Let the packing begin

I hate packing. . . Lets be honest if you enjoy packing there has to be something wrong with you, but that’s just my opinion. I should be a pro by now in the 7 years I’ve been married we have moved 14 times. Gasp I know I do when I think about it. The first few years were not so bad when we had no children, but that lasted about a min. Now here we are move 15 which will eventually lead to move 16 which cross your fingers cross your heart say your prays that that will be our last and final move till the day I die. Which I hope I live a very long time.

    Kali, I thought I had moved around a lot (14 moves in 24 years), averaging a move every year or two! You’re averaging a move every 6 months! It normally took me about 6 months just to get all my stuff placed in my new home where I wanted it, along with new window coverings that I needed when the ones from the previous house didn’t fit the new ones. I now have quite a collection of fabric curtains that I keep thinking I’ll somehow re-purpose one-day. Quite the challenge for you, and I wish you success and happiness along the way! I have finally settled in my late-40s with the intent to stay put and not pack–or unpack–another moving box.

    Oh my goodness, how stressful these frequent moves must be for you and your family! Good luck with your packing, sending prayers your way for a smooth move. 🙂

    Aw, that’s no fun at all! We moved 5 times our first 2.5 years of marriage and have been settled now for 2.5 years. All that is to change soon though; our house is For Sale and the next move will be number 6 and we just celebrated our 5th anniversary last week! ;-/

    With my husbands old job we moved at least every 6 months. I think we had to move after two months once. Greatfull now to have a job where he gets to stay put!! Thanks ladies for all the encouragement in my ever daunting task!!

    Hi, I just saw this post. I am amazed at the number of times people move! No way around it, I hate moving! I hope you are settling in nicely in your new home. Can I ask if these moves are to homes in close proximity to each other?
