Hello from the House of Moving Boxes

Not surprisingly life is a little hectic between my full-time job and preparing for the move. Add on top of that a little girl who just turned 15 weeks old and you have pure craziness. I have to admit that I'm lucky that she is not yet mobile. These days she considers hanging out in her bumbo chair and watching me pack boxes quite entertaining so it is really a win-win situation.

While I'm excited about the new house, I really...I mean REALLY...hate moving. Not exactly a shocking statement I know. Moving seems to rest just below waterboarding on any list of the most excruciating forms of torture. I just can't feel comfortable in my house anymore, because even when I'm not packing it is impossible to relax when surrounded by towers of boxes. And how did we acquire so much crap to begin with? I would sort through it and chuck half of it, but really I only have enough time to load things into boxes. Hopefully I can do a big purge when unpacking. At least we got a storage shed yesterday, because it is rather difficult to paint walls and replace carpets in rooms filled with boxes.

Ugh. I promise a funner update later when life has resumed a little more normalcy whatever that means.

I hate moving too, I thought "Oh I'll just throw a bunch of stuff away as I move"
NO! I was so exhausted mentally from packing I was just throwing things in box's and thinking "K- I'll throw things away as I unpack".
Yeah- I'm still getting to that =S

Totally sympathizing with you. I hate moving, too. I had every intention of thinning out our collection of crap as we packed... never happened. Then I was going to thin it out as we unpacked. Well, we closed in June and I still have boxes in the loft and garage. Hopefully we'll get to it before Bean goes to college.

GOOD LUCK!

Good luck! Moving really does suck! I've decided that we aren't moving out of this house until we can afford to get someone to move us!

I feel your pain! I swear I will not move again until I've forgotten how awful it was moving into this house. And that may require shock treatments.

Every time we move, I swear I'm going to throw junk away instead of packing it, but it all gets packed anyway. Then I swear I'm going to throw it away when I unpack, and it all stays in the house. Blech!

Good luck with the boxes!

Moving does suck! When is the big move in day?

I hate moving too. I feel so bad for you...so much going on right now in your life! Good luck packing...get rid of whatever you can...donate it if you don't use it.
