Me: So the point you are trying to make in this rant about discarding all your worldly possessions and becoming a shaolin monk in the Himalayas is that you packed the green marker?
Her: …………………………… yes, yes….that is what I am trying to say…….

    I feel your pain! Three funny moving stories:

    (A) When we bought our first house in NY, we were moving just two miles down the road. We literally moved items out of the kitchen cabinets, into the back seat of our cars (no boxes!) and then drove down the street and immediately put them away in the new house. It took several trips but saved the pain of boxing everything. It was so funny … we couldn’t stop laughing … such a red neck way to move!

    (B) During that same move, we emptied the fish tank to just enough water that the fish were still in the tank. We then put the tank in the back of the Wrangler (top down, of course). I followed in my car and as he pulled into the driveway, the Wrangler bounced enough that water literally splashed out. Fortunately, the fish stayed in the tank but I’m sure they were traumatized.

    (C) Moving here, our company paid movers for us. It was a dream!! But movers literally pack EVERYTHING. I unpacked one HUGE (but light) box after the move and found our bedroom trash can upside down — trash included — on a single pillow that had been on our bed. BOY! Was I glad that dirty tissue made the move. I lost sleep over where it was. Way to think through it guys!

    LOL! Have fun ….
