And It's Done

Our little corners of crap turned into 60 boxes yesterday and off they went, headed for Arlington Virginia.  Our first pack-out - done.

I had a dream the night before that someone was chasing me around dreamland trying to murder me.  I woke up and said to Max.  "Murder!  Can you believe that?"  Just outraged at the gall some people have. I think was feeling a bit of moving stress, but realizing that on Friday night I don't have to stay up until 5 in the morning getting suitcases packed and weighed and re-packed has lifted the world off my shoulders.  So now it's just see all the people we love and move on out.  Woo.


  1. I'm sad I didn't get to see you when you were down here. I never heard back from you when I replied to your email a few weeks back.

    Best of luck in this new adventure!

  2. Hey Brooke - I just got caught up on your blog for the past 6 weeks or so. I'm so excited for you and Max and your new life in DC! Also, your Italy adventure looks amazing!
