It sucks! Even when you have actual movers who pack you, it sucks.
You know I'm a teacher because I can heartlessly throw away anything...but office supplies. Seriosuly how many plastic bins and sharpies does one guy need? The answer is LOTS. So much so that even the movers commented. Lol! Back off my office supplies movers. When the zombie appocolyse happens I will be the one making the beautiful signs that might just save your life!!
Concurrently, Derrick can throw away NOTHING There were at least 2 nights I stayed up till 1 a.m playing the roll of thief in the night throwing away everything, except office supplies, while Derrick slept. He worries so much about being wasteful and really hated the environmental impact of moving. He hated how much plastic we threw away and how much paper the movers used. I totally accepted and admired that and became a total Craigslist entreprenaeur trying to sell anything and everything! When someone swung by to take the big red porch chair, Derrick said "someone paid money for that?" I was like "Damn right they did. I wanted 8 but they gave me 5. Those cheap bastards".
We we had a few nights of "house camping" which the boys loved. They kept moving their air beds from empty room to empty room. Kids are so cool.
Moving still sucks but this one went pretty smoothly
