Today is mostly about getting out of working, cleaning, etc...
I did clean out the fridge, freezer, and pantry and gave a bunch of unstorable and underused food items to Amy. I believe it forced her into a cleaning frenzy to figure out where to put it all. The new house has a pantry the size of a linen closet, which is about half the size of our current pantry. That said, I have to downsize greatly in the amount of food I store in our pantry. I may have to start buying foods we will actually eat now! Novel thought...
I packed up some various items in Lauren's room - that is really all that is left in the house - various items. Some will go into the garage and some will go with me to Vegas for now. The garage is packed with the TV (which better be there when we get back to pick it up - Nicole, Amy!), couches, and boxes. I did not do a great job at labeling boxes, so it will be a lot like Christmas when we move in to the house. I am hoping it will not be Christmas when we move in!!!
We haven't heard anything on a close date yet, but our agent is thinking it should be relatively soon. We have everything done on our part so far, it is all on the bank now. Shane will be coming back to Tucson (maybe Lauren and me as well) to pick up our stuff from the garage.
I have been researching churches near us to find some we can "try before we buy". I found one that really looks a lot like our current one, so I am hoping to give it a whirl soon.

It looks like a lot of fun for all of us. I may even be able to start a Vegas "Dinner for Six".
I am also trying to research GPS units. I want one for the car, but am also thinking we may start geocaching as a family hobby. Is there a unit that will be good with both? We aren't looking for extreme geocaching, just some easy hikes and such and possibly on road trips. I was reading you want a waterproof one because it will get wet...yeah, right...I am pretty sure my kind of geocaching will not involve forging rivers for trinkets!
