We are almost ready to close on the house! We are literally scrambling with three kids, two dogs, and an entire house worth of stuff to pack - to sell a few things, give a few things away, and take several trips to the dump to recycle and dump stuff that we no longer need. It's been crazy. And, of course, anyone who has moved knows it's so hard to figure out what you can pack that you won't need for the next two weeks and what you can't live without. This will be the seventh move that we have done together (and one of them was from Southern California to Northern California), so we certainly aren't newbies to this whole moving thing - but boy are we newbies when it comes to doing it with three kids. The hardest part for me is that I am an organization/neat freak (less so since having kids...), but moving makes SUCH a stinkin' mess. Grrrr.
