Oh man, moving. It's such a hassle, and you don't actually realise how much stuff you have until you have to pack it, do you? Good luck, you'll get it done!

Also, I like this one:

-put all the random crap in the same box, deal with it later

Basically my strategy for pretty much everything other than books and clothes when I moved, heh.

Good luck with the move! I'm so glad I have the rest of the month to work on packing and do my move.

I moved last year. Everyone has been trying to convince me to move, but I let my lease run out (it does at the end of the month) and I'm moving back in with my parents at least until their lease runs out next year.

Where do I send the new home card? and I hope this move marks an uptick for you. I figure we're both due one

LOL I can understand that!

Well... I'm moving back in with my parents... so yes and no? I mean yay less bills but boo one room vs a whole house and 3 people that I didn't have in my house (plus 3 cats and a dog... although my cat is gone :-( as of this past Monday so that's one less animal we'll have.)

Thanks. It was a blessing in a way. He had cancer and was old. And not eating. So he was ready. And I honestly think this last week was just... painful. So as much as it hurt...it was time.

Just moving forward.
