What Else is Going On

You may think our life is just about diapers and nap times right now, but you’d be missing two other important focuses of our month of April: Boxes and Numbers.
Boxes because we’re actually packing in earnest now. My goal is to get 3 boxes done a day. Yesterday I did 4. Today I did one — but it was a big one! Its very difficult to pack with a one year old around, because he absolutely loves taking things out of boxes. Nonetheless, we’re making some progress in a fairly organized manor. And I’ll have the better part of a month to do the really hard packing after Nic and the kids are back in Canada.

Numbers because we’re running them constantly.
Numbers between 180 and 220 — thousand. The amount we’re thinking we’re willing to spend on a house. My parents want to co-invest in a place with us, and although we weren’t sure we wanted to look at buying until 2009, having some extra capital kind of accelerates the schedule.
Numbers between 1 and 3. The number of months we’ll essentially have to “squat” in an apartment before we can pull off the actual move into this house we’re going to buy, all our stuff but the bare essentials in storage somewhere so we don’t have to do 2 full moves in 3 months or less.
Numbers between 12 and 19. The number of days before I move my whole family back to Canada, and am once again alone in New York, living off KD, Chunky Soup (oh ya, and left-over Ziti from Sarah.)
Yup, this is going to be a challenging summer. But I suppose it wouldn’t be any fun if it wasn’t just a little bit challenging!
Oh, and word to our Northway friends. We’re going to be at Northway Church – Malta this coming Saturday evening, probably the 6:30 service, and Northway Church – Clifton Park this Sunday, probably the 11:30 service. We’re looking forward to visiting you all and introducing you to Abigail!
And now here’s more of what you’re really here for…
