Moving on Up...

Yup, we are moving!  J officially accepted a position in NJ on Monday night.  The only catch is that since it's a transfer within his current company, he starts next Monday!!  Yes, the Monday that is 6 days away!  Needless to say it's been full out chaos here ever since.  Thankfully my mother in law is here to help manage the chaos and kids.  I know I'm one lucky lady!!

Now I'm heading up the task of "how the hell I'm going to get this all done and in NJ as soon as possible"????  We are going to be crashing at the inlaws until our house here is taken care of, so most of our stuff will be going in storage.  So far we've packed up the things that aren't essential for survival, and have been going through other stuff.  I'm using this as an excuse to purge the crap that has accumulated over the last 5 years, but that's a challenge in itself.  All I can say is thank god for Freecycle!!

Then there are the calls to make: dr's offices, schools, utilities, etc.  It's just so overwhelming!  Thank god I'll be heading out tomorrow night for dinner with friends and a much needed margarita! :)

Back to the coal mines now, but I'll post again soon.  I'm not sure when, but it will be soon I promise!  I'm sure all 3 of you who read my blog will miss me! ;)  See you on the other side!!

They Say It's My Birthday...

Happy Birthday to me!! My birthday celebration started yesterday with a massage (ooohhh...soooo nice!) and then a Black Crowes concert with my sister. The massage was heavenly and definitely broke up the knots in my back. I'm actually sore! :) The concert was awesome. Sooo much fun! We were supposed to have lawn seats but decided to upgrade them and wound up in the 3rd row! It was worth the extra $18!!!

J surprised me with my gift after I got home at 12:30 am. He got me a beautiful birthstone family ring. It has the girls stones on it and looks great! It's a custom order so it's not here yet, but once it is, I'll post a picture. Needless to say, he scored major points with that one!! :)

To top off my birthday fun, I found out I am a winner of a bloggy giveaway!! Mel, over at A Dramatic Mommy, and her random number generator chose me to win a $10 gift card to Starbucks and a $10 to B&N! Score!! So mosey on over to Mel and thank her along with me! to clean and run to the store, but I'll be back with another post later. Big things happening here, so stay tuned!
