country before. In fact, I've never moved an entire apartment across town! It has been, and will continue to be, a learning experience. The other night, Husband was trying to reserve a moving truck online, and he asked me what size of truck I thought we would need. Ummm? How about one that is big enough to fit all of our stuff? For some reason, he did not find that answer helpful! To be honest, I don't want to have anything to do with picking the truck size. That way, if it is too small, it is not my fault! Selfish? Maybe. Smart? Definitely!

We have packed up quite a bit of stuff already, but it seems like there is so much more to pack up. I feel like I have no idea what I am doing, and I don't! I don't know how to pack up an apartment! Calm down. Breathe! In through the mouth, out through the nose (I can hear my friend Olivia saying this to me. It's one of her more famous sayings!). I can do this! If nothing else, I'll shove everything into garbage bags and make Husband figure out how to put it in the truck that is too small!

Hey Mitch! Have fun in Texas! That's like your dream place to live, aside from Mexico. I don't want to hear of any complaints about the heat though. :)
