We're not the Jeffersons, but...

...we're moving on up!  North, that is!  I know, that's not exactly new news.  However, we have now officially settled on a week for the "big move".  We're giving ourselves a solid week for this particular Shangri La project.  After careful consideration and a painstaking decision making process, the dart hit the calendar on the week of July 10th!  

We'll be moving the majority of our stuff up that week, with some few items being left in Ohio for Shelly and Kyle.  While Michael and I will be staying in Ocqueoc after the move, Shelly and Kyle will be heading back to Ohio.  Kyle will be attending college at Capital University in Bexley, Ohio and isn't moving into the dorm until mid-August.  So, we will be dividing and conquering.  We considered waiting to make the move until late August, but there are some projects at Shangri La that unfortunately can't be put off that long.  Michael and I are going to team up for those while Shelly is getting Kyle settled in to the dorm.  Then, after he's situated she'll head on up.  It's going to be a very strange month with the family divided between two households.  Very strange, indeed.

I know that it's just selecting a week on the calendar, but this just feels BIG.  We now not only know how and what we'll be doing...we know exactly when.  

We're still in negotiations on who will get custody of Peanut for that month.

More to follow as the date gets closer!
