Mid-July Update - July 16, 2014

I've been really terrible about updating over the last month so the catching up begins now!

Outside my window...a high of 79 degrees forecast for today with scattered thunderstorms and a high of 85 forecast for Bremerton - ok, that sort of weather has to stop now!
I am STILL thinking...about everything that has to be done before we move.

I am thankful...for an amazing home inventory app - MyStuff2 for my iPad.

From the kitchen...Vic's cooking tonight so it's chicken adobo.

I am hearing...the clock ticking.
One of my favorite things...all the methods we have for keeping in touch with friends, no matter how far away we may be...e-mail, Facebook, Skype, Christmas cards and newsletters, not to mention phone calls.

I am STILL reading...Crocodile on the Sandbank by Elizabeth Peters...not far to go now but there never seems to be a moment to pick it up.

A Few Plans for the Rest of the Week...meeting a co-worker at the Tidewater Collection sometime this week as her sister from Washington is in town, eye appointment for Sophia tomorrow and haircuts for both of us on Friday. 

College Update...all quiet on the college front.

Volunteer Update...all volunteer positions are turned over although I am filling in this week since the new Volunteer Coordinator is out of town and I'm on call to make change as the Bookkeeper is gone as well.  They just won't let me go!

Travel and Family Field Trips Update...I should call this the Moving, Travel and Family Field Trips Update so I can bring you all up to speed.  The move is all planned - packing July 29 and 30 with loading on the 31st.  Vic will check out of his command on Friday, August 1 and we will turn over the house keys on that day.  We'll be on the road on Saturday, August 2 and proceed via Ohio-Illinois-Nebraska-South Dakota-Montana to Washington, hopefully arriving on August 9.  We pick up the keys to our new home on August 10 and aim to have everything (vehicles and household goods) delivered during the week of August 11.  The house is about 60% inventoried and Vic is sealing up the Rubbermaid totes so that the lids stay secure.  The oven is clean so that can be checked off the to-do list.  We will take the furniture that we are not moving to the transfer station on Sunday, July 27 and drop the two vehicles (Vic's truck and Sophia's car) to be shipped on Monday, July 28.  Things are coming together.
