Bad timing

Instead of sitting at the computer, I should be getting ready for our movers. Because they are coming tomorrow. This move will be the first that we are able to get our stuff sooner than 5 weeks. Sometimes it has been as long as 8 or 10 weeks because of location and because we didn't have a place to live yet. (this time it will be about 2 weeks)

I'm tired. The kids and I are mostly packed. But I am packing more than clothes. I have to pack stuff to cook with, things to eat on, school backpacks, paperwork....and I can't think of anything else right now. But all of the stuff that we take with us has to be in our cars before the movers come so they don't pack the stuff we need.

The movers are packing and loading on different days. Which just might really suck. As well as we have to clear our rental by the end of the month. We've had some issues matching the paint in our house as well. Quadrant Homes, which built this house, used paint that was only made for these houses. So when you go back to the manufacturer, they can't recreate it exactly because they no longer have it. But all I have is a quart of paint. To touch up the entire house. We are trying to figure it all out. I really don't like Quadrant Homes.

I am not looking forward at all to this move. I don't want to drive in the winter. I don't want to take my kids out of school halfway through the year. And I've got about two months left with this pregnancy, and driving 1,000 miles, while pregnant, in the winter, sounds like a nightmare.

Tonight I am going to finish up our packing as best I can, and get to bed so we can get up early and get everything out to the cars.

And then once the movers are done, we still have to clean, and also the carpet cleaners are coming on Wednesday. The only good thing about getting on the road is that the house will be done.

I'm tired.
