Counting Down

Nearly one week left!  Eight more days of work.  I've spent the last few days packing and we are getting down to the wire.  The majority of things are done; now we are working on the last minute things that can't be done too far ahead of time.  I guess that's why they are last minute things, right?  I am so tired and physically exhausted.  I'm sure in a few days I will be mentally exhausted as well.  I have had a very kind friend come help me pack, otherwise I think I would be in a worse shape.

I am getting excited, and I hope that exhilaration will carry me through the next week and a half.  I have said many good-byes, and a few see-you-laters.  The next week will be difficult at work.  I am looking forward to Saturday when I will see my Mommy.  Its been 8 months! since I last saw her!

The next week will continue to be busy: family haircuts, more continuing education, last minute good-byes, lots of cleaning, packing boxes, then loading the truck.  I had some retail therapy last night to help me cope.  I purchased new plates, bowls, glasses, and a shower curtain.  I can't wait to see them in the new house!

I have a few more posts planned, but I am waiting on pictures from a friend.  I hope to post at least twice before I leave, but I can't make any promises.

Love the new items you got! The shower curtain is super cute and where is the Crate and Barrel Outlet?

I ordered them online. On the Crate and Barrel website there is an outlet tab. I just clicked away and ordered from there. I received the picture. Look for another post soon!

Thanks for making me the repository for all the goodies. I have a stack of the things you sent me already. I did get you housewarming gifts from West Elm, a gnome, Bee Hive vase and a fish all in white to accent you beach house.
I can't wait to see you and then get your place unpacked. :)
