It's really here. Tomorrow I will go to my title company and sign papers promising to pay back more money than I have ever seen in my life, and they will give me the key to the first real asset I have ever owned (I don't consider mid-90s cars assets. Call me crazy). In two days 25 people are coming to my house to load everything I own onto a rented truck and move it 3.6 miles to what will be, I hope, a great new home.

I am running through the entire human emotional experience on a 15 minute cycle, but they are mostly good emotions -- excitement, happiness, and that quivery sort of fear you get in the bottom of your stomach just at the top of a big hill on a roller coaster.

There are a few down sides to all this -- I am going a tiny bit crazy trying to get everything packed, there is a chance of snow on Saturday, which would create quite an issue, and, worst of all, I won't have Internet at home most of next week. Laugh if you will, but I'm an addict, and it will be hard to go without.

So, gentle reader, don't expect to hear from me much in the next week or so, and think good thoughts. I'll let you know how it all goes. Thanks for your support!

Erin! I can't believe it's here already!!! This is so exciting - I'm so happy for you - and understand all the emotions...

Also - we moved with snow last year into our house and it was find. Just find some burlap to put down on the floors (or if you have carpet, that gigantic tape-stuff) so you don't have to worry about tracking in all of the wet stuff from outside.

Best of luck! Can't wait to hear all about it - and you better post some pics when you move in!

oh, wow! This has come so quickly! (maybe not for you?)

Hope you get everything packed and the snow is not a hinderance. 25 people helping you move? That should get done in no time!

Can't wait to see pics and hear how everything went!
