So I have either lost my mind entirely or I am way too easily entertained.

Matt and I sat down tonight to try to figure out if we should buy Points for our home loan or not and as it had been a stressful day, I was having trouble concentrating. As you can see in the sideways movie below, my water cup was doing all it could to make it completely impossible for me to do math.

I have decided that I have a new dislike in life. Putting together BOXES!!!!! Matt and I have gone through hundreds of feet of tape and it seems like millions of boxes. There is no way it is all going to fit into a truck and it seems like every time I think we are getting close to being done more stuff just appears. Where did it all come from and how has it fit inside of our tiny house? I love the thought of moving and I am in love with our new house but the fact that I am packing all of these boxes only to have to drive them across the country and then unpack them may in fact be my undoing.

I hate boxes and tape and paper and bubbles
but mostly, I hate all the trouble :)

Life is moving!

So I know I have been out of touch for just a little while....not much was happening. Matt and I were in a holding pattern waiting to get permission to begin planning our move to Sacramento. Well we finally have the green light and boy are things moving FAST now. We flew out to Sacramento last week and found a home!!!!! Here are a few pictures.

The inside is move in ready but the back yard is pretty much a blank slate (as you can see) and I can't wait to plan my own garden out there.

Now we are back in Baton Rouge and we only have three weekends to pack all of our stuff and figure out how to get it across the country. We were looking into a moving company but holy cow they want way too much money. Now Matt and I are debating using PODs or just driving across the country in a moving truck. I am kinda hoping to go with the PODs. It would be nice not to have to worry about parking a truck the entire time we are driving, although that would leave us in a conundrum about my plants. I guess we will have to wait and see.

While we were in California we did get to look around a little. We drove out to Tahoe and into Nappa valley. In both places we went for little hikes and decided that most of our time in California will be spent outside camping :) I can't wait, the dogs are going to love it.
