All Boxed Up

I have been crazy busy these past few days trying to get a head start on packing up my house. Its amazing how much time, both physical and mental, that has to go into this type of move. I feel like I am packing for four different moves and sometimes it is just plain overwhelming, but I know that once it is all done it will be worth all the work. Why four moves you ask? Well we are putting most of our stuff into long term storage until we know where we will be stationed, which will be somewhere around six months from now. So I have to pack all that up, pack everything I need to take with me to my parents for the boys and I, then pack our change of season clothes and personal items that I am going to ship with the car and pack some of Joseph's civilian belongings that he needs sent out to him in the next couple months. Whew! Its just a lot or sorting, organizing and purging.

My house has been overtaken by boxes, lots and lots of boxes

For the fun of it, here is a before and after picture of a project that took four women a little over two hours to complete. The ridiculous part is this is all the clothes the boys own, from newborn to current and this is only half of the picture. Sheesh. Oh, and so you know, there is a couch in that first picture...



And because I am sure there are some people out there wondering what Joseph looks like without his beautiful hair or that crazy red beard. I honestly thought I was going to detest Joseph new hair cut because I have always loved his hair, but I was wrong.

Wow. I can't imagine all the craziness! May God give you strength through it all. Thanks again for meeting up with me about the cloth diapers. I really appreciate it. Oh... and I really like Joseph's clean cut! ;) Take care!
