I admit to having moved rather chaotically. We haven't changed our address with basically any of our companies, we still need to finish cleaning the other place (going on a cleaning strike for the last two weeks comes back to bite me!) and I use the word "packing" rather lightly.
Throwing random things is boxes is more like what happened. I do not recommend this moving style at all.
Things that are missing:
1. All of my pajamas. I actually know where they are, but it's in a Rubbermaid bin in the garage underneath about 4 others. Not worth it.
2. My sanity. Pretty sure that got packed along with the next item.
3. Our memory card reader for the camera. So, despite having taken pictures, I can do nothing with them. If I don't find it tomorrow, I'm buying another one. My sanity, however, might be gone forever.
So, in an attempt to entertain you, I will share some pictures I've never shared.
These were taken in the beginning of March. Those of you in cold weathered areas should get your hankies out.
It got hot. So we did what we do in the Summer. We blast the sprinklers and cool down!
Yes, this gives me heart palpitations. She's up pretty high.
Because sometimes finding your bathing suit just takes too darn long.
A good time had by all! They played out there for a good half hour and my lawn got well-watered (well, not MY lawn...) and boy did it need it.
And not to be left out... Lucas joined right in, though I get the feeling he just wanted a drink.
SO you post on your blog but don't answer your phone?! Is that something that got lost with your pj's and you just can't be bothered?! HUMPH. Still those are cute pictures. Naked Miles pics are always worth a laugh:)
so jealous! We have had a few 70 degree days and my son asks every time if we can get out the sprinkler:) of course it snows the next day. good ole missouri! The one in the tree made my heart flutter. Hope you find your missing stuff.
Don't you think that 2nd pic is more suited for Sheri's blog on account of the pants optional?
we moved the same way you did. aak! disaster. it took me FOR.EVER. to get everything sorted through and put away.
we SO want to come visit you, and we hear many texans think florida is just a little drive away...so more than likely we'll be convinced and will come to visit some time!
good luck finding your sanity. bwa-ha-ha-ha!!!!
Yea moved that way once, all those boxes never got gone thru and are still in my basement and garage, soon to just be thrown out when I find the time. Just think of it this way, first your weren't pregnant this move second you hopefully won't be moving again for a very long time! Sanity goes further away the older your kids get!
Moving in whatever form just sucks. I can probably only be talked into doing it one more time...maybe.
Good luck finding everything.
can't wait to see pics of the new place with all the painting you've been tlaking about. I am debating whether to do the crazy pack= dump things in boxes or take the time I don't have and pack with an organized tone. Time or sanity? that is the question :)
I've got a spare memory card reader...around here... *somewhere*. Remind me to look for it when you come on Friday night!
We moved 10 doors down, and 4 years later, I still haven't found the box of PJs... Love your blog -- your pictures are amazing!
