I Hate Moving

Recommended Posts

As much as I love the final result of a move, I hate all the hullaballoo leading up to it: the packing, the constant presence of cardboard dust, the lifting, the aching muscles, the never being able to find anything because it's all packed somewhere...have I left anything out? confused.gif

 

The past two weeks have been so full of all of this, I just felt I needed to get it out somewhere. And since so many of you gals are in the process of moving yourselves, I thought what better place than right here?

 

Needless to say, things are finally starting to come together...there are still boxes EVERYWHERE, hubby's tools have taken up permanent residency in the living room (until the new couch comes in, then they are moving whether he likes it or not), and I still can't find my housecoat! hissyfit.gif

 

But being in the house is soooo much better than the apartment we were living in. I finally have closet space and a bathroom all to myself! And hubby gets to do the basement up with all his Senators gear (meaning it is no longer cluttering up the computer room!) cheesy.gif

Congratulations on your new place. Just like you said, even though moving is such a big hassle the outcome is much better. What I can understand is you never know how much "stuff" you have until you move and then you think. Do I really need this?

Hey - I'm right there with you! We moved ALL of our stuff from an apartment & a large storage unit this weekend. Luckily in a large house there are more places to hide the boxes you aren't ready to deal with yet wink.gif I totally feel your pain (my hands hurt so much it's hard to type!!)

 

I swear, on Friday night, our last night in the apt, I almost had a panic attack because it felt like we were living in a trash house - boxes every where, a total mess....ick, I can't even think about it.

I moved a month ago and I still can't find stuff! We donated so much stuff too and our garage is still full! Moving does suck, but once you get all done you have that "ahhhh...time to relax" feeling.

I am so excited for all that crap because of the reason behind it! I will gladly deal with it all and not complain :) We have REALLY outgrown our little cracker-box. I am so excited to buy a house and move so I have a solid excuse to donate/trash 50% of the junk we've accumulated!! YAY!

 

But sorry for you, Jennifer, and others in moving mode, just think how nice it will be when you're done and sitting on your couch in your new living room with a glass of wine! Ahhhhh :)

Oh I know! We have about three random boxes started for "give away" stuff! It's ridiculous how it all just accumulates.

Ha, I hear that. We had so many boxes, Timm had to make a path from the kitchen to the front door just so we wouldn't be trapped! I felt so claustrophobic I don't know how I survived!
