Our furniture is gone and on its way to its new home now. The guys packed us up yesterday and loaded us today. We were supposed to keep our bed until tomorrow, but the weather is supposed to get bad through the pass into Montana and Jack didn't want to risk it, so we'll be sleeping on the floor with no bedding tonight. At least Abby has her Pack-N-Play. She's been taking naps in it today and has been sleeping really well. She took a 2-hour nap this morning! That's the longest nap she's taken in a long time. I was really surprised because there was so much noise in the house with the guys hauling the furniture out. It gave me a chance to vacuum as much as I could before it got loaded on the truck. It's so strange to walk through our empty house.

They had a farewell get-together for us at Damon's work this afternoon. The first one was in the lobby of the Assisted Living building. Abby was completely overwhelmed by all the people. She clung to Damon until the end. Then she was finally comfortable enough to walk around a bit. Even then, though, she was still really shy. Next, we walked over to the Independent Living dining room. There, we couldn't hold on to her. She was a completely different kid! She completely stole the show running between the tables, squealing "DA!" and pointing at Damon whenever she came by him, and just being the adorable toddler she is. I couldn't keep up with her. I had to keep an eye on her on the way home because she was exhausted. She fell asleep a couple times, so I'd tap on her shoe to wake her up. At one point, she took her shoe off, but fell asleep while trying to take her sock off. We made it home and she's now crashed in her Pack-N-Play again.

Tomorrow is Damon's last day of work here. He'll put in a full day at work, then we'll just stop in Coeur D'Alene for the night. It's only a half hour away, but at least it's in the right direction. We don't want to drive through the pass at night, particularly if the weather is going to be ugly. I need to finish cleaning the house tomorrow and I need to pick up the garage door opener. I forgot to take it out of the Tercel when they picked it up on Friday. Oops!

It's so exciting to read about your move. Especially since I am so jealous about you moving at all. Good luck.
