Really, There are not very many positive things I can say about this inevitable circumstance in life. The reasons can be wonderfully awesome, but the process is anything but.
We are in the process of this very event. AGAIN.
I'm trying hard not to complain. Trying is the key word here!
Bruce told me yesterday that since he got out of the Navy in 1992, he's moved 15 times.
I did my own calculations, and since graduating high school in 1993, I have moved 16 times.
Not bad, really. When I think of my friend Jacqueline and her family having moved at least that many times in the span of about a year, I should just shut up and be grateful!
There is one significant benefit to moving though.
DOWNSIZING. right, Jacqueline?!
Ahhh...it feels so good to get rid of all those "things" that are in closets and drawers, under beds and in basements that really don't have much relevance anymore.
The catch? Having a 5 year old that prioritzes EVERY ITEM SHE OWNS, and knows who gave her every item since she was two years old.
I guess there might possibly be a few things that get "lost" in the move.
So, HOW MANY TIMES SINCE BEING OUT ON YOUR OWN, HAVE YOU MOVED? DO TELL!
