Who wants to help us move!?

So, I'm fairly confident that you're sitting at your computer and your hand just shot up in the air volunteering for this joyous task. I (Mike) sent out an email to the contacts I have but for those that may have slipped through the cracks, I extend an invitation and many thanks in advance.

We're starting at our current address at 8 AM this Saturday (5/1/10) to load the truck.

We hope to start unloading at the new house around 10-ish.

We could use help on either end so if anybody is willing, we'd love to have you and would love for you to see our new home, too.

If you'd like to help, or even think you might be able to, just leave a comment with your email address and we'll send you the details.


New houses are fun but, holy crap, are the a lot of work!

Just finished reading this book. This is actually the 2nd volume. Yes, I've been sucked into another series that apparently hasn't been finished yet. It's a great easy read and very imaginative. I'd place it up there with Harry Potter and Chronicles of Narnia. Lots of magic and mystery for a couple of middle school aged kids. Lots of good twists and irony. Not as predictable as you would imagine. I often get caught up in the climax really worried, not knowing how it will turn out. Who knew reading a book could also raise your heart rate? :) I happened to pick this volume up at Costco for $4.97 (paperback). I love good cheap books. I think I'll go back and just buy the series. I'm sure Brooklyn would like to read it one day.
