PCS Part One - Check!

On Friday afternoon, movers/packers came to pick up our unaccompanied baggage! So now, a small portion of our schtuff is on its way to Georgia!


I thought we'd have more stuff to send ahead, but this is all I could think of at the time! The one thing I was really kind of upset about was sending my red pots and pans that you can see on the bar there. They're my absolute favorite and I use them everyday. I'm so not thrilled about using my stainless steel everything-sticks-to-them pans. BUT, I only have to deal with them for another month!

Funny story: Joe told the people at transportation to estimate 1,000 pounds for our unaccompanied baggage! Hahahaha! How on earth could we possibly use that much weight?! You can't send furniture or anything else "big." Ah, my husband. =) Stand back, ladies. He's all mine. LOL

We've got lodging set up here for when the rest of our stuff goes. We need to set it up on the other end, too. Our flights are booked.

Just one step closer to getting off this rock and back to the mainland! One. More. Month! =)

We came pretty close to our weight limit on UB. I had my husband stand on our scales and weigh everything! LOL We sent pots/pans, mixer, silverware, dishes, laundry baskets, hangers, sheets, pillows, a twin mattress, a few small kitchen appliances, and ALL OF OUR CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS!!!! That is what happens when you PCS the end of October ;)

Wow! So close! I'm sure this month will fly by. Where are you staying before you leave? We stayed at the Embassy Suites Waikiki and it was hands down the best decision ever ;)

I don't know, weight goes really fast when shipping. I guess it's better to overestimate than underestimate though.
