I hate moving. I hate the disruption of my routine. I hate that I can't find ANYTHING. I hate living in one place while my stuff is in the other. I hate it. AND, I hate moving with children. I have not yet recovered from our move last August. Can you blame me? It has only been NINE months and we are moving again. Two adults (one being a history teacher with her own personal library), FOUR kids (two age 5 or younger, which means TONS of toys) and two BIG dogs. On the bright side, there were SO many issues with this house, I protested unpacking and so there is a 2 1/2 car
Now, I am SO EXCITED to live in the new house. The boys will each have their own rooms. The yard is already fenced in. I have paint colors already picked out! BEST part, we are right next to another fire family and we hit it off BEAUTIFULLY. I can't wait to spend summer with them. Our kids get along great. I am excited.
Can I just skip the rest of May? Skip the packing and the moving and the "Honey, have you seen the________________________?" that comes with this. Can I skip the senioritis that is SO in full swing and my juniors thinking they are already top dog? Can I skip finals and grades? PLEASE???
FINE! I'll be a grown-up and just do what needs to be done, just not with a smile!
So, tomorrow, here is the list of things to pack...
- Tupperware, that is not absolutely necessary
- Girls' toys and stuffed animals - tower o' toys,princess dresses, books that are not still packed from last move, 2 babies per girl and pillow pets will be left for sanity's sake
- Boys' toys
|Hopefully, this will be the case!|
So, I am indeed looking forward to the next chapter, just not the dirty work to get there. I think we might even splurge and get a mover for the furniture and appliances. That will make life easier for my hubby, seeing as I still have school until the end of the month. It takes some of the burden off of his shoulders.
And, once we are done, I can enjoy the summer rather than having to get back to school with boxes all over my house!
