    And now, in 2 weeks, we are moving to Portland, Oregon!!!

    It's a mix feeling of panic, sadness (leaving my friends, my awesome job, my borther in law, my sister in law..).. but also excitement and happiness!!

    Now.. it's time to PACK!!!! cool2icon

    You'll love Portland! I have a lot of friends that live there/have moved there. It's really beautiful and very dog friendly! The only thing is that it rains quite a bit -- but it makes everything green and lush. :)

    Congrats!!

    I am excited for you! What a climate change!

    Just remember to pack one box that has the essentials in it and keep it in you car with you. Put toilet paper, paper plates, plastic utensils, salt and pepper, paper towels, bedding, towels, soap and aspirin. Plus anything you will need the first night you move into a new place. Since you are going cross country you will have most of your toiletries in your suitcase, but those other necessities are for when you arrive and will need. It is so much easier to have one go to box then having dig thru EVERYTHING! (I have moved more times than I can count. My husband was a reservist and shortly after 9/11 we were moving every 6 months for a few years. As long as he stayed stateside I would have moved more!)
