"To the Left, To the Left"...

"Everything you own, in the box to the left..."

What I've Been Up To...
I Hate Moving...
Send Help Now!!!

Yep, this is my current project...

10 More Days! Ten more fun filled days packing up all our junk belongings!

Today I've been working on the office. Thought it would take a few hours...I was wrong!

A few other notes:
Those U-Haul Boxes that are supposed to be good for 4 moves...NOT!
Packing tape doesn't stick very well to previously used boxes...
It always takes more boxes than you think...
It always takes more time than you think...
There is not enough Dr. Pepper in the world to soothe this stress!
I asked Emily if she thought we were half way done...she laughed hysterically!
Not. Even. Half. Way. Done.

What I'd rather be doing:
Relaxing in a beautiful hotel overlooking the ocean
Chillin' at a picturesque cabin in the mountains
Getting a pedicure
Taking a Nap
Getting a Massage
Blogging (wait, what? I am doing that...shhh!)
Having bamboo shoots shoved under my fingernails...I'm just sayin'!


  1. Oh, Valerie, I don't envy you this daunting task! You're right in everything you said! Takes more everything than you have, including stamina, patience and desire! Just think how nice it will be when it's done!

    Utah's beautiful this time of year and there are places to have a pedicure!

    Hang in there!

  2. Great! Now I've got that song in my head... "to the left, to the left, did you ever get to thinking, you're irreplaceable..."
    That's a nice song to be humming while packing boxes. :) Good luck with everything. I hope it's all over soon!

  3. Awww...Camille,
    "You just don't know 'bout me, you just don't know 'bout me!"

    At least it's better than the song I currently have stuck in my head...
    Though probably apropos, still highly annoying!
    (It's a song my boys have been playing lately, at least until I tell them..."Next" or "Something Else Please" or if all else fails I scream; "TURN THAT OFF!"

  4. Ack! And those are the wrong lyrics in my comment should be;
    "You must not know 'bout me"
    My apologies to Beyonce.

    Am I talking to myself? Why yes, I am...:)
