And so it Begins... Again
"I'm going to start packing now" Byron announced on his way out the door. He was using his serious "I"m warning you" voice.
"Congratulations!" I said in my cheeky voice. I like to counter "Serious Boy" with "Cheeky Girl."
He was on his way out for his Monday morning coffee with Scott but he was announcing none-too-subtly that from here on out we are in packing mode. That means that we are not stuffing our junk in the back of closests anymore. No, we are now officially either throwing out what is not going with us, or finding the appropriate piece of luggage and placing it inside. Actually, the luggage part is probably still a week or so off, but we are at least in the sorting/pre-packing phase now.
Can I tell you how much I hate packing? Have I mentioned it before?
Someone recently asked me how long we plan to be in Tanzania. With as many international moves as I have notched on my suitcases I answered somewhat wearily. "I'm not planning to move again any time soon so unless there is a Major Act of God, we're in Tanzania till kingdom come."
Ah, the fun of it all!
