Is this worth it??

Sigh.... my carefree days of daydreaming of Hawaii and blogging away are gone. The past week has been a non-stop frenzy of activity. With our tenants moving in tomorrow, we've been preparing to vacate our house by tonight. Which means this week has been spent cleaning, packing, organizing, lifting, moving, cursing, and pulling back muscles. We've realized that we have a lot more stuff than we previously thought. Our original plans for a 5x5 storage unit seem laughable now - we've filled to capacity a space twice that size. I must admit, there have been times during this week when I've wondered to myself whether this will all be worth it in the end. Upon hearing the news of our move, some people have reacted as if we were crazy - and now I'm starting to see their point.

The good news is that we can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. We're down to the wire now, with not much left to do except a little bit of laundry and final packing and a quick vacuum job. Tonight we'll move to our temporary digs in Rockville, our gracious friend Christine's apartment. From there, it'll just be a matter of counting down the six short days until we hit the road.
