We did it!!

We got the house packed (and mostly loaded) thanks to the nicest Pacific Islander guys ever. They even managed to not kill the peanut (who was underfoot more than I would have liked). We used an excellent moving company from this area that is woman owned. They came it at a higher estimate, but there are NO hidden costs. They will move my furniture 11 times if necessary for me to get it where I like it. They even know the names of the hermit crabs. They just might be our new best friends....

No one cried. No one had a baby. Victory on both counts (for me).

Today it all gets put in the new place. This is such a relief. Even with all the running I have done I am feeling great and not having any more contractions. I think the stress of anticipating moving was worse than the actual chore. Go figure.

Our cable and Internet won't be up until Monday. I did a half hearted attempt at sending the new address and phone number to my phone book, but like all things these days, didn't manage to get most people. Drop me an e mail if I missed you and I will send it right out. I will be sending a "we've moved/baby announcement" as soon as little G shows up, but if you need it before then, let me know.

Have a great weekend everyone and we will catch you early next week.

I am so happy everything went smoothly. I thought I would leave a reassuring message this morning, only to come here and find you were already done! Even pregnant you are so much more efficient than I am!
I hope you get at least a little while to prop your feet up and chill before this little one decides to join you guys....Wishing you the best

Yeah! I'm glad you made it! We've been fasting and praying for Norah and we're so happy that she's in the clear. She's so cute. We'd love to come by sometime and check out your new place!

I am so excited and happy for the whole family. A neighborhood! No more old ladies yelling about your dog! (they have no dog) Sister Nie will arrive Tues. to help unpack, put away and visit. Hope you get some serious R&R before G. arrives. Things do indeed look good this week.

I dream about movers sometimes...I can only hope I get some of my very own. The thought of moving all my crap gives me a heart attack.

So happy for you. For Norah, for the move, and for no contractions during said move. You are Superwoman!

I pray for peace and health for you all!
