I'm turning French.... I Surrender!
I give up! I surrender! After filling my 24 foot rented moving truck 6 times, moving over 12,000 pounds of 'crap', and I'm still only 80% complete, I give up. I can't take it anymore.
There are not enough motrin pills or Asian massage 'specialists' in the world to handle the aches and pains I've got. I hereby throw in the towel.
Viva la U-Haul

You have my deepest sympathies - seriously! I'm sorry, though, you can't quit yet. It has to be one hundred percent! When moving day comes, living out of the trunk of my car sounds much better than it did when it was happening!
Should we all donate Ibuprofen?
Dude-you've got too much crap! Before I moved this last time I unloaded lots of stuff. Gave it away, brought it to Goodwill and put it out on my street marked "Free". I was so glad cause after we loaded everything on the truck I couldn't imagine hauling all the stuff I got rid of. I really do empathize with you though. Moving is pure self inflicted misery.2:25 PM
Moving sucks. Period. Sooner it's done. the sooner you can stop worrying about it. The end is in sight man.
I hear ya. We moved here pretty much exactly a year ago (actually just got our return from the power bill deposit...) and moving blows. Especially when you're doing it yourself.
It's why we try not to have too much stuff... The hardest part was getting our re-enacting stuff from storage. It was like... "Hmmm. We've got four footlockers for three different time periods. Eh. Leave them. Too much bother packing them." Fortunately our storage was conveniently located right next to a DAV thrift store.
Trust me, I so want to have a huge bonfire with 2/3 of our belongings being tossed in by the handful, but something like that takes consensus in a household.
Of course consensus can be defined as my significant other agreeing with me on my 'burn it all' plan, but sadly my negotiation skills have failed.
Hopefully you continued your move off Toxic Waste Dump Hill and into your home. I was quite glad to get out a month ago, but I PCS'ed so I got moving help. Good Luck and enjoy the new digs5:23 PM
Yes, I'm finally off the landfill/alien tomb here in Dayton.
My kids have stopped glowing finally.
I hope you PCS'd to a good location.
LMAO!!! Damn I miss coming here.10:42 AM
