In the past several days I have packed no less than 40 boxes. Combine that number with the rented storage closet full of rubbermaids and two basement storage closets full of misc. boxes, plus furniture and you have an insane amount of stuff. I'm not having fun anymore. Anyone who wishes to skip reguarly scheduled gym time or the like on the 28th to haul boxes will be my hero for the next while. I can promise that it will be a worthy work out as we have calculated that we currently own over 750 lbs of books. I wish I could say that I was kidding. For the less physically inclined, I have also packed many boxes filled with stuffed animals and polly pockets. These boxes are very light, but look identical to the boxes containing 75 lbs of books. If you use a little acting, nobody will be the wiser. They all have to get moved from the uhaul (which we're hoping will actually make the trip) and I am dreading trying to get it all done with just T and I.

Today we drove up to Athabasca to finalize the purchase and shipping details on my new project(read: yearling Friesian filly). You have no idea how excited I am about this.
