Less than 2 months until moving day and guess who just started sorting and packing things? This mommy! Also have to take the two oldest girls school shopping because they start Aug 29th! And still have to do baby shopping. Oh, and also get things ready for my fiancee's deployment (he leaves on my due date). That means finding someone to stay with the girls/picking them up at school etc. All this has to be done while on restrictions and with family visiting in the next few weeks. Ugh!

DD starts school August 29th as well.. I'm pissed, they have 2 weeks off at the beginning of October and another two in March... What the hell am I supposed to do with her for 2 weeks? Education is really beginning to suck in this country (not that it ever was good to begin with)

I HATE moving! We just moved recently (beginning of June) an I'm still trying to unpack and "decorate"! Ugh. Good luck! Oh, and also, I waited until we only had about TWO WEEKS left before I started packing. Lol

Yikes! Sounds busy! I'm not looking forward to packing and unpacking when we get our house, but I am looking forward to being out of here.

Where do you live? We live in TX and the girls get christmas break and a break in March. I'm curious to see how the educational system here compares to the one in MA (where we lived last year)

 Aww he deploys on your due date? Are you going to be induced before if little one hasn't arrived? I am not a fan of induction but in this case I would be all for it.

 I have been at this apartment for a year and 2 months and I still haven't completely unpacked and gotten organized... We didn't have air for the first 3 months of this summer and it would get to 95 in here and I was just like forget it.. Now I am up to my ears! And Decorate? What is that haha!!!!

ha-- I don't start packing until 2wks before. Then the week before is major packing.

I'm sure all will be fine. Just take it steady and keep your stress down.

AZ, but over here the dates are different for every school district.

Yeah. My dr said she won't induce me. But my cerclage comes out the first week in November (at 36 wks) so this little guy may make an early appearance naturally.
