The Calm Before the Storm

Well today is a nice break from the madness. Since it is President's day all of the government offices are closed so there isn't much work that we can do today. We are praying that we have everything at the property ready for the madness that starts tomorrow.

Shalisa and I are finishing up the packing (okay, lets be honest here, Shalisa is finishing up the packing, I am just saying whether I want this shirt or that shirt). The plan is that both of our suitcases are completely packed up by the end of the day today, that way on Tuesday we can spend all of the time we need on the house, and Wednesday we can leave right at 5:00 to head off to Portland.

We really want to say a big thank you to Tom and Shirley as well. They have opened up their house to Shalisa and I this Wednesday night. It will be so nice to be able to wake up Thursday morning and be much closer to the airport than we would be if we were in Shelton. Not only are they giving us a place to sleep, but they are also taking us to the airport as well, which we are really thankful for as well. This will save us a lot of money on parking at the airport, and Shalisa and I need all the savings we can get.

Not much else going on here today, Stephanie and Matt are supposed to arrive some time around noon. I am sure that we will take them out to the property and maybe go for a hike or something (this is some beautiful weather we are getting) so that will be a nice diversion for the day.

If anyone is interested, this is the website I have been visiting the most in the last few days: Link
