We did it!

The moving container is loaded and was picked up yesterday evening.  Our belongings are now on their 1,165 mile journey to Iowa.  If everything goes as planned, the trailer will be waiting for us when we arrive on Sunday.

We must admit, our nerves are frayed, our bodies are fatigued and we’re in desperate need of a cocktail (or two).  Luckily, we left behind a few staples to get us through the rest of the week.  Bread, milk, almond butter, beer, vodka and olives.  You know, the important stuff. 😉

We wish we could report that Gus handled all the ruckus as cool as a cucumber, but sadly, he was quite upset the entire time we were packing and loading.  All of our traipsing in and out of the house with boxes and bags did quite a number on the poor little guy.  To top it all off, he had his annual exam yesterday (we know, terrible timing on our part), and had to endure shots and having his blood drawn.  We’ve done our best to keep him calm and comfortable, but we’d be lying if we said we weren’t worried about him.

Thank you so much for all your well wishes this past week.  We’re so grateful for the friends we’ve made through the blog and it makes our hearts melt to know you were thinking of us. 😀

We hope you’ve all had a great week so far.  This is the first time we’ve been online in days and can’t wait to catch up on blog reading.  We’ve missed our blog friends!
