Whats On The Schedule For Today?

Although Mr. Milk is still technically working, he will be leaving early from work today to come pick me up so we can get some more necessary chores done. He'll be borrowing the truck from work to help us out.


We need to load and deliver our couch to a friend of Mr. Milk's. We might also have a buyer for the kitchen table who will need it delivered. While it is a bit of a hassle to be doing the delivering, we are thankful that they got sold!

We have 3 boxes that we will need to ship by airfreight. That includes our invitations. While I am still a little hesitant about this, we have no choice, so I am letting it go and hoping for the best. As you might recall from my previous airline rant, passengers are now only allowed one piece of checked luggage for transatlantic flights. Luckily, we just found out that Mr. Milk's elite status transfers to our Lufthansa flight so he is actually allowed 3 pieces. This makes things so much easier as we only have to pay $50 for one extra piece of checked luggage, bringing the total to 5 suitcases. I was able to squeeze my dress into a carry-on bag, so that will work out too. Anyway, we need to take our 3 boxes to the freight company and get that shipped off. It takes about 5 days, so not bad at all.

Then we have 2 large boxes of household items which we will be donating to Gather and Give, an agency I found online which donates the items to low income families and those in need. We then head to our local food bank to donate some non-perishable food we have left over in our cupboards. 

A friend is coming over later in the evening to pick up our bed. Luckily we have an aerobed we can sleep on on Thursday and Friday nights. We'll then leave that with a friend, as well as the bed sheets and such, for him to donate. 

Anytime left in between will be spent cleaning and packing the rest of our stuff. Hopefully by tomorrow night, most things will be done, giving us some time to chill out on Friday and maybe even enjoy our last day in Vancouver. Our flight is at 8am (PST) Saturday morning, when the dreaded long flight back home begins. 

I will hopefully get a chance to post something tomorrow before I say farewell to you ladies from this part of the world. But rest assured I will back as soon as possible, even just for quick updates.

Thanks for following along on this non-wedding related journey! Keep your fingers crossed that all goes well in the next few days :)

The upside about the long flight is that you are traveling to your new home! No having to board again in a few weeks to come back. I'm impressed by ho organized the two of you are. And your invitations will be fine. I'm so happy you get to carry on your dress - I would hate to have to ship that!

So soon!!! I agree with PPG...after all this travel is over, you will get a chance to relax and refocus your energy at your new home and the wedding! I'm so excited for you guys and glad that you got those things sold (even if delivering is a PITA).

So nice of you to do the donations too!

Holy cow! Is it here already? I can't believe in just a couple days you'll be headed 'home.' So amazing. I can't imagine all the emotions you are dealing with right now. :) I hope that this is a smooth process and will be praying for safe travels for you. And of course, I'll be anxiously awaiting your return and posts in blog land so that I can keep up on where you're at. Man, I hope you are not down without internet for long...I'll miss you terribly!
