Thursday Thirteen

Our oldest daughter is moving into a new house on Friday, so we are up here to help them get moved in, mostly to take care of the grandbaby while they unpack.

  It just reminds me, though, why I don't really like to move.  I lived in the same house for almost 18 years when I was growing up, so moving never came as second nature to me.  I almost wish it had.  There are all kind of great things about moving into a new place, but the process.  What's your least favorite thing to do?

1.  Packing boxes

2. Arranging to turn off/on electricity, gas, water, trash pickup, phone, cable, wi-fi, etc.

3. Giving every one your change of address.

4. Deciding what to pack and what to throw away.

5.  Deciding where to put everything.

6.  Physically moving boxes and furniture.

7.  Getting to know new neighbors.  What if they don't like you or you don't like them?

8. Making repairs to the old and/or new place, if necessary.

9.  Sleeping in a new place is always weird at first.

10. Buying things your new place doesn't have.

11. Learning where the grocery, gas, and convenience stores are.

12. Navigating a new way to work.

13. The cost!!!!

  1. I definitely have a love/hate relationship with moving. Your daughter's new place sure looks nice. :)

  2. I haven't moved since 1987. I hate to think what is hiding in drawers and closets. We have clean-outs occasionally, but it is always easier to stuff something back than to decide if you really need it.

  3. Moving... the bane of my existance. We're a, now retired, military family, so moving was a part of life. I have it down to a science. I like going to new places... but I hate the process!


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
