Moving Causes Insanity

In a recent survey, 100% of people who move to a new house stated that they suffered recurring bouts of insanity while packing and moving.

Okay. I made that up. *VBG* Still, I believe there is a lot of truth in my chosen title for today: moving causes insanity.

We're down to the last 2 weeks of this first phase of moving -- or is this the 2nd? It's hard to tell since we already moved our clutter to our weekend home and a rented storage facility. I guess that was phase 1 so that makes what I'm doing this week -- moving my office files, computer, etc. to the weekend home phase 2.

Phase 3 is when the moving van comes next week to pick up the furniture and other assorted boxed stuff -- about 50 boxes to be precise. All that goes to storage. Then phase 4 comes in November when we take possession of the townhome we bought and everything from storage gets delivered. I won't even number the phases of moving things from the weekend home back to the city home.

All those phases and prep work that went into them? That's insanity.

Arnold Bennett said: "Any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts."

We wanted this change. In the end, it will make life easier, but, as Mr. Bennett observed, it's definitely accompanied by a plethora of discomforts.

Takeaway Truth

Yep. Moving causes insanity. And sore muscles.
