Moving Sucks

Most of you know the old homestead is a three bedroom deal, 1 bath a living room, dining room and a kitchen.

Do you know how much stuff can accumulate in this much space since 1967?


Do you know how hard it is to move BY YOURSELF! With little to no help from any family members? ESPECIALLY THE ONES THAT LIVE IN THE AREA!

I've hauled over cooking supplies. I've hauled over some clothes (But I'm trying not to take stuff off the hangers since they are only moving 6 blocks down the road). I've hauled books.

Note the word, "I".

No one else.

The nephews have helped take stuff in but trust me it isn't much and the youngest nephew put together my bakers rack, but as far as helping me get more stuff than my Focus can haul. Well that's all been on me.

Pardon me while I scream.


At least when the furniture gets moved I'll have some help.

I was picturing you walking down the street with a chest of drawers strapped to your back.

Unbelievable. You would think after all you have done pretty much single-handedly caring for your parents....

When we bought our house, we did all the moving ourselves with our Aerostar van, a rented truck (for the washer, dryer, freezer, and piano), and two friends. Those friends have since divorced ... I wonder how much we had to do with it.
