I am popping in to say a quick hello and to let you all know that I will be on Tatertots and Jello this week!
Although I am up to my ears in packing tape and boxes, I did take some time out to have a little fun with the "little people" in my life. Please check it out!
I also wanted to share a few things with you while I am here. Call them "tips on moving", if you will. I know I am not the only one who is going to be moving this year since 'tis the season. All of you Bree Hodge types (or whatever her last name is now!) can tune this part out since you already know everything there is to know about all things domestic, but for the rest of us, this moving thing is no walk in the park. For one thing, it is taking waaaaay longer to box up the entire contents of the lives of six people than I expected. Way. For another, it is not cheap. I mean seriously, how many times can we run out of boxes, or tape, or food??? I guess a lot, because it seems like someone is always having to make a run to the store. I have also learned that although boxes made from recycled materials sound like they are eco-friendly, the fact that you have to wrap them in twice as much tape to try to compensate for the fact that tape does not like to stick to it's recycled surface, might negate any "green' potential.
My advice would be to buy more that you think you'll need, then double it. Save your receipts in case you over-buy.
Although I'd love to hang out here and visit you all, my eyes are drooping, so I am off to get a good night's sleep, so I can tackle another mountain of laundry and pile of brown boxes tomorrow. But please go check me out on TT&J this week!
