Yay, escrow closed! The move is on Tuesday. I can't wait to see my dogs scampering around their own yard.

But first I have to pack.

Why do I hate it so much? I'm compulsively organized, so you'd think I would relish putting my world in square neatly labeled boxes. But I HATE it. HATE HATE HATE. It is endless and boring and why oh why did I collect all of this stupid hockey memorabilia? Or these stupid stupid books? Why do I have SO MANY shoes? And electrical cables and plugs and gimcracks I don't even know what they are for? Christmas decorations, Halloween decorations, EASTER DECORATIONS????? What was I thinking? A massive collection of china, why do I collect china? Every surface covered with boxes, stickers and endless endless bubble wrap and tape. ARGH!!! And at the back of the last china cabinet...

... Yay, I found the alcohol.

I can pack tomorrow.

Any hints on how to make it bearable would be appreciated.


  1. Congrats!!!

    No suggestions, other than pushing through until it's done, because if it isn't done when you need to move, it sucks a lot more...

  2. I agree. The suckiness will translate to dollars because the movers will have to take longer. Usually I'm motivated by dollars, since I have so few...

    But even that isn't helping.

  3. unless you can coerce some friends into helping make the time go's sometimes fun to pack and reminisce....
