I just foresee some very busy days ahead. I will share more about it once we are at my parents' house. Right now we already have the moving truck outside! My husband picked it up today! He was supposed to get it tomorrow, but the place we got it from called to say they had to close tomorrow and that he could get it today. Also when he got there, they did not have the 16 foot truck we reserved and gave him the 24 foot truck instead(for the same price)! It's so BIG! We don't even need all of that space, but better to have more than enough space than too little, right?
Tomorrow I get to meet another online friend that I have been in touch with for many years! I am excited. While her situation was not exactly the same as ours, we initially got to know each other because we both experienced the process of immigration paperwork involved in marrying someone from another country. And since then, we have shared in talking about all different things, Etsy too! She loves it, is an artist, and has two shops (which are on vacation for a short time). She just moved too, closer to where I live, which is why I wanted to meet her before leaving Florida. :) Her links: http://www.etsy.com/shop/LauraHussein(for watercolor prints) and http://www.etsy.com/shop/lilwordtoldme (hand painted wooden letters).
I packed up my favorite coffee mugs today, finally, and some other kitchen items. It feels more and more real! I will be back in a few days.
