moving sucks

'nuff said?

less than a week...yay...(groan)

no smoking. have a writers' meeting I'm in charge of on Saturday. moving day is Saturday - lol. house is a total wreck. dogs are losing fur every time they meander the path to the back door. kids are grouchy as hell. all I'd need is for Mother Nature to visit, but there'd be a big star in the east since no ute since 1997. but then I'm looking for a miracle of some sort this week. that, of course, would be a disaster, no? don't need any more of those.

coffee pot is on the fritz, has to be cleaned with vinegar most likely, to remove residue, mineral build-up. ants invaded...and kids blame the houseplants. uh, no, but might be that the freakin' dishes need to be done instead of sitting in the sink, and trash needs to be bagged and hauled out. doh. (when's the last time YOU saw an ant carry an aloe vera to his hole rather than food?)

beer...bourbon, backrub, Calgon, something...please, carry me awaaaaaaaaay.

Geez, it's gotta get BETTER! Moving sucks, but not well and never where you need it the most.
If it makes you feel any better, I'm also not smoking. After a few days in the hospital with pneumonia, The Husband announced that he had thrown my cigarettes away. Unfortunately I had no comeback. Crap.
Listen, the move will happen, everything will get done, everything will be better. Well, except the smoking thing....

This, too, shall pass sweetie and when you're sitting in your nice new house, after the last box is put away, it will be worth it.

Or at least the pain will fade. Like childbirth, or so they say ;)

{{{{hugz}}}} Couldn't remember the exact move date for you. Have been good and refrained from calling. Then again, life has been one major time suck lately.

Hang in there!

Thanks for the giggle over the ants dying to eat your house plants over their dirty dishes.

It will get better.

On the flipside, excited for the three of you!

Did you get moved or are you buried under a pile of boxes? I keep saying the next time I move I'm gonna leave everything and buy new stuff. Of course that never seems to happen...
