Are you packed yet? We get this question a lot and it isn't that easy to answer. We've been "packing" for many months by cleaning out the house for the renters. That feels really good.
And we've been planning the packing for weeks and weeks.
We've packed up the kitchen now and all of the rooms are basically ready for the renters with mostly empty closets, empty dressers, etc. Everything is pretty clean, even the garage got some sweeping action today!
Finally today, two days before we leave, we actually began putting things into suitcases. But tomorrow is our big packing day. Then Thursday we leave.
We will miss our family and friends here in Oakland and look forward to a wonderful world-wide adventure.
