Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a beautiful Mother's day! We are still plugging away so I thought I would show you the "filling of the POD":):) POD stands for Portable on demand storage, in case you didn't know. They bring the POD to your house, you fill it, then they store it til you are ready and deliver it to the new house!!! This is exactly what we needed.
 We started out putting some shelf units that Joe had built in first, then packed things in them and on them.
 All those plastic bins (20 of them) are train cars, in their individual boxes.
 Joe's cousin, Pat came to help us last Sunday.
 This is the armoire from the guest room. It is FILLED.

 These are shots from today. Dave helped us til he and Tracy went to see his Mom, then Joe and I finished.
 It is kind of like putting a puzzle together, trying to fit things in EXACTLY so they don't move or shift.
I wrote on each box what is in it and where it goes in the new house. Hopefully that will make things alot easier and more organized:):)

 This is the last picture I got but now it is filled, to the edge. I packed almost every single box in there. I didn't count but am guessing about 200 or more.
We also got 7 rooms painted this week. It is exhausting but we have our "eye on the prize". It is hard to make a decision about every single thing you own, whether you want to keep it or donate it or just get rid of it. We are probably too old for this but we keep on going:):) Hope you are enjoying the journey with us.
I will post this with these parties and hope you will find some fun, inspiration at them too. Thanks so much for your visit. And for the encouragement and support you give me!
