Guess what I'm doing?

Packing. Yep, lots and lots of packing. We found out on New Year's Eve that Hubby got a great job offer in the Salt Lake City area and we have decided to take it. The downside is that he has to start on January 16th. That does not give us much time to pack and say goodbye to our life here. I was so sad to tell Michelle, and we both cried. Then I had to tell Little T's mom and we both cried. She's having a hard time finding someone who will be able to watch him on such short notice, and he's been like part of my family for the last 7.5 months, I'm going to miss him so much. We also have to get the house packed and ready to sell as soon as possible. Until it sells we will be living with my family. Most of our furniture will be left here until we sell the house and find a new place to live, but I still have to pack up everything else to take with us. There is so much to do in such a short amount of time, which is very stressful. I've been busy today packing up stuff in my boys' room and the playroom. I've boxed up all the toys and left one box open for them to play with here and at my family's, the rest will stay boxed until we get a new home. I've been working on packing up stuff in the office as well, have most of the books done, now I need to tackle the closet. After that I will work on my room and the bathrooms. I want to get it all done asap so that we can work on getting the whole place really clean and nice looking to get it up for sale. So, I won't have much time for blogging in the next few weeks, and at my family's I won't be online as much either, but I'll still try to comment once in a while :)

I can't believe you're leaving so soon. I think I'm still in shock. We all are happy for you, this sounds like a good opportunity. You will be greatly missed and I will be forever bored out of my mind when you leave.

Let me know what we can do to help, anything. *HUGS*

Congrats on the new job! I know how hard it is to pack quickly. When we first came to HK, we had about a 2 week notice as well. We didn't have to worry about selling a house, though. Good luck with everything!
