Wait a Minute.... Moving Kind of Stinks!!!

So while I am really very excited to get up to Canada and set up shop there, I am not enjoying the packing phase of things. My house is a disaster! Kara came and helped me pack up all the decorations last week and this week I am working on random things. Today was the boys' room. I took all the clothes out of their dresser and put them in plastic bins. I guess that could have waited for a little while but I really want to have everything done early. I really hate it when people ask for help moving but what they really mean is will you come over and pack up my house and then move it and then clean it up after? I guess service is service but that really gets to me. I guess maybe I'm just a jerk! Anyway, after the dresser and closet were done I moved on to the crib and bunk beds. I usually let Mike take care of this sort of thing but I decided to tackle it myself. Man, those things have a lot of little pieces to them. I think I pulled out about 50 screws from the bunk beds alone! Oh, and they're heavier than they look too! Anyway, so now my boys are living out of plastic bins and sleeping on mattresses on the floor. I was going to feel bad for them until they saw it and thought it was pretty cool. Not too sure why we bought them cool bunk beds in the first place if they were happy with mattresses on the floor. Oh wait, now I remember why..... it was because I wanted them. :) I think tomorrow I might tackle the kitchen and bathroom. On the other hand, since I worked so hard today maybe I'll take a break and go shopping. After the garage sale I realized I have a lot of extra space..... Just kidding Mike!

Good work, Karli. You rock.

Kara said...

Why is Mike the only one who comments? Hmm, sucker. I'll be by on Thursday to help out.

Karli said...

It's because he loves me and wants me to believe people actually read and care about what I say. Who's the sucker?

What if I don't want you guys to move? I will miss you all too much!

Matt said...

I am not even going to offer to help because that would just encourage you to move. : > I will bring you cookies and moral support and wise, Auntly advice.

I loved your apron comment. I have seen the place in the mall and I they are adorable! I was mad because I had the idea 3 years ago. When do you leave?

Anna said...

I hate packing. I think I hate unpacking worse. I told Justin we would move from Payson over my dead body...well, I'm still alive! Anyway, we're sorry you're going. Aren't you staying here until July? When is the final departure date?

KARLI!!! I found you! Yay! How are you? I ran into Mike Luke at the store the other day...he added me to his facebook...I added you to mine from his, and voila! Here we are!! Then I saw on your profile that you have a blog so, yes, I will be stalking you. ;) And now that we're finally in touch again I find out you are moving to CANADA!!!!! At least that's what I gather from the last few posts on your blog. (your haircut is HOT btw) We HAVE to get together before you move. When will that be, anyway? It sounds like my days are numbered if you're already living out of plastic bins! (I feel for you, that is the worst!) But at least now we can blog together and keep in touch through modern technology, right? Anyway, I miss you and wish you luck with your move and all your fun adventures with your cute boys. Your dreams are finally coming true to be moving back to your hometown! Hooray! I'm so happy for you! Call me anytime. I can help you pack or whatever you need help with. Love you! Keep in touch ;)

(Sorry for the NOVEL!)
