We’re moving. Yeay! I’m just dying of excitement! I don’t know if I can sleep, what with the anticipation of packing endless boxes of seemingly useless junk, trying to convince myself I really DO need every single item that has accumulated over the past year and dealing with my confused, anxious dogs and grouchy children. Moving is great.  Because I do so love the feeling of dread at moving large pieces of furniture only to discover a treasure trove of misplaced junk or running out of boxes only to make a dozen late night trips to the local big box stores to steal boxes like some cardboard hoarding creature of darkness. Not to mention the pure exhilaration of identifying the mold covered blob of mystery under M&M’s bed. And when it’s all said and done, you are left in a hollow shell of what once was a happy home. But you aren’t done, oh no, there is still fun to be had. Because living is messy. No matter how thorough you may think you are there are nooks and crannies full of the debris of life. Bits of crayon, dried play doh, old food, random bits of fluff, dust bunnies and mysterious works of crayola art on walls that seemingly appeared out of nowhere. Oh yes, I love moving. Let the games begin!
