It gets worse...

...before it gets better.
 I HATE PACKING!!! Sorry to be negative, but it is true! Doesn't it always get worse before it gets better? We started off with a mostly tidy house (can you ever get all the toys picked up off the floor?), then we started packing and the more boxes we packed the more stuff seeped out of the woodwork! I didn't know we had that much stuff, and it is certainly getting on my nerves because our house is ANYTHING but tidy. 

Our  house is usually very neat, but here....
 is our house as of Monday around noonish:

Here is our house Tuesday around 8 pm:
(Getting better)


Oh how I hate packing, but looking at these two pictures made me feel a little bit better. That is just down stairs my friends! Upstairs is almost done! We just need to take down the crib and our bed, and put the clothes in the wardrobe boxes. I might dislike packing, but I LOVE whoever invented these... They are amazing!

I will keep you posted on the moving developments when I need a break from packing tape, cardboard cuts (the worst), and misc. things that I don't know what box to put them into (the ultimate worst!)

7 love notes:

Moving and packing does suck! We are looking at houses to buy, and I can't believe we might be doing it AGAIN so soon! I don't think anyone can keep the house clean while packing the last week- it's just too hard! At 2 kids in to the mix, and it might just be impossible!

I HATE moving too. We haven't moved since Breea was born, and I'm dreading packing up with everything we've accumulated for her. I can't image how much MORE there is for TWO little ones!

Good luck!

I have just barely started packing. I have done three boxes and I have a bazillion more to go. It looks like you are almost there! Good-luck finishing and also with the move.

Oh,how I HATE...no... DESPISE packing!!! I am so sorry! it is the worst! I always start out really organized with everything in the right boxes and towards the end I just chuck stuff in whatever box they fit into!!! Good luck!

Ah, Jen, poor thing. Packing isn't the funnest, but I LOVE change, and what a fun change you guys have ahead of you!! It always makes the packing exciting when I think about the new place we're going to live. Congrats to Tyson (and Ashleigh!) on graduating! Wow. That's huge. Dr T.
