Ugh, Moving…

Well, a week from now, Liz will be in NoVA and I’ll be somewhere in North Dakota (hoping all goes well). We’ve been frantic packing the house up and dealing with movers and last minute TDYs (temporary duty) to Denver for a polygraph!

The polygraph was a blast (yeah, right), but it was nice to get out of Great Falls, even if it was only for a day. Sounds like it went well, but the last word rests with the security folks.

As for packing, that is even harder than I remember. We’ve got so much stuff but, for the most part, only one of us can pack at a time because Audrey has been rather fussy lately. I can’t say I blame her. We’ve kind of upset her entire life over the last few days. On Thursday we had the movers come by and get all the awkward or heavy or very breakable things and that stuff is on its way to Virginia. Since then we’ve been busy packing everything else in the house and there is a LOT OF STUFF! We’re getting our U-Haul tomorrow, cleaning the house Tuesday and we’re finally out of the house for good on Wednesday. It’s going to be weird to leave the house since it’s our first house, we brought the dogs to that house and, most importantly, it was Audrey’s first house. It’s a little bittersweet, but in the long run, I don’t think I’m going to miss it as much as I think right now.

It’s late and since I’ve been packing all day, it’s time for a beer and bed.
