Still moving

I don't have a moving date yet. It looks like it is going to be after I leave for Italy. My parents have decided to hire movers and move me while I'm gone. I've asked some friends to help in my absence (thank you!) but I still feel little bad. Anyway, I'm doing my best to be completely packed and cleaned etc. before I leave the country. That's lovely except for one thing. My mom came over and decided to pack my kitchen (of which I am incredibly grateful for!). But that means I have one pan, a toaster, and a couple utensils to use until I leave. It's almost comical. I keep trying to get a glass or a plate from the cupboard...yet they are all bare. Although, my mom is one of the best china packers I know...so I'm actually really glad she decided to help. Thanks mom!

Moving

Some of you may know, I'm planning on moving. It all happened incredibly fast. My family decided to take advantage of the real estate market and buy a condo that I could rent to own. This all makes me really happy. Except, I had no clue what was involved in buying a house or condo. Apparently it takes a while for loans to go through and for sales to close. So as a result, I am really hoping to move before I leave for Italy on the 18th. Yes...that is the 18th of June. The mortgage guy says he is almost positive I can move before I leave...but it's not for sure yet. It looks like we will close by the end of next week...which gives me a week to pack and move and get on a plane. Can we all say...CRAZY?!?!
Let's all cross our fingers for a fast closing...I will take all the time I can get!
