We finally took the boy up to the new house yesterday. This was the first time we weren't concerned about nails, debris, mud, etc - so it was the perfect day to do it. I don't know what Sabot made of it - but we certainly determined that we have lots of room to play with the toys...so that's always a plus for him.
We walked all over the place yesterday - and sabot managed to find a nice clean stream to plant himself in. We have quite the talented dog.
Move-in will probably be in about 3 weeks. I have a week of travel in there, else we'd be in sooner. We are most definitely paying movers to move us to the new place. I think it's for the best - we'd have to beg and bribe friends for help, Joe and I would probably not be thrilled with each other over something...it's way easier this way.
We moved our spare queen bed up there last week and discovered just how small the rooms are. Sigh. We're certainly giving up the roominess of this place for the new one...but, it's worth the commute reduction.
I'm headed to Bellevue for a SWE meeting this afternoon. Between now and then: haircut (first one since last Sept), REI, half price books, Ikea (to pick up the last few things they were out of stock on in Portland last week), work on my statistics homework, dog / cat food and cupcakes. :-)
