We had a great time at our going away party on Saturday night. My parents invited a bunch of our friends and we had fun playing games, spending time with people, eating dinner, etc. It really was a lot of fun! They all spent a few minutes praying for us and our move (which is now less than 2 weeks away) and even got everyone to sign a picture frame which we'll take with us.
As far as our plans go, things are moving right along. Our truck is reserved, a ton of boxes are packed, and I've made all kinds of phone calls to cancel various services up here and start said services at the new place.
Our apartment is really starting to look like a packing zone...boxes filling an entire corner of the living room and other areas getting steadily emptier and emptier. There's still a lot to do, but we're making serious progress and we'll definitely be done in a week and a half...we hope. :-)
The updates are likely to come faster now, so be sure you stay tuned!
