Yet another reason I love my husband

He has agreed to hire the movers to pack us and move all of our stuff, instead of packing ourselves and moving some of the boxes on our own. With a three-and-a-half month old in the household, we operate at 25% efficiency, at our best; often we are in a dead stop. I was consumed with panic the other night and woke him up at 3:30 in the morning to plead my case. Thankfully he agreed. This means I have to put off buying a new kitchen table, so our set from 1982 will unfortunately be making the move with us. But the '80s are fashionable again these days, so I figure we're actually quite hip.

Now begins the descent into madness. Tonight we are doing the walk-through of the house, then we are going to grab a quick dinner for DH's birthday. Oh yeah, did I mention it's DH's birthday today? We're not exactly in party mode, so we'll have to celebrate later. Then tomorrow we both work, and we should HOPEFULLY be getting the keys by 9 pm. Personally, my money is on Tuesday afternoon. I am less than impressed with this title company and have no faith in their ability to actually have closing when it's scheduled. But it's out of my hands now, so I'm trying not to stress about it. Anyway, the packers are coming at 8 am on Tuesday morning, and then Wednesday is The Big Move. Our Internet access will be down this week, so I'll be getting even more behind on my blogging, commenting, and emailing. I'm disappointed in the timing of all this -- there were a few posts that I wanted to write before NaComLeavMo ends on Wednesday, such as my experience with pregnancy after infertility and how infertility has affected me as a mother so far. But if anyone cares to hear about those things, maybe I'll get back to them after the craziness subsides.

Next time I write, I'll be at the new place. I can hardly wait! So I'm signing off for the last time from this rental house with some pics of my sweet Bean...

On the way to sign the settlement documents. He's very excited to get the new house.

Waiting for the rep at the title company. Grandma M. sent us a new outfit for Bean to wear at signing. (DH and I chose our outfits accordingly.)

Bean finds the home buying process to be a very exhausting.

Big smile for mommy.

Arm hair, yummy! (You'd think we don't feed the poor kid, if it weren't for all those fat rolls.)

Good luck with your move! We did it without movers--and I would definitely say that whatever you have to pay--so, so, so, worth it!!
I hope it all goes really smoothly. We are also using a table from the 80's also--it's the hip thing to do ;)

I have to say movers are the only way to go but once you've had them you can never go back to moving on your own! Good luck!

Happy Birthday! Thanks for your comment. It is true I have such a hard time letting go of the baby days, but the toddler and big kid days are so great too. Different but still great! nclm

Yay for closing on your house and HAPPY (albeit late) birthday to your husband.

I am now fully caught up on your blog. I've been so behind ever since Washington! I can't wait to hear all about the new house and how the move went.

Oh, and I thoroughly enjoyed the naked picture of Evey showing everyone her goods.
