In case you were wondering, hey, why hasn’t WMAG been updated this week — it’s because I’m moving this week. And if you haven’t moved for a while, perhaps you have blocked out the memories of how hard it is to do (kind of like moms do with childbirth).
I thought getting the house READY to sell was hard. (And it was.) But packing up every single belonging, vacating the premises, coordinating all the paperwork and finances for two closings, and moving all our belongings (which are waaaaay more than I thought possible to accumulate in such a small house) — all while caring for two young kids (one who is sick, even) and working? More than I thought I was capable of doing.
Tomorrow is the big move-in day, and I will somehow get through it. My goal is to have our family sleep in our own beds in our new house tomorrow night. (I think my parents would probably appreciate that too, as we have pretty much invaded their house for the last couple of days.) Wish me luck, and please don’t think I’ve abandoned WMAG. I’ll be back as soon as I can dig out my laptop, get the Internet humming and have a moment to update the blogosphere.

Hey, We are moving TODAY too. We actually are moving into a rental so we can house hunt longer, so we get to do this nonsense all over again.
Sleep well in your own beds in your new place! I bet it feels fabulous!
Oh I do not envy you! I NEVER want to move!
Did you end up finding a place in West Chester?
It will all be soo worth it when you are in your new house, and all the moving will be a distant memory. Two days of intense moving-in and you can take your time after that. My dad has some jammies for James. You can call him or write him to set up the pick up when you are all settled.
@LabMom – Hope you're getting settled, though only enough to get you through til you actually move "for real".
@Lisa – Yep, we're here in The Chester. Back to my roots — I grew up here and graduated from Lakota!
@Andrea – It's already worth it. I'll be in touch with Jim soon. Can't wait to see your place and have you over to ours!
I got an email form you, so I'm pretty sure you are in, but I can sympathize. Out house has lingered on the market so long we've cleared out lots of stuff (and we live with my parents now), but there is still lots of furniture in the house to make it look lived in. OMG there is still so much we will need to move.
Congrats on your major undertaking!
