  5. Congrats, you're in! What happened to Kona? (reminds me of the last time we moved....we left a door slightly open, and Daisy (our lab) went on a running tour though the neighborhood, across streets, etc. Totally scared me to death! Never happened again though!!) Enjoy your new digs :)

  6. I can't believe you scheduled your party for just a few days after your move! How stressful! And believe me, we won't judge if there are still a few unpacked boxes sitting around when we get there. :)

  12. Man, I hate moving. But, on the bright side, once you're done, you won't have to do it again for a long time!

  15. I hope Kona is okay! Only two trips to Home Depot? That's massive efficiency in my book! I was averaging two trips per hour for three days. And we have more stuff arriving this Friday from Dallas. Sigh. You'll be done beore me! Moving sucks.

  16. Number 1 is bad! A broken toe, near death experience, meltdown? You poor thing! I hate moving and it sounds like no exception for you guys. So sorry!

  17. Comcast is awful. Two moves ago, we had to have them come five times? I think. It was awful. I wish you better luck.

  18. Wait you move to someone else in DC? Why is everybody moving?

  19. Yick, moving is such a hassle. So daunting. Good luck and I hope AJ's toe feels better soon.

  20. sounds about right for a move! i am still in the process a week and a half later. ugh!

  21. hooray for moving!! (not the moving part, i hate that!) and that's funny when you say countless arguments, because i would have classified it as 1 argument that almost made me want to pack up and move far far away by myself ;)

    glad Kona is okay!!!!!
