Moving Sucks

Right idea. For sure.
It's 1 am. I have vowed to post something every day. It only took me 3 minutes to regret that vow. And I haven't stopped regretting it for 3 whole weeks.

I have not written anything for tomorrow, or the next day, or the next. I do have something scheduled for next Saturday and Sunday. Yeah for me. I am so ahead of myself.

So, I have about .8 seconds before I drop dead. I guess I can only hope to hit the publish button before my fingers give up.

Why does moving suck? Do I really need to tell you? I am pretty sure you all know all the reasons. I am sure the moving sucks mode is the same across all other barriers

Callouses and paper cuts from cardboard boxes.
Packing.
Cleaning. (cleaning normally is good, but packing cleaning is frustrating)
Trying to cook only to realize that you packed that thing away already.
The feeling of your teeth  ripping against each other while tearing off packing tape.
Labeling...box after box.
Sore back from lifting.
Being stuck on the phone all day, every day.
Saying goodbye, one place at a time, one person at a time, one memory at a time.

This time I decided to add a great little challenge. Try having only 11 days left to go before you head out across the nation without a new home secured.

It's a doozie.

And I am exhausted.

These are my hands typing very s l o              wwwwwwwwww llllllll yyyyyyyy.

E n t er

Publish.

There, There it is going to work out. I have been there and know the Lord is preparing special place for you here in his "zion".

As for the packing... wish I was close by I would zip over and help clean or bring you a meal.

Glad your coming this way!

Oh man. I don't love packing either. The Caroline-sitting offer stands.

I will certainly agree with that statement. I helped my son a year ago and my daughter just recently and it totally sucks.

Safe travels to you and your family.

Is there anyone who doesn't agree that moving is just simply awful?! Remember--one minute, one hour, one day at a time.I am excited for your new beginning. May you enjoy the journey.

Wow, it's drawing close fast! The good thing is, I can read all about your UNpacking on your blog, when you find yourself way over yonder. I only wish I were going back west.
