Fuck packing. For real. When I get Oprah rich, I will just buy all new stuff if I ever have to move. I don't even care if I have a staff of people to pack it all for me, I want nothing to do with it ever again.
I don't even feel sorry for homeless people any more. One shopping cart full of stuff and no neighbors sounds pretty awesome right now. No telephone? No random piles of detritus to be sorted? Sign. Me. Up. If I don't end up Oprah rich (unthinkable), then moving is going to involve me shoving my sleeping bag and backpack into a stolen Target cart and rolling on down the road.
It sounds heavenly, a close second to just getting all new stuff.
Between wandering from room to room staring at things today, I finally got to the point where I was just tossing glass things into boxes, figuring they'll make it if it's meant to be.
So, we may not have any dishware by the time we get to the new house.
And I don't care. As long as we get there.
But oooohhhhh...think of the joy a month from now when this is all done, boxes are unpacked and trashed, and you're all settled in your ugly cute little house! We just had to pack up our entire home - first the upstairs, and now our downstairs - because we had to have the ceilings repaired from a leak over the winter. So we have the MAJOR BALL SUCK of packing damn near every single thing we own and moving it out - only to move it right the eff back into the same shitty house! At least you get the satisfaction of moving to four new walls! So...keep the result in mind, and just make it through the suck!
I know exactly what you mean. Every time I move, I get rid of tons of stuff - but yet it seems to be back at the next move. If it helps - and it probably won't - you have my sympathy.
I so know what you mean. Sometimes I have nightmares about finding extra rooms in my house that I didn't know were there and they are filled with junk that I don't even remember having. Moving is rough. Our 25 by 30 crawlspace flooded this summer and 75% of the stuff went to the curb and I was happy to see it go. We all have too much stuff...and don't even get me started on the papers that accumulate. Good luck to you with this move. I feel for you.
I TOTALLY understand that problem! I just did a major move last summer, and I am NEVER DOING IT AGAIN! I told my husband, you'd better love this house because we're here forever!!
Packing is torture. I'm so sorry you're doing it. Yuck.
I hate packing as much as you do, I promise. The last time we moved, I basically stole from the kids' college education fund and paid the movers to pack for us (the kids seem a bit dim anyway, so I'm not that worried about paying for college). My only suggestion is to pack drunk. It makes unpacking that much more fun :) Good luck with the move!!
I HATE moving. if we ever do it again, I'm definitely selling as is - as in all of this shit is included and you have to deal with it.
I really did LOL at this: I finally got to the point where I was just tossing glass things into boxes, figuring they'll make it if it's meant to be.
Good luck! Soon you'll have the joy of finding a new home for it all at the new place. ;)
Packing is the pits...hate it! Hope you get through it & still have some dishware left by the end of it, haha.
just found you...very funny...i hate packing/moving to!
Miss your blog! How's the move going?
exactly why I will never move until I can pay to have it done. I was sure my exhusband was trying to kill me when we moved here--now I think it was too hard for him to do so he just divorced me instead
Ugh, I understand!! My husband's company is moving us in Jan. and they'll give us money to do it ourselves, and we would get to pocket several K. Nope, we're in agreement. We've done it ourselves and we're hiring the freakin movers! Fuck Packing.
Hope the move went well! This is random but whatever happened to the Hedgehog and the weiner dog? I miss pics of them. :)
Did you survive the move, Ashley? Inquiring minds want to know!!
