My Bags are Packed…

Note, that says bags, not boxes. I’m heading out to California tonight to fête my dad’s hard-earned retirement, then do so some apartment hunting for the remainder of the week.

“Packing sure makes me tired!”

I’m eager to…

  • celebrate my pops
  • find the perfect place
  • come back to Kansas to blitz-pack the rest of our stuff
  • enjoy the celebration party our friends have planned for our departure (totally humbling)
  • arrive at our new place in CA!

Note: I did not list “drive from Kansas to California” in that because I know it’s going to happen but I am sooooo not looking forward to it.

So, I plan on getting some posts up here and there this week, but I can’t promise a lot because it just might get crazy!

If you liked My Friend Staci on facebook, you will have already seen this adorable picture of Mosey napping amongst our packing materials.

  1. I can’t wait to see you! And meet Doug for the first time! And play with Mosey! If you ever need a dog-sitter, let me know!

  2. Hope you find an apartment you like – the drive won’t be that bad will it? I guess 25 hours in a car is enough to bug anyone but if you see it as an adventure rather than a chore does that make it any better?

    1. It does make it better :) I don’t mind long drives on a road trip, but seeing how we will be caravaning in separate vehicles with a sometimes-impatient dog in tow, I think it’ll be a long three days. However, the end is in sight… living in SAN DIEGO!
