All that blogging in November and apparently I’ve run out of topics. It seems like I should have lots to write about because I’ve been insanely busy, but then I sit down and my mind is blank. Want to hear about packing? I’ve been doing a lot of that lately!
As you know, we’ve moved back in with my parents, so pretty much everything that’s coming over here is over here. And that means everything else needs to get packed up and go into storage.
A little side story here- when we moved back here from Texas we sort of guessed at what we would need, took that to my parents’ house and put the rest in storage. But we didn’t know everything that we’d need and we didn’t know how long we were going to live with my parents, so periodically we had to get into the storage unit and find stuff. That? Was a BIG FAT PAIN. And a big part of why it was a giant pain is that Brian has issues with the way he packs and labels stuff. Brian is awesome at many, MANY things. Labeling the contents of boxes? Not one of them. For instance, when we did move into our house I finally found a DVD series that I’d been looking for. In a box marked “Nativities.” So at some point, probably during one of the trips to the storage unit when I couldn’t find what I was looking for, I told Brian that the next time we moved I would do ALL the packing. If only so I would know where stuff was when I unpacked.
Now here we are. Moving again. Which means packing. And I’m doing it. Don’t get me wrong, I’d still prefer to pack it all myself and know where everything is, but MAN is it tiring to pack boxes when you’re pregnant. Fortunately we have some time still before everything has to be out of the house. And one of the upsides of Brian being laid off is that he can stay home with the kids while I go pack. I do not have any idea how I’d get anything done if I had to pack while they were there. Anyway, packing is really taking away from my free time, but the sooner I get it done the better. So wish me luck, I’ll be doing more of it this week.
