Renting, Packing, & Waiting

It's done. It's gone. It's all moving along now. We closed on the condo on Friday, August 6th. Now we're renting the place that we used to own. Almost all of the packing is done and I've started ripping out the carpet.... Ok, I'll put it here so that I don't have to go over it again.

So now I've got to rent a truck and round up the rest of my friends. I can't wait.
