Is ongoing.

6 guys descended on our house with box cutters, tape, bubble wrap, etc. and are currently spread out in our living room working like people who work really hard (nice simile, eh?)

They are fast, and good. So much so that I will probably go to work tomorrow even though I am given 2 days for packout.

The current state of the kitchen.

And the living room.

And the son.

Tomorrow we'll be in an empty house.

So sad.

16 days to go.

So what exactly do you do for 16 days with no stuff? I'm (hopefully) headed for A-100 in September, and I'm really quite perplexed (and a little scared) about this. Especially the baby stuff...

Well, we have the stuff we will take with us on the flight, and we still have a house full of Embassy furniture.

You know, a baby gets two bags on the plane too, so long as he has a seat...and he does.

It's actually quite liberating to see all your junk go away and realize you don't really need it all.
