Time to Migrate (title cleverly stolen from a Madagascar Penguins Poster)

So as the big day draws nigh (yes, that's right....I said "nigh"), the packing becomes hot and heavy. Hot because our air conditioner was broken for a few days. And heavy b/c those darn boxes weigh a ton!

Well....not those boxes...those are mostly empty and waiting to be filled with stuff. get the general idea.

Who knew we had such cool stuff? We're finding things that have never been opened (i.e. really nice cake plates, a 5 piece set of pyrex cooking stuff, kitchen gadgets, a doorway to Narnia). It's like Christmas at the end of March! And what's cool is that we'll have room for it in our new house, well, maybe not the doorway to Narnia, but the other stuff will be ok.

The penguins from the Entertainment Center have been lovingly wrapped in bubble paper and packed away:

And most of Alan's books and such are packed in some pretty heavy boxes, leaving the bookshelf (mostly) bare:

Here's the closet in the spare room also (mostly) devoid of stuff. You should have seen it before we started packing! If you look closely at the bottom of the closet, you can see the first two purchases we made for our house! (2 art prints- 1 for the kitchen and 1 for the dining room).

The cat is still trying to pack herself. So far, she's been convinced that she's a Christmas Tree, a penguin, a towel, an Entertainment Center knick knack, and the list goes on and on. In case you don't believe me, here's a couple of her pretending to be a book or one of Alan's 3 diplomas (note said diploma under her tail in the second picture), we're not really sure:

Earlier, we snuck up on her and got a picture of her pretending to be a cat:

Isn't it amazing what accumulates? Sorry I can't help you, I hope everything goes perfect :) I may stop by to check progress between making teen taxi runs.
