Things have been pretty quiet on here (on the blog--certainly not in my house!) this week as we get ready to (once again) pack up all our belongings and move into a new home. The difference is...we will be STAYING FOR A LONG TIME. Mark my words. Read my lips. And, of course, reference this post when I call to tell you Keith has been transferred again. Perish the thought!
Moving has to be one of the most stressful events in your life. To think about packing all of our things up, loading it into a vehicle, driving it 5 short minutes from here and unloading it and setting it all back up. Ugh.
BUT-- the bright side (gotta look for that, don't we?) is that it is a chance to organize, clean out and start afresh in a new place, right? Right. Right-o. I will keep telling myself that. Maybe that will help me not have a breakdown this weekend while a 9-month old walks around pulling up on fragile boxes and yanking the leaves off of plants and a 6-year old whines because, well because he can. All this and a conference coming up in 3+ weeks. Oh my good gracious.
Have I mentioned I want a boring life? REALLY. I do. It just never seems to work out that way.
