Packing Has Started

I spent a couple hours today starting to pack for our first trip up to Oregon in a couple of weeks. Since we're going to be so tight on space, I'm trying to figure out what we most need for that first trip. Today, I packed up bedding, towels and toiletries. And also started packing dog supplies. We'll probably start packing kitchen gear this weekend. Luckily, since our SCA gear is already up there, we'll mostly be able to pull out that cooking gear to use temporarily.

I still spend too much time during the day cruising around the internet looking for design ideas, paint stripping advice and for furniture. I found this dragon fireplace tool set recently, and wish I could justify the expense, but the price is just too high! But, wow! Want!

This evening I began looking into our moving options. We're looking at either a DIY move with a UHaul truck, or maybe a move where they bring containers out to your house and you fill them and then they drive them up to the destination. We're looking for an economical solution that won't make us too crazy. But, we can't really justify the expense of a full-service move. Oh well. Though, probably the best cost saving option for us is to continue to downsize. The less we have to move, the less we'll have to pay.

  1. Love the dragon fireplace tools! Maybe when you get to PDX, you can commission Grendal to make a set. :)
