Pack It Up, Pack It In

Packing with kids is hard.
Who knew finding a house would be so FREAKING, CRAPPING, STINKING, HECKA, DANG HARD! I've driven up to Boise twice (5 hours each way with kids=f-o-r-e-v-e-r). We haven't been able to find the right house. If the house is right, the neighborhood is wrong. There is a particular neighborhood that we like. It has lots of kids (our #1 priority), walking paths, pretty canals, parks, a new elementary and swimming pools. But none of the homes work for us. Well, we discovered another one for sale by owner and he told us that he could show us on Wednesday. So I arranged for my girls to spend the night at a neighbor's and I flew up with Fred Wednesday evening. The guy failed us. His basement (not of the house for sale) flooded and he said he couldn't meet us. !!!!!!! What a waste of time and energy and $280. $287 if you count the snacks I bought in the airport.

The reason I didn't drive is because I need lots of time to get the house packed up and cleaned. I wasn't too worried about this because my mom was coming up. Was. Now she has kidney stones.

So, lots of you have offered your help. I'll take it. Friday and Saturday will be the big packing and cleaning days. Come by anytime. Bring your own gloves. I'll provide the Diet Coke. Which I don't get. Gross. Is it the caffiene that keeps you coming back? Whatever. I'll support the habit if you use the artificial boost on my house. I'll also be serving corn dogs, frozen burritos, ice cream and whatever else is in my fridge and freezer. Thanks. See you all soon.

I'll be there on Friday and the corn dogs and diet coke aren't necessary.

How do I get hold of you? The # I have for you is disconnected. We might be able to come Friday but I would have to bring my 2 kids with me too. So I'm not sure if that would be more of a set back or help.

I'm coming over Friday around 11:00 or so. Sounds like a party!

I wish I could take your kids for you. If there is any way to ship then here than do it.

James is coming to help on Sat. If you want to send your kids here, I'd be happy to have them. I'll help however I can!
