I'm gonna miss them so much.
Packing is not glamorous. There is absolutely no redeeming quality about it. We have spent hours each day for over a week now packing up boxes, taking trips to the the consignment store, dumpster diving for more boxes and newspaper, and trying to get things organized and clean. It feels surreal. No more Utah. No more Sunday dinners with my parents. I sure hope Ellie likes California!
