Well my livingroom is packed sky high with boxes and stuff that Kelli has packed for school. I think she's getting close to being done. At least I hope so, since we're leaving Wednesday morning early to take her to college. The rest of us are getting close to being packed too, although I'm not sure there's going to be room enough in the van for our stuff. lol
If you're interested, click on the link in the sidebar to Kelli's blog and get an interesting take on her thoughts of leaving her room. I don't think she's going to miss any of us to much, but it sounds like she's really gonna' miss that room. I haven't gone in and looked yet to see if it's about empty or not. I imagine from all the boxes in the livingroom it must be. I bet if I looked I'd even be able to see what color the carpet is. You see it's been a long time since anyone has even been able to see it. Here are a couple pictures. Oh and by the way, I grabbed these from her blog, so it's nothing she minds being in the internet. Actually, I have to be honest, these are from her being in the process of packing. (But honestly, it got about this bad quite often, even before she ever started packing for school)
A clean room has never been a priority to Kelli. And at about age 10-12 I finally decided it just wasn't worth the battle anymore and I just learned to leave the door closed. I figured that's what doors are for anyway. There are enough battles worth fighting for, but this was one that wasn't. She was happier and I was happier to not be yelling for the room to be cleaned. And as long as I didn't have to go in the room, there was no problem!
Now, though I'm a little concerned for her college roommates. Hope they like a bit of a mess! lol
I probably won't be back to post for a couple days. Hopefully, I'll get some pictures of our trip and be able to show you a little of where she is and of the moving process. Then our plans are to stay a few extra days and Tracy, Kerri and I hope to go to the beach and do a few other fun things. So I'll probably be talking to you soon.
Sure would appreciate some prayers for a safe trip and hopefully not too many tears upon departure.
