And So It Begins....

Or Ends, I'm not sure which way I'm looking at it yet.

The End of our Family Living in Utah, The Beginning of a New Chapter.
The main floor is totally packed, minus the office. It's strange to see everything in boxes.. I'm thankful I'm not the one packing them though! Thank heavens for Corporate Relocations!

Love this pic! One of the boxes says "LOTS O'STUFF". LOL

Love this sticky plastic sheeting!! I need some of that!!

We'll be living out of this car for the next 2 weeks, so I got made sure it was like brand-new before I packed it.

We have wonderful friends who are letting the kids and I stay the next few nights at their home, and then on Friday night we'll have a camp-out in our empty house before we say good-bye.

More later...


  1. I'm sure seeing all of those boxes stacked to the ceiling evokes a lot of emotion - It does for me! So nice to have it magically happen, though.

    That sticky plastic is awesome. We've used it several times when working on a construction project to keep sheetrock mud, tile adhesive, etc. off of our carpets. It's not cheap, but totally worth it!

    Enjoy your last few days camping and visiting with friends before hitting the road. It'll be strange to not see you online. ;)

  2. Boxes really help us appreciate all of our many blessings...Especially the blessings of movers...You guys are loved and will be missed!

  3. I had big plans to see you before you left...and POOF, you are gone. Best of luck keep us posted on the relocation. We hope this is a great new chapter.

  4. I say definitely look at it as a beginning. It's so much easier that way. And you can look at it as an adventure. It was hard for us to make the decision to move out of our old ward/stake after spending our entire married life in the same ward. I know we're still in the same city, but it doesn't feel like it. This move has been so good for us in so many ways and we're making lots of new friends and just loving life. I think it will be that way for you. You'll have lots of fun new places to explore and your family will have so much more time together. And you are outgoing enough that you'll make new friends quickly. This will be great for you.
