Moving is Stressful....Don't Let Anyone Tell You Otherwise
I moved this week and had plenty of time to research the movers, buy boxes and pack up the house, but was I ready when they pulled up bright and early at 8:00 am. Nope! I still had about 10 boxes to pack in the kitchen and I thought it would take the two guys most of the morning to load but they showed up with 3 guys and like busy bees were loading faster than I could get my last few boxes packed. Of course, I had to show them what was staying and I had to load the wardrobe boxes.
By 11:15 am they were ready to go and had left me some items to transport myself like a million pictures (really about 50) and 2 or 3 tall artificial plants and about 8 tall vases that I had neglected to pack. I carried my lamps wrapped in bubble wrap so I had to load my car with all the lamps. Fun!
I have to say that I have made 3-4 large moves in my life and moved around from base to base when I was young but when the moving van pulled away with all my possessions inside, it made me so emotional that I cried a little. You would think being a Realtor, I would be unemotional but no way. It made me feel vulnerably just like anyone else in this situation.
The thought of moving to my new house in the next hour was exhilarating and I loaded up my car and drove to the new house. Sadly leaving the old home full of wonderful memories but ready to experience the new memories and the glitches to come in the next few days. I will write a new post on that tomorrow.
I look forward to many happy years here in my new home. So if you are contemplating a move, be flexible and remember that all the planning in the world will not eliminate a few minor problems but it will all get done and you will be in your new home within a few hours.
Yes Moving is Stressful.....but well worth it.
