What happened the last 2 weeks?

The last couple weeks have been a blur of activity.  Upon returning from our pre-trip on May 30th, we spent Memorial Day getting organized, picked up Dan's mom from the airport, dropped Dan off at the airport (for a week in London for work), and then I went to work in Flint Tue-Thu.  Miki arrived on Thursday morning the 3rd.  Thursday evening I flew to Boston for our 10 year Wellesley reunion, stayed with Lisa two nights, and Anindita & Erin one (thank you ladies!), and had a blast on campus catching up with great friends, and learning about all the changes on campus and  amazing accomplishments of my fellow alums.  Even connected with the Center for Work and Service, and am hoping to help them expand their internship opportunities in Israel!  On Sunday 6th, I met up with Dan (he flew in on Friday after returning from London) and Craig & Sara hosted a really nice BBQ at their house where we saw all our "old" Boston friends.  Thanks guys!  Had our last true New England steak tips...Sara, you are quite the chef! 

Sunday night the 6th we flew back to Detroit, worked a full week, and spent every evening getting organized.  This move was much more difficult than the previous ones, as we had to determine which items we thought should be sold, donated, stay in storage, go via container, via air, or via suitcase!  What a process.  Also had to sort out storage of Miki's furniture, and a few of Maca's boxes.  In the end it all fit in the storage room, but it was quite a bit of work to get organized.  And of course, as soon as the house heard we were moving, little things started to break everywhere.  Luckily they were easy fixes, just time consuming.  On Sunday June 13th we held a "Last Ham" BBQ to say goodbye to local friends - or should I say, the Velez's, Nicholson's and Leoni's threw us a great party. 

The movers arrived on my last day of work, Tuesday 15th.  On Thursday 17th they brought the bright orange 40ft container and filled it about 3/4ths full.  We spent Wed and Thu nights in hotels, then I flew out to WA Friday evening, and Dan flew to Israel Saturday morning.
