In the middle of it all


As promised...
here are a couple of shots of the packers doing their thing...



The first day seemed to go well, the second seemed slow...so that brought about their bringing 3 extra people on Friday! It went quicker, but to me, there is still a lot to go.
I realized how much "stuff" we had as I keep seeing them pack, and pack, and pack...


Friday they also loaded a truck with what they had inventoried so far...
It is a bit trickier because we have things going to 2 different spots...
most of the "stuff" inside of all the furniture is going with us to Atyrau; while the furniture itself, and a few bits and pieces that we want for the Key West house, is going to the US.

I think it should work out well...I guess I'll let you know in about 3 months.
Yep, that's the estimated time it takes to receive your goods...it's hard thinking of what to pack when you know you won't see any of it for a long time.
Mostly we took only what we think we will need...
you know those weight limitations on suitcases kill world travelers like us!

Anyways, they will finish up next Monday and Tuesday, and then the kids and I are off to our new adventure! My husband and animals will join us a little later...which will be hard, but hopefully the time will pass by quickly.

More to come on the move next week! Hope you are having a good weekend!

I hope everything goes smoothly for you, and you don't miss anything you really really need and can't replace!

It seems such a huge undertaking! You must have a very organized mind!

autch! you have a lot of stuff!
For us it takes about one day to pack and move everything - but we're only people and no furniture....
Happy Sunday!
