Kevin found us a house to rent in Savannah. Yay! Along with the necessities, it has a big backyard for the kids, a 2-car garage to fulfill my storage desires, and a guest room. (Only 15 minutes to the beach, people!)\
I’ve been mourning Wegman’s, our fabulous grocery store. Maybe Savannah will have a great grocery store, but I am not holding my breath. My parents, who live in So Miss, only have two shopping options: a Super Walmart with a bad produce section and a small corner store with a bad produce section. This is why I am not expecting much in Savannah. (Anybody from there and can tell me I’m wrong?)\
Even though we’re moving in a couple of weeks, the kids still want to eat everyday! I had to go to the grocery store for basics like milk and cereal and Popsicles. Apparently canned green beans don’t work well for breakfast or dessert.\
I’ve done the first and second stage of packing- things we don’t use often and things we can do without. I even started on the third stage- stuff that fall under Kevin’s purview and I have no idea what it is, what it does, and whether it is actually worth keeping. I need to move on to the fourth stage now: oddly-shaped, fragile objects. Ugh. But, you know, I am kind of anti-stuff right now, so if it all breaks- oh well.\
Brian has become a little stand-up comedian. “Why did the car drive on the airplane?” Why? “To get to the airport.” There are lots of variations of this- car, boat, airplane, motorcycle. They are all silly, but Brian’s delivery is FAB! I am really sorry Kevin is missing this.\
That’s all folks!


  1. Good luck with the move and getting settled into your new house. Let us know when the guest room is ready for occupancy. 😉 Love Dad

  2. Doesn’t the moving company do all the packing for you? Our moving instructions (although the when and where of moving is still a mystery) say not to pack anything.

  3. Becky,
    Having someone come in and pack for you is extra $$$. Our relocation budget is kind of puny (Hi, new company’s boss, what’s up?) so I am packing myself.

  4. Yeah, new company’s boss, how about springing for the deluxe relocation package! LOL. Every company does things so differently. Tom’s will even buy our house at market value if we can’t sell it for over the appraisal price, which might help- can’t tell with the housing slump here. I can’t wait to see pictures of your new house.

  5. Becky,
    That sounds awesome. Except I don’t know the difference between market value and appraised value. Who determines market value? Sounds like a great back-up plan though. With the market so stinky, we just decided to rent for awhile, which I am sure is a decision I will regret when it is time to move again, ha.

  6. Publix. There’s definitely at least one in Savannah (off 95 on Abercorn or something similar street), but probably more. Great bakery and produce departments, at least in their Florida stores.
