I hate moving. I took 2 vacation days so I can get this done. The reason for my move is to be closer to my son and work. I currently live 15 miles from my job. My new place is only 6 miles away from my job. 12 miles a day, instead of 30 miles. I am just about done packing. I start moving stuff tomorrow. Phone, internet, Dish will be on tomorrow. Everything is falling into place, which scares me. Now, I am just waiting for the other shoe to drop.

I've realized that you never fully comprehend how much shit you really have.....until you have to move it all yourself.

You should probably stop playing on the internet and help the poor guy.

every time i've moved i've had to do it myself... i think next time, i'm going to sell my house furnished and just buy new shit.

If you can afford it....hire a moving company. Just don't hire them to pack your shit.

I used to work for a moving company....and they really don't take "care" of your stuff when they pack it. They just want to hurry up and get done.

9 moves in 12 yrs in the Army. I feel your pain. Quit buying nice stuff early on because no matter how well packed sh!t happens. I will pay movers the next time I ever move and endure the scratches and broken items.
