Packing day

Well, the movers should show up any minute to pack everything- of course I have been slowly packing all week, Amy's room is completely done, and pretty much so is our bedroom. I also sealed up lots of boxes that we had never unpacked from the last move (but had opened to find various things). I'm worn out, and decided not to do any more, they can do the rest! Tonight will be our last night in this house.

We have a house!

Yesterday it was official! We went to the attorney's office at 9 am yesterday and signed all the papers, and the house is officially ours (OK, technically it is the banks, but YKWIM!)

Our moving day is set for this coming Tuesday, with the movers coming to pack everything on Monday.

Today I am going to work on making lists- what not to get packed, companies to change address with, etc. Oh, and laundry.

Had to have the final fill of the oil tank yesterday- ouch! I am so glad we were able to lock in our price last winter of $3.19 a gallon- The "discounted" rate with our landlord's oil company is up to $4.49! It cost us $570 even at our locked in price- would have been $800 at the higher price!

Our internet service will be down from Tuesday until at least Saturday when Comcast comes to the new house to set it up, I may be able to access the internet from the library near the new house, but haven't checked into it yet.

Some new photos

22 Weeks- I feel bigger, but I think baby is shrinking some of my "reserves"! My pants are fitting looser in the rear, hips and thighs, but my belly seems to be narrower and more pointy now- with Amy, I carried very large and very round, and had no waist left at all! Don't worry- I am eating plenty- just mostly eating healthy food, and the midwife says everything looks great, baby measures right on target- I have only gained about 10 pounds so far!

Still here...

Just wanted to let everyone know we are still here, but have been busy. Mark's parents are here visiting until Sunday, and we all flew down to Washington, DC June 2-9 for a family funeral.

We have been doing a bunch of siteseeing, and are now gearing up for the move, which is scheduled to happen on the 24th- only 12 days from now. The moving company is coming the day before to pack everything for me, but I have still started doing some packing on my own, since every box we pack ourselves saves us money!

Baby is doing good, and is very active at times- he is now kicking hard enough that we can sit and watch my belly move. I have also been busy crocheting.
