Yesterday was a smashing success. It reminds me of how lucky and how blessed we are, because so many people love us so much that they're willing to spend large chunks of a Saturday helping us load stuff into cardboard boxes. Thanks to our friends who came out to work with us: Erik, Evan & Kate, Alla & Matt & the kids, Linda, Tracey & Cody, Uncle B. My garage is entirely full of boxes & furniture & stuff, and the former workout room is packed to the brim as well. The important stuff (furniture and piano) will be loaded first into the truck on Wednesday, then we'll pack as many boxes as possible into the truck. Looking at the amount of stuff, we'll need another truck, but it's worth it to us to do that. I mean, I like my lawn mower and my edger and stuff, and I want all of that stuff to be in Pittsburgh with us.
Besides, the people at my wife's now-former district were unbelievably generous in their contributions to help us. Her principal actually stopped by personally yesterday. Again, it shows us that G-d helps in unexpected ways. I think this might be a sign that we're doing the right thing, but it's hard to tell.
Funny story: The Boy was doing a kind-of duck walk, and I said, "The Boy, do you need a new diaper?" He said, "New diaper... you bet!!!! you bet!!!" It was very funny and very, very cute. He's been quite good at telling us when he needs a new diaper because of poop, and I'm happy about that.
