Empty and Full

Wow!  What a day!  Yes, I did get some sleep…after going to bed at 3:40AM.  Got to sleep in until 10:00, so I got over 6 hours, whoohoo.  Good thing, cuz I hit the floor running (not literally, no matter how much I wish that were true.  I haven’t worked out at the gym for weeks …aaarrrggghhh) Mailed my thank you notes for the jewelry parties AND my application for my India visa, got lots and lots (silly me, I thought I got plenty) of boxes at the grocery (had to go back later to get more), and dove into packing.  I want to stop and PRAISE GOD for some of the hardest working girls I know…Sarah, Abby, and Emily Dailey.  They packed.  They carried down the stairs.  They unpacked. They swept.   They had great attitudes…. for SEVEN hours!!!

Anyway, we had three van-full trips home.  Yes, there is still some left, but not a full load, unless you count the two freezers!  Don’t think they will fit in the van.  Got a truck, anyone?

The cafe is so empty….





But the garage is so full ……………

Believe it or not, I can find things in this…

This is before the last load!  Crazy, huh?

See, we have nice long rows of shelves with lots and lots of boxes.  They are somewhat grouped by kind.


all that's left to pack


Just today we went from this:

yeah, Emily and Sarah!
