It's still raining in Florida. I think it's been five days now withoutour sunshine. Just thought you would like to know.

Because of the previously stated drear, I have been having hard times staying awake. Okay, well, maybe I don't know for sure if it is from our rainy weather or not, because I guess I have been tired now for almost 3 weeks! It might just be from all the stress of traveling/packing/moving. I had mono a couple of years ago, and it's not quite like that fatigue, but it is to the point that I am sleeping 10 hours straight! I am weird about my sleep, 6-8 hours is what I need, but it's very possible that I am sleeping longer simply because I have nothing else to do!

Memorial Day really snuck up on me this year! I'm not sure what we are going to do yet, because we only yesterday found out Ian had off work! We were plannng on heading out to Crescent Beach, but weather forcasts predict rain for the next 10 days! I bought us some hot dogs and baked beans, so we'll probably end up having Sam over and watching a movie or playing a game. Not that that's different from what we do every night! haha.

Did I mention I don't have my car for two weeks? Yeah, I decided to leave it in Orlando, so that when Ian and I finally leave Gainesville to move back home, we could drive off in the sunset together...... I'm sentimental like that, lol.

On a more positive note, I have gotten one whole box packed! Yahoo! It's really quite a feat of engineering skills. Plus, I don't think I mentioned what I have to do while I pack. I have to type every single item that goes into that box, into a document entitled "packing list." Seriously. You can't just write "DVD's"

Here is a sample of our "box one:"
Box One
Friends- Season 1
Friends- Season 2
Friends- Season 3
Friends- Season 4
Friends- Season 5
Friends- Season 6
Friends- Season 7
Friends- Season 8
Friends- Season 9
Friends- Season 10
Gilmore Girls- Season 1
Gilmore Girls- Season 2
Gilmore Girls- Season 3
Gilmore Girls- Season 4
Gilmore Girls- Season 5
Gilmore Girls- Season 6
Lois and Clark- The new Adventures of Superman- Season 1
Lois and Clark- The New Adventures of Superman- Season 2
The Office- Season 1
The Office- Season 2
The Office- Season 3
Band of Brothers- miniseries, collector’s edition
Disney’s Aladdin- Special Edition
Anastasia- Family Fun Edition
Disney’s 101 Dalmations- 2 disc platinum edition
Disney’s Beauty and the Beast- Special Edition

And that's just the first third of box one! (also, I know you will want to rag on me for my superman series, but don't even try. I am proud-kind of, of that childhood favorite!)

I've finished the DVD's and Ian and I have pulled out our books that we want to read for the next 7 months, and today, my job is to get seven boxes of books packed and listed!

Also, that extensive list gets revised 2 more times, once it is completed. The first time, we have to go through and assign a "garage sale," value to each and every item, for customs purposes. The second time, we have to go through and assign a "replacement" value to each and every item, for insurance purposes. Garage sale pricing will be easy, but we will have to research the cost of almost every item we own for the replacement value.

That's all for now. I am still stalling on that conference post. It will come soon, I promise!

Haha!! I love that you have all of the Friends seasons on DVD!! I LOVE that show and I am actually watching some episodes online right now! While doing my wedding registry, I wanted to put them on there but Hubby said no because we didnt "need" them. HA!

On my goodness gracious, Britt, that is quite a task! That's more like OCD packing style. Have fun with that one :) Maybe the rain can be a motivator because you can't go outside and enjoy the sunshine - you have to stay in. Maybe, though, not 100%. I love you chica!

Wow, sounds like a lot of work! Good luck packing

Ha! You're so organized. But you probably won't lose anything in the move that way, which is important. And don't feel bad for Louis and Clark - I watched that show too, and I wouldn't mind seeingit again. *smile*
