Bill & Jester had a little r&r time at the cabin with Nana & Papa these past few days while Drew and I have been frantically (okay, that's exaggerating a little) running around doing errands and packing our suitcases. I kinda wish I was in Bill's shoes right now. Having Nana look after my every little need would be pretty sweet right about now. My stomach has never been put through this many butterflies at one time and for this amount of time. My dad always says, "you just need to get those butterflies to fly in formation." Realistically this will only happen when I'm on the airplane...after all the good byes have been said, after all our stuff is packed, after all the loose ends have been tied up. Then perhaps those darn butterflies will get it together.
I'm amazed that practically everything we need for the next 2 years all fits in 6 bags. It helps that Drew is a packing expert. You should see how small he can make a t-shirt by rolling it up. You probably would have trouble believing it. I'll admit my suitcase is the biggest and the fullest....all the more reason to be thankful for Drew's incredible packing skills. Women require more stuff than men.
