Ellen, thoughts and prayers are with you and your tutoring families and everyone else affected by those terrible fires.
Stargazer, good luck on the move. When we moved 700 miles last year, I thought it would kill me. That was the longest move I've ever made and I was forced to part with a lot of crap (which I am glad of now, but at the time it was very traumatic parting with my crap). Yeah, its not easy to move far away. I used to just take my hanging clothes off the closet rod and throw them in the backseat still on hangers and rehang them across town in the new house. Couldn't do that this time.
So you are in my thoughts and prayers as well because moving just plain sucks whether its across town or across the country.
