I hate moving. For the next 40 days, I will not sleep well, I will feel nauseated much of the time, and I will be upside down in Rubbermaid bins. I hate moving. We had 14,000 pounds of stuff (might I just mention holy crap -- 7 TONS of stuff) when we moved to the Netherlands. And the army will only pay for moving 17,000 or 17,500 pounds... Fortunately we have 2000 pounds in storage in the states and that's what we will have to pay for if we are overweight, rather than the stuff being shipped back from Europe. I have gone through some of the kids' clothing, and am in the middle of the toys. Books and DVD's are gonna be a problem, as well as all that pottery and oak antiques. I have, at latest count, 4 trunks, 2 antique beds, 2 benches made from antique beds, 2 hutches, the flemish cabinet, a sideboard, a table, and a marble-topped cabinet. Think that weighs 3000 pounds?

    Yeah, there's no way those few items could weigh more than 3000 pounds, because just think of all the air inside the cabinets and trunks. And a thousand DVD's couldn't weigh more than a few pounds. And Tess formerly loved going naked, so I figure you can jettison most of her clothes. You just have to think positive, and creatively......because being delusional is definitely a plus in this situation.

You like me! You really really like me!

Or maybe you just find me horribly annoying and are about to let me know. Go ahead, I can deal.

So, whatever, you know, leave a message. Thanks!!!
