One Week Until Liftoff!

The boxes are still being packed and the boys are doing some last minute sight seeing this afternoon and checking out the Alamo.

I’ve heard back from the realtor in New Jersey and he’s sent us four listings of rental houses. Of the four we like three of them. So keep your fingers crossed that no one rents those places while we’re in transit!!!

Yesterday they held a little potluck going-away (me)/coming back (coworker who had surgery to remove her cervical cancer) lunch. It was very sweet of them to do this, especially considering I have only worked here for seven months.

Papa Bear Boss gave me a mug as a going away present.

As I was packing it, it occurred to me—I’ve really made it in the world.

See the mug on the right? That’s my Schiester, Shafter, Conniver & Dodge, P.C. (the law firm I worked at in Lansing) mug.

It used to be that I only got a nametag to take with me when I left a job. Woo! Now it’s mugs!

On the subject of moving, I’m aiming for Tuesday to be the day we disconnect the internet and TV so it will be all dark here for probably a few weeks until we land again.

I want you to know I won’t be dropping the ball with K.A.Y.E. while I’m gone—only letting it bounce for a bit. Keep emailing your name and email and blog address (if you have one—not required!) if you qualify this month!

Hopefully by the time the end of the month rolls around we’ll have the internet hooked back up again, and I’ll be able to spread the kootchie awareness yarny love!

You all should head to the Stock Show and Rodeo grounds on Fri. before leaving. Lots of things are $1, including admission fee and carnival rides.

Hey, good luck with the move... I'm sure it will go smoothly. (of course I'm dying to know where in NJ you'll end up). Just please don't call it 'Jersey', ok? ;)

Congrats on getting out of hell! You must have been on your best behavior for those seven months. I wouldn't say New Jersey's heaven but you certainly are moving up! ;) We're going to miss you while you're gone! Have a safe trip!

Waiiiiiit a sec. I swear I saw that pic earlier today while I was reading bloglines at work. So, does that mean they might have unblocked flickr? ooh, I can't wait to see tomorrow!

Oh that is just great! Now you get mugs and not name tags!! You know you still have a name tag in the escort. It has been there so long it will be there when the car dies and goes to car heaven. Have a nice last day at work and a good time loading up the truck. Don't ddrive too fast and have fun at T's and the B6 in NC. Love, Mom
