Moving


Well, the process has begun. If I'm not talking to a relocation agent, it's a real estate agent or a moving agent or a mortgage agent... they're all agents. Some of them are VERY helpful... and some are not so much...

You know how when you tell people you're pregnant they tell you their horrible birthing stories? Well, when you tell people you're moving, they tell you all about the things they had lost, stolen, or broken! It's a little disturbing. I told Chet he would have to pull a U-Haul behind us full of everything we can move and the movers will be carrying only the heavy things we can't pick up ourselves! We'll just have to see how it goes, I guess. The lady from the moving company is coming to "inventory" our belongings tomorrow. That should be interesting... and probably a little convicting - I mean about how much unnecessary "stuff" I have... anyway, the house goes on the market on Monday. If you know anyone who might want one in our area, let them know! We have a fantastic real estate agent who will show it to them, gladly! This weekend will be spent painting, fixing cracks, cleaning out flowerbeds, etc. I can't imagine how I'll get everything done before then, but it will happen one way or another. Amazing how many things you just learn to live with - but you know no one else will want... like chips out of paint and weeds and such.

Hi Ashley, your family is adorable. Congratulations on your upcoming move. I think I am weird because I LOVE moving. The idea of a new house and new friends always excites me. In fact we have been in our current house 2 years and I am itchin to move....but not really going to. We live in San Antonio and Love the city.

To make you feel better...we had movers move us to Monroe & had a WONDERFUL experience. Not one thing was broken, lost, or stolen! Having someone else do all the work is the best thing EVER!

You know, Wichita's not too far from Oklahoma City! So if you're ever close, stop in to say HI!

Ash, I totally agree with Megan. We have moved twice and both times had movers...it is SO worth it, especially with kids. Also, if Chet's co. is paying for the move, let them pack. We did when we moved to Dallas and they pack it sooo much better than I ever could have. They take extra precautions to not break anything b/c they don't want to pay for it. Just be sure to take valuables and financial info with you and go with a big national moving co. and you'll be great! BTW, I feel your pain, right now we are in the same boat. Trying to get the house ready to show with 3 little "angels" is sooo much fun :) Love ya!
