Ugh. I hate moving. I mean ultimately I like the outcome but this whole packing, carrying, unpacking thing? It's for the birds.
We had an AWESOME turn out for help yesterday - THANK GOD. I think our whole house was denuded of the "big" stuff within an hour which rocked....but then the small stuff, the boxes, the bags of crap, the stuff that's not packed because WTF do you do with it anyway? And the stuff you were going to get later and then some AWESOME PEOPLE (hi Anna!) packed it for you (ie: pantry!!)...but seriously...I'm so over moving right now. I've been working for most the day on trying to get everything (hahahahaha) to fit into the new kitchen. It's not going to happen. We had a ginormous pantry at the old house that fit extra George Foreman grills, cake decorating supplies, thermoses, blenders, waffle iron(s) (including mine, which is the shape of Mickey Mouse!), plus the normal sundry of foods, lunch bags (reusable, duh), woks, cat food, etc. And now? Well, we still have lots of cabinets, just not THAT kind of ridiculous in-kitchen storage. Ay yi yi. Do we really need 2 waffle irons, mircowaves, geo foreman grills, crock pots, etc? Yeah, I didn't think so. Do we need to work on our EXCESSIVENESS? Our - hey! we've been married for 2 years now let's actually finish up with the 'combining' of households, ya know? *sigh* But I digress....
We're in box and furniture mish-mash hell right now. We DO however have a brand-spanking new range which is hooked up and currently reheating last night's feast of Sammy's (family size - sausage). It's gorgeous and awesome and I love it. I can't wait to bake. We DON'T have a couch that's sitable yet....or the tv in the tv spot - and I don't even have a CLUE where the computer/router are and the cable guy's coming tomorrow. Hmmmm..... (god bless unprotected wireless is all I'm saying).
Anyhoo - this post is a whole host of rambles. Sorry. That's how my brain is today. I want nothing more than to relax, but I don't see that happening any time soon.
Did I mention moving sucks??!
PS - I suck as a mother, but that's a different post entirely.
