So apparently I suck at packing. I get waaaaay too sentimental. I want to bring everything with me! Everyone says, "It's only gonna be 2 - 3 years." Dude, that's a long time, especially to be without my stuff! I wish I could bring my dvd collection, my comic books and graphic novels, my toys (damn you Toy Story 3!), my stuffed animals...most of all, Raider! We're going to scope out the neighborhood and see if it would be a good living environment for him. He might be better off staying here, and I want what's best for my baby.
Anyhoo...for the important news: we've set a date. July 26th is the day we plan to leave. We're gonna be scoping out the apartments and making our deposit. A week later will be August 1st (the day most apartments will be available). For those few days in between, we're hoping to stay with relatives, or at the very least, a cheapy motel. Then viola! We'll be all settled down. I just hope everything goes as smoothly as we want!
