It's been about eight years since we last moved. I forgot what an excruciatingly hard process it is. We're downsizing, so we started with getting rid of anything that we didn't believe was necessary (we still have more to go.) Luckily, our new house closed before our old house closes, so we had over a month to make the move - but the focus has been on the last week. We're grateful to family and friends for helping us move boxes...lots of boxes...to the new house. The moving guys took the back abuse and moved the furniture - their chiropractors will be taking an extra vacation this year probably.
But now, we're in...and we're living in a very happy disarray with two very distressed cats. Looking forward to being downsized!
