Moving!

We’re moving - again! In less than one year of marriage, this is our second move, and it will be our third address. It would be nice to think that we’ve won some sort of military-moving record. But, if we did, I suspect the only thing we won was the extra trip to the post office to change our address, besides getting the delivery full of boxes of our own stuff. But still, the move is a reason to celebrate. We’ve survived the last few months at our tiny, temporary place. Specifically, we’ve survived extreme heat, an awkward dinner invitation, and an almost unspeakable air freshener incident. No doubt, we’ve subsisted on pizza and macaroni. And, the only real casualty was a small plant. We’re also excited to move into our new house and get settled in. The prospect of unpacking all of our boxes, I’ll admit, is not quite as exciting. Eventually, after probably many trips to Goodwill, I know we’ll get everything in order. I’m not sure when we’ll get our internet hooked up, but I imagine we’ll probably be without it for a while. Rest assured, though, that I’ll probably have a new set of stories to share when we do. That is, as long as I don’t get lost in the boxes (possible, but not likely) or have to be admitted to the hospital for a bad case of internet withdrawal (slightly more likely). In the meantime, Happy Easter!

I know what you are going through! We will miss you and can't wait to hear about your move. Good luck with the unpacking!

I always want to give everything away and just start new wherever we go. It just seems so much easier than the packing and the unpacking, which never seems to end. Greg will never let me do this, though ;) I tell him that he's just too attached to our stuff.

Good luck with the move!

good luck moving! i say give away anything you haven't used, worn in 6 mths or didn't know you have. So much easier then finding a place for it!
