Moving is like childbirth.

As soon as it’s over you forget the pain.

1. Approaching moving day, there is dread but you try to rationalize it. You know it will be bad. It will be painful, you know this, but you think, Look at all the people who’ve survived moving so far. They moved and they’re still in one piece, walking around as if nothing happened. It will be fine.

2. In the middle of it, you realize that this really is the most utterly difficult thing you’ve ever done. How did you ever think this “Wouldn’t be so bad?” And you can’t remember ever feeling so completely exhausted.

3. Three days later, you’re still a little sore. There are a few boxes to unpack, but isn’t the house just soooo cute? Moving wasn’t that bad. Was it?

  1. Hope you are getting settled in! Moving is no fun although lately I’ve had the itch… šŸ™‚ Why is that?

    Glad to see you back to blogging!

    I get that feeling every year or so…

    It’s called “an issue”.

    It’s perfectly normal though. šŸ™‚

    Sounds like you should have requested the epidural!

    Isn’t it good to be on this side of the move now though? Unpacking and getting settled in is so much funner.

  4. Hey, nice to find you over here. nice to know where,who, what moved your blog! šŸ™‚ I like your creativity in writing and sharing stories. Hope you guys are doing well and settling in ok.

    Hey, never found you online like this. Great way of communicating. I like your stories and the way you put them. Keep a stiff upper lip (Mr. French will appreciate this term as it’s very British) during all your upheaval, even if you do have purple countertops (yuck!).

    Good to get a glimpse of your life.

    PS Just realised I don’t know you as a driver!
