One Month...

A month from today the moving van will load up our earthly possessions to transport them to our new home. I've mostly resigned myself to the reality of living with boxes for the time being during the packing and unpacking time. I don't like it, but I'll deal with it.

I *am* appreciating the added level of difficulty that Z introduces as he is a cruising 9.5 month old boy who loves all things paper and cardboard, and keeping him out of the dog's water dish. Thank goodness for the wrapping paper rolls that he like to "vacuum" the floor with. These keep him occupied for at least 10 minutes straight!

Does anybody know the number of a good dumpster company? That is of course a rhetorical question. ;-)

If you don't hear from us for a while it is probably because we've taped ourselves into a corner and we are stuck behind a pile of books trying to keep the boy from eating their dust covers or the dust bunnies we find. Ooooh soft bunny..... gotta go.

I don't know if you recall but you emailed me in the fall with some tips on domestic adoption here in mid-MO (we're stuck in the stalled line to China right now). I just checked your blog again and saw the moving to Chicago note.

I actually moved to Columbia from Chicago, 10 years and one day from when you posted this exactly, which is kind of odd! If you need any tips I might be able to help with on the city, just drop a line. Its a great town and I hope the moving and transition goes well for you all!
