chicken toothpaste

Jason arrived in California last night. He's staying in a barracks room (with TWO mini-fridges, people), but said he's going to buy a sleeping bag and camp out in our new place when our lease starts on April 1.

That's right, we got the townhouse I mentioned previously! I have to mail my signed lease papers tomorrow so Jason can get our keys next week.

For our move, I don't technically have to pack anything. All of it is taken care of by the military movers. Unfortunately, we have so much clutter that I have to at least find a drawer or shelf for things so there aren't random pieces of junk sitting around everywhere. I've been Freecycling like crazy, so that has helped some. Unfortunately most of this crap is mine, so I can't blame it on Jason. Men don't really have knick-knacks. I have more than I know what to do with. I'll do some more culling over the weekend, but time is running out.

Moving on, I've been meaning to report some good news about Jasper: a couple of weeks ago we had his blood sugar levels tested, and his diabetes is finally under control. The cross-country drive and new home are probably going to throw him all out of whack, but at least we've found a kind of insulin that works for him.

I'll have to keep working on the tooth-brushing.

I love how Jasper looks at you like he KNOWS you're up to something, so he has to be careful with the licking.

Congrats on the town house!

It looks like Lola got her TONGUE cleaned. LOL

Safe travels and that's great news on Jasper. Hope he doesn't stress out on the trip too badly.

I am so jealous that you don't have to pack anything for your move. Packing is the WORST.

I was about to say you should have a yard sale but I don't imagine those are doing very well right now. And it's probably about 20 degrees where you are.

ALF - I consider not having to pack anything a trade-off for having to move every four years or so.

Cary - If we had a yard I'd go for it. The weather here is bipolar right now. It snowed last week. This afternoon it was 67.
