Random Tuesday... It's All I've Got.


I have approximately 200 cubic feet of belongings to ship to America. 90% of it is stacked in my living room. The rest of our household we are getting rid of. It's a weird life we're living right now.

We (Nid and the children) got approved for their US visas last week. Now the countdown to their adjustment of status in two years and citizenship in three. My life is one big countdown...

I just ordered my second 700 foot roll of bubble wrap. That's a lot of bubbles.

I think that pigeons are smarter than we give them credit for. They have been trying to build a nest in our alley, and we've been chasing them away with a tennis racket. Yesterday tennis racket to pigeon contact was made and they haven't come back. I would have though it would have taken more effort on our part. 

Stop by Keely's Blog at the UnMom for more randomness!

Good luck with the move. It's never easy. Just moved across the US last month and also took the opportunity to purge. Keep us posted!

LOL! "Yesterday tennis racket to pigeon contact was made and they haven't come back." That is the funniest statement I've read in a long time!

LOL - Jenny, I didn't know you played tennis. And did Nid kick the bird in the goal after the contact?
After you install the bubble wrap, will the 200cf become 300cf? Hope not!

ok i have so many questions. i want my next husband to have an accent

Jenny said...

crazylovescompany - Thanks.

Travel & Dive Girl - I was trying to make it not sound like out and out animal abuse. Guess I succeeded :)

david - I don't play. Well, not well anyway (just ask Nid). He was the one swinging, I'm just keeping score. Probably! I'm using so much bubble wrap it's not even funny. But I don't want to be the one responsible for some irreplaceable treasured heirloom getting broken.

Brandy - Yes, an accent is a very nice feature in a man.
