Flying solo, for now

V. has gone to Las Vegas with the guys until Thursday. That's 6 days of just me home. He'll be back early Friday morning some time. I've just come back from 5 days in Chicago, and it looks like I'll be going to Dallas in two weeks. This will be the longest period of time that the two of us will have been apart since we've been together.

To pass the time, besides going to work, I'm going to be packing for our move at the end of the month. I'll happily take assistance, but the basement is off limits Patti. :) My goal for the week is to pack the main floor. This means all the glassware and such in the dining room, as well as all the DVDs and games. And for those of you who know us, this means well over 1000 DVDs. I'm confident I can do this. I've allocated tomorrow as the main packing day.

Meanwhile, I've given V. instructions to enjoy himself. They'll be hitting the casino, but they're also going to go to Area 51 and the Grand Canyon. He's going to have a blast! He gets back on the 10th, which coincidentally will be CD10 for me. So, a week from now we get onto the task of TTC. Just in time before I get sent on the next trip.

Anywayk, that's it for now.

If I can't play in the basement, then I don't want to play. :P

But let me know if you need boxes. We're always unloading new stock at work and trying to get rid of them.

We have one room in our house that is slowly filling with boxes. We move on the 18th of this month and for once I'm organised. I've been sorting through boxes that were packed 3 years ago and have put heaps aside to sell on eBay and thrown out a heap more than that.

Good luck with your packing while hubby's away. Do you have any special moving home tips?

Packing is coming along. Still lots to do. (Patti say nothing :) ).

Sassy, I'd love to throw stuff out as we /I pack but my husband is a self-admitted pack rat and he wants to go throught everything before it's thrown out. I can't say I have any moving tips however, if you think something is only going to take you a couple of hours, double it for a more accurate time. I'm finding that packing is taking longer per box than originally estimated.
