The Angst of Moving

Yesterday after church and a lunch that was probably way too fattening for me, we started the "big move." Did I tell you how much I hate moving? Well, yeah, I hate it. Loathe it, in fact. But this time, it really wasn't too bad.

My husband used to be a professional mover in Europe and let me tell you, he works fast. He and my stepson combined were a powerhouse of energy. I didn't have to carry anything out, but just pack boxes. I'd much rather do that, let me tell you! We still have a bit to do - I have a very nice China closet my Dad made that is full of dishes that I still need to pack up, plus my daughter's room. We'll get that taken care of this week.

I can now officially say that hubby and I are back together. A lot has changed over the past eight months and it's all for the good. We're really starting to recognize that marriage takes a lot of work - and no one has a perfect, normal marriage. That doesn't exist. There is no perfect husband and no perfect wife. Our counselor has really helped us see this.

Needless to say, I'm tired on this Monday morning and could have cheerfully slept until noon. But there's that pesky day job to deal with and a house full of boxes to unpack.

  1. Moving is the worst! I'm dreading my own relocation, as much as I'm looking forward to it.

    Glad to hear you and your husband have worked things out. Relationships are always difficult, even when they're worth it.

  2. Um, could we borrow your dh and step-son in about 9 months for the day, please? Thanks :-)

    As for marriage, yep, it takes work. Glad to hear you and your dh have worked through things and are back together. Happy endings are the best!!

  3. I'm glad you've made it through this rough spot. Congratulations for not just throwing in the towel :)

    Does this mean you are moving out of your flat too? Poor you. All that moving. And a job interview? Wow :)

  4. I can't stand moving so I feel your pain.

    I'm glad to hear you and your hubby are working it out. Marriage is hard work - anyone who says it's easy is lying.

    Have fun unpacking. Ugh.

  7. The only good thing about moving is the (mistaken) hope that it'll be the last move!

    Rest up, sounds like you deserve it :)

  9. Congratulations on the move and getting back with your hubby.

    You're right, there's no such thing as a perfect marriage. It's wonderful that both you and your hubby were able to work together to save your marriage. I'm very happy for you both.

    Sue :-)
