Moving's A You Know What

Does anyone else HATE moving?

Don't get me wrong, I love our new house, but it doesn't quite feel like "home" yet. Hopefully the more stuff I get put away the more cozy it will become.

At 2:00am, after we unloaded the second U-HAUL truck, I was exhuasted and over it all. I started thinking about why this move was so dang bad. I realized this was the first time I had ever moved myself. I have always had movers move my stuff so no wonder I was freakin tired.

When J and I moved into our last house I was 9 months pregnant, PRAISE THE LORD, which automatically meant I couldn't lift or move anything. As for all the other moves throughout college and early adulthood my parents didn't want to have to shelp all my stuff from one place to another to they hired movers for me.

J kept remidning me we were saving over a thousand dollars by doing it ourselves, but during my breakdown (where I may or may not have cried) carrying our CALIFORNIA KING MATTRESS through the house at 1:30am I would have paid any amount just to have someone else do it.

So what did I learn?
1. As it turns out, I am capable of moving, I just don't like it. At all.
2. Movers deserve every penny they make. And then some.
3. Always ask people for help. Even if you don't want to inconvience them. Booze and pizza is always a good form of payment.
4. If we decide to move again, I am hiring movers. Or getting knocked up.

  1. You should have asked us! We are always soliciting people to help us when we move. I feel you're pain though, moving is never fun no matter how much help you have. I cannot wait to see the new place!
