Lately in the Johannes household

This past week and weekend has been a total whirlwind for us. Me, cramming in as much time as possible with friends & family and packing; Robby, shoring up his job situation for California and being my saving grace throughout all of this.

I really must say that garage sales and Craig’s List are brilliant. We sold SO much last week, which has really put us ahead. However, I almost cried when someone carted away our ping-pong table.

In other updates, Lucy is officially starting her bikini diet (great idea, Steph!). She is a little plumpy right now, so I’ve cut her food intake and have her on a strict walking regimen.

Rob says this is her sexy face.

Tacoma went in for his first grooming and mani/pedi this morning at Petsmart. I got him a toy for his good behavior and the sweetheart that he is shared it with Lucy.


Until she was over it.

I used this morning to do our change of address, packed up a few last things and planned out our general itinerary. I also noticed while packing that I’m not the best speller:

With all my down time lately I’ve been reflecting a lot on how amazing and hilarious my friends are. How each have carved a special place in my heart forever. I am truly so happy when I’m around them and don’t know what I’m going to do without them!!! You know who you are!! I also couldn’t have done this move without my parents, who have been so willing to help us pack and sell things – fix bubblers, pack food for the road and lend us some things we really need. They’re really the best and I’m going to miss them terribly.

Am feeling anxious and really sad all at the same time. I think it’s a good thing though. No regrets. Well, until Wednesday, I’m going to go enjoy this beautiful, breezy Arizona weather… Santa Cruz, here we come!
