I Hate It!
You want to know what I hate? Moving. I hate moving. I hate packing all the boxes up and taking them away in a truck. You know what I love? Unpacking. It's like getting a whole bunch of gifts! We are moving in a couple of weeks. As I pack I'm finding things to sell at a yard sale. Unfortunately the keep boxes out number the sell boxes. I wish it was the other way around. I only have one box of books to sell and about four to keep. Also, I've only found two games so far to sell. I'm not even halfway done with the game closet though, so hopefully I'll find some more I can bear to part with. While I was in the game closet I realized that I need a refresher course on how to play Mah Jongg. It's been to long since I played and I was never very good to begin with. I remember that I enjoyed it, though. So, we are moving to Sun Valley which is by Sparks and Reno. I need to get the kids enrolled in that school and figure out how I'm going to get their school uniforms. I don't know if I have to buy them from the school, or if I can get them anywhere. The lady I need to talk to won't be in the office until next week, so I really don't know much about anything yet. We'll be close to the school, so we may walk most days while it's still nice. I'll have to see how long it takes us. If I remember right the school is about 4 blocks away. School is starting before our vacation to Indiana, so we don't get to go. I don't want them to miss that many days, and since our vacation was supposed to last a couple weeks it isn't feasible do take it. I'm really bummed about it, but I'll get there sometime. It's been 4 years since I've been back in Indiana and I miss it, but Nevada feels like home. I guess home is where you hang your hat. I've lived in Indiana, Utah, Idaho, and Nevada. They all have pros and cons, but I've enjoyed myself in all those places. Anyway, Sun Valley looks like a nice place for us. It's closer to Derek's job and we'll save lots of gas. Plus the rent is cheaper than this apartment I'm in now. I'm looking forward to it and also not enjoying the packing.
