We're Moving on Up... To the East Side


Anyone recognize the theme song to "The Jeffersons"?

Seemed appropriate for this post, because we are in fact moving and we are moving to the east side of town.

In this small town, that translates into a move 5 blocks away. Ha!

So that's my excuse for not posting on my blog, not visiting your blog and not responding very well to comments left here.

I am packing boxes.

And any of you who have a lot of stuff know what a huge task that is (and maybe shudder to think of ever having to move!)

The shelves are slowly emptying, but not quick enough.

We just decided last weekend

that we are moving Easter weekend, which is insanely close now; but now to compound the stress, I have to work at the post office all this coming week since the post mistress has a family emergency and doesn't know how long it will keep her out of town.

My husband, the over the road truck driver, is wondering who will be packing the house with both of us working. I told him that I only work from 7:45am- 4:45am daily, so that leaves me with my 1 hour lunch, plus the other 15 hours each day I have "free".

I don't see a problem.

Well, I don't see a problem either because you know those kids can take care of themselves and probably even can make you some meals! :) Are you nuts? LOL I assume you're excited to move or this craziness would not be happening! I'll say a prayer for you!

It doesn't matter if you move 1 mile or a thousand miles...it still takes a lot of boxes! Best wishes and happy redecorating!

hope you work well under pressure! years ago,we moved from a 3 bedroom home to a 2 bedroom townhouse...we packed everything the day before..my dad was such a great packer that when we started unpacking at our new place,we discovered that he had packed a brick!!!!!!...we laugh about it to this day!! that man was a "packen' fool"..bless his heart! Just toss it all in a box if it's not breakable. My son packed his clothes in garbage bags when he moved! yep..we are a family who just lives on the edge!! good luck!!
and,you know..it will all come together and turn out just fine!!

moving 5 blocks or 5,000 miles comes to be the same amount of work I'm thinking!

too bad you can't wave your magic wand...where IS that wand when we need it anyway!!!

wishing I could come over and put tape on the boxes...I'd help label them too...I could make tea and well geezzz

fingers crossed for you that things go smoothly!
