Up The Stairs, Down The Stairs, Up The Stairs, Down The Stairs

So a friend of mine is moving to Fredericksburg, VA.  She doesn't have to have the house here cleared for a month but she has forward momentum now as everything falls into place for the move and she asked a few friends to help her pack and move a few things the past weekend.

A few things.  Uh-huh.  She is now pretty much moved.  Two very long days that reminded me that I plan to hire movers for my next move.  Or it's going to involve a can of gasoline and a match.

I'm really over stairs now, as well.  When I win that $400 million lottery my dream house will not involve stairs.

And don't ask me how much work I got done at my own place over the long weekend.

But at least I made it to the grocery store yesterday along with the other locusts.  We've moved into the upwards of a foot of white and fluffy range.  But since I'm a teleworker the government closure doesn't affect me.  Drat.  Moving my friend's house means my own house is still filthy.

  1. I feel your pain. When I retired from the AF, told the wife we were going to move 3 more times. Once to the area, once into our home, then once into a box. Forgot about the kids and college, then college home 2, then kid 2 to college and college homes 1-4, then back home, then to a job home, then kid 1 back to Texas....

  2. My knee hurts just thinking about how yours must feel. In 2002, we moved my family of four into a 3-story townhouse with a basement. Had two other families with lots of kids help us, and formed bucket brigades up the stairs.

    We're in a two-story place now with no basement, and will also hire movers if we ever move again.
