8 Days

12D vision! (3DX4)
Today I finished taking everything out of the attic with the exception of pictures and suitcases which will come down on Tuesday, so that was very satisfying. On the other hand I plugged the entire hallway with boxes and bags, so there is still lots of work to be done. Then again, what else is new?

What I did learn this weekend is that when you go up and down a ladder many many times carrying heavy things you better wear shoes. My legs aren't as exhausted as I feared they'll be, no jelly wobbly limbs, but my right foot on the other hand feels a bit weird and sore. Well, I emptied the attic and got a free life lesson in the process. Great bargain!

We met friends for lunch who then came to our home to pick a few useful things we won't be taking with us. Then I threw away some things into the skip. We need to order a new skip tomorrow as we're pretty much out of space. We also have to pop out and take care of lots of little things in preparation for the big move. We'll also be getting the small boxes tomorrow so proper packing can finally start. Lots of alsos.

I was pleasantly surprised to find lots of my of stuffed toys from years ago in one of the suitcases and I let Blake play with them. At the beginning of our relationship Miron and I (well, mostly me) collected soft toys from everywhere we went. At some point there were too many of them and they were just collecting dust, so they went into the suitcase in the attic. Now there's a kid hanging around who can appreciate them the way they deserve to be! So they're all coming with us to Winnipeg.

This is it. Tomorrow the countdown of the last week begins. The milk I bought a couple of days ago will outlive our time in the UK. The big move is really just around the corner.

And tonight it finally sank in, I think. I realized that this is it. It's happening and it's happening soon. We already have a home waiting for us on the other side, but I am still nervous about the trip via Toronto, especially where the dogs are concerned. Doesn't matter. It's going to happen and I just have to be ready!

Holy crackers, it's really happening.

Yes, it's really happening and I'm so happy for you. You will be tired and worried for awhile but by this time, next year, you'll be writing about how it seems you have lived in Winnipeg forever.
