There’s a very real possibility these bans will lift one day and we’ll be expected to get the heck out the next.

So packing here we come! Really it’s Garrett doing the work. He woke up this morning and was like, “I think I could probably pack the entire house today!!!” I politely told him I’m not living around a bunch of moving boxes for potentially months so he needs to slow his roll. Did he listen? Absolutely not. This man made not one but TWO runs for packing supplies today because he went through his first round of items so quickly. I’ve never seen the man so motivated and jazzed about a project. However, he did require supervision because he tried to throw away multiple items he claimed I never use but that are very important like my clothes steamer!!!
