We move way to much!

On July 28th We moved out of the house we were living in. We weren't quite sure yet where we were going to move from there so we had to put all of our things in storage in San Diego. We had kept most of our things in boxes since our last move so it wasn't as bad as it could have been but, it was a really long couple of days. I was exhausted! We got to San Diego at about 10:30 on Monday night. That night we tried packing and organizing some things in the garage but that wasn't going so well so we decided to call it a night and get some sleep. Tuesday morning we woke up around 7:20 and picked up the moving truck and then got busy packing and loading up the truck. Of course Logan did most of the loading! I had the hard job of organizing, lifting small items, and moral support for Logan. Everytime we move we decide that we have too much stuff and need to get rid of some things before our next move and so we get rid of things. At the rate of how often we move we will soon have nothing! j/k We had a lot of great help from some friends. Kris is so good at packing things in just perfectly. Without him I'm not sure that we would have fit everything into our 9 by 9 storage unit. When I asked him how he got so good at packing he told me it was from playing a lot of tetris. haha. Back to the subject of the 9 by 9 storage unit. For some reason Logan always thinks that we can fit our stuff into really small spaces. The last couple times we have moved he has underestimated how much stuff we have. Though I must admit he is getting better. This time our moving truck was big enough not like last time or the time before. But, he did underestimate how much room we would need in storage. We ended up having to upgrade to a bigger storage unit and it just barely fit into that! We are so lucky to have good friends that are so willing to help us out when we need it! Thanks guys!

Logan doing all the heavy lifting... I really lucked out this time!

I just wanted to let you guys know that because of this blog you saved me(konni) a lot of time, energy and some arguments. We had to get all of our stuff out of our condo this weekend because we sold it and it's closing on wednesday. We moved in with Sterling's parents to save money for adoption and stuff so we had to get a storage unit to store all of our stuff. I kept telling Sterling that we needed to get one that was a little bigger. He kept saying that we could fit everything in a 5X5. I showed him your blog and he seemed to understand that it would take much more work to get a small one and then have to move up. SOooo... we got a little bit larger one and everything worked out fine the first time. Thanks for proving my point for me. I'm not preggo so I couldn't get out of not moving all of that stuff twice. (although, I got out of it anyway. That's a different story.)I hope you guys are doing well. I'm very jealous that your pregnany and having a baby but I'm happy for you too. I am very proud to be your cousin and talk about your accomplishments. We love you guys!!! Hope we can see you soon!!
