A Packing Maniac

I have been a packing maniac lately. First, I flew to Spokane to help dad and Dorothy move.

Then a lovely few weeks helping Jenny pack and settle in her new home.

And now, the joy of spending two day with my dear friend, Kate, in Minneapolis. We packed like crazy women ... and talked while we packed.

 
This was the first box I packed. Together we packed almost 90 boxes.
 
Kate is the creative artist that designed my blog caricature. Originally it was a picture of her and me. When I started blogging, I called and asked if she would mind redoing it ... without her! Now that is a sweet friend.

  1. That's a whole lotta packing Glenda ~ I am also a master packer and thankfully have not had to do it for awhile. Happy week-end!

  3. Glenda,
    I'm sure you are not only an efficient packer but make the whole process fun as well!
    Now I'll know who to call when my time comes to pack and move.
    Enjoy the upcoming weekend.

  6. You are indeed a great packer. And fast decision maker. And fun. I'm glad I got to help you when it was your move. Glad to help. Less glad about the move...at the time, although I am now thrilled you are in Chicago. :)

  13. Even packing can be fun when done with friends. I hope your back is holding up to all those filled boxes. I'll call you the next time I move--which I hope to be a long, long time. I hate moving. I do like setting up a new house though.

  18. Oh my goodness, Glenda, you are one busy lady! And a true friend. Packing is not fun, but clearly you had fun anyway, chatting with your friend and helping your family. You are a huge blessing, and I'm sure they're all grateful for you!

  19. Wow! That's a ton of packing! I cringe just thinking about packing, I am really not good at packing. Hope you had a good time with your friend. We had good weather for your visit!

  21. That's so funny that you call yourself a packing maniac Glenda. Before we left for England I helped my son and daughter in law do some packing to move to their new home. They call me a "packing machine" - once I get going, i am a force to be reckoned with :) So we have yet another thing in common :)

  22. Packing must be good for the figure...or maybe it was all the talking?
