Oh My Aching Back! Do My Customers Really Do This?

Long, long day of work and packing today. Missy MacGregor, the Scottish Terrier in my life, is ready to move, but I'm not [yet]. Oh, mentally I am, but physically I'm a long way from moving.Missy says  Call Vickie Nagy, Danville CA Realtor and Start Packing

It really hasn't been that long since I've moved, only about 15 months. But truly, I had forgotten how much work it really is.

I think when we're all moved, and on the other end in our new home I'll forget [once again] about how much work it was to move.

But I'm not there yet. I'm really empathizing with my current, past, and even future customers. Oh, my aching back!

We discussed paying for packers but I breezily opted to splurge on the clean-out and move-in cleaning instead.

In retrospect I'm not sure that was the right decision. One day of cleaning on either end should be enough. It looks like this packing stuff is going to go on for days!

We're just moving across town, from the southwest side of Danville CA to east Danville CA, but it's still got to be carefully packed in boxes.

Can't really complain. This really is a dream come true. I'm moving to my farm area in East Danville, yippee!

I think I'll go to the massage chair and visualize the fun we'll have with all our friends and neighbors at the housewarming party. Ciao!

Good luck with your move Vickie.  We just did it 3 months ago.  It's always a lot of work and I always end up losing things somehow during the move.  I hope you enjoy your new home.

Vickie... moving is one of the top three most stressful situations a person endures.  It totally creates havoc with routines, knowing where things are located within the home, and, even what route you drive to work! Should you move again, I strongly encourage you to consider the assistance of a moving organizer to help you though this tough emotional maze :)

Yes, moving stinks, and it always ends up being worse and longer than you expect.  that massage sounds really good, so keep thinking with the end in mind.

Hello all, a little different approach today. I packed until 10 am then worked the remainder of the day. I'll pack one more box tonight. I've got a few days. Breaking it up may save my health and my sanity.
