To keep ourselves sane in the midst of the chaos, we've been entertaining ourselves in some pretty unusual ways. You try disconnecting all communication to the world for a few days and surround yourselves with cardboard and see how crazy you act! Around 2am on Saturday night after a very draining day of unpacking and a long night of Jason working, we were getting ready to head to bed, when my night-owl of a husband got an idea in his head. Let's turn Kim into a Mrs-Potato-Head and see what happens!
Thus, the following pictures that came as a result of his inspiration:
I know they're not the most flattering pictures, but come on now, its 2 in the morning! I'm sure you all can picture Jason in fits of laughter every time he put a new pair of shoes under my chin. It really started out very innocent. He was tucking me into bed to say goodnight, when he got this silly grin on his face and reached down to grab the first pair of shoes....and there it just continued till we both almost peed our pants.
The other little game we created for self-amusement was a "Where's Waldo" but with Banks. It seemed wherever we went to unpack or move something Banks had found a way there first and was able to squeeze her way into some pretty unusual places. We did not stage any of these pics, she did it all on her own.
Dining Room on top of the bookcase.
Where's Banks is this picture?
Or maybe in the bedroom in our temporary sweater shelf.
The Pantry off the kitchen.
Under the dining room table.
On the shelf of our new coffee cart.
Or maybe they won't find me if I go inside the coffee cart.
Ha! Not so fast Banks! We see you!
A cat after my own heart :-)
Is it bedtime yet? I'm in the middle waiting for you two.
Surrender with your paws up!
Finally - sleeping peacefully under the blankets of our bed with me until Jason found her.

So that was the first time I've ever received one of those emails! Thanks but I'll take an earthquake over a tornado ANY day! We had no idea any of this was really going on, we just thought we might get some rain. HA!! I get to the apartment and we finish boxing some things up and get the couch ready to move into the trailer. No sooner do we get it to the front door then the heavens opened up and the rains came in a torrential downpour! There was all this intense lightening and thunder - it was nuts! The thunder was so intense it shook our building a couple times! Between the sheets of rain coming and going, Jeff finally was able to help us load up the trailer so we could head over to the house to unload. I later came to find out that the Tornado sirens went off throughout downtown Nashville and in surrounding counties. Niiiiccee. We didn't even hear them! And my friend Brooke at work told me that they were evacuating stores and that people in the office went into the stairwell for protection.
