This is what my house looks like right now. I absolutely hate moving. It is my least favorite activity, but yet you will always have to do it at some point in your life. The even worst part is knowing that I won't look at half of the stuff we own for like another year because we will be building our house. And I'm excited to build our house, but I already think I'm getting an ulcer. I'm stressed out trying to find the "perfect" floorplan and then finding it and then finding out what's wrong with it and that we can't afford it! Then we have to shrink it down so that we can afford it. Its stressful. I think its stressful because we want to live there for 10 plus years, hopefully until our last kid graduates from high school. So the house has to work well for babies, toddlers, kids, and teenagers. This thought scares me. I just want it to be perfect.
So the point of this post is that I hate packing. Don't get me wrong. I have packed a dozen times in college, but I only owned a $14 bookcase and clothes and this time we actally have furniture to move. We have never moved with furniture. We didn't have furniture until after we moved here. I know that a lot of you have just recently moved, and let me just say, "IT SUCKS!" I hope all of you are having much more fun that I am at this point in time. And thanks to my mother-in-law for watching Grant today so that I could actually get some packing done. It really helped, I just wish I were done!
