until you try and put it into boxes!!! LOL im moving to a new house away from an 8 lane freeway (thanks Navy). they moved the moving dates up so i dont have much time to pack. yes we are packing ourselves, but movers are helping with the big stuff. DH cant help so im the only one who is getting everything together. ugh i kept telling myself it wont take long.... HA! it took 7 boxes just for our games and videos. i have a lot of older disney and other VHS. if it were DVDs it would have only taken 3! LOL. oh well i do have a friend coming over tomorrow and sunday (my birthday) to get everything packed and taken apart. im so excited for the first time in 2 months ill be able to sleep with out NOS fueled cars, motorcycles, and 18 wheelers racing by my window!!! happy birthday to me! soooo the best bday present ever!!

Lol! I know what you mean. Packing just is not fun! We are moving next week too (Thurs), but I will be having a baby at the lastest by Mon. So DH gets to do all the work! Yipee, but I am ok with that, because we have moved 3 times since being together and I did all the packing for those moves :)

Well, my DH never helped me to pack. He is awful with that stuff and will seriously throw anything in the box, not label it and expect me to put things away in a matter of days. When I saw how he was packing the first time. I told him nevermind. You just cook and I'll do this!

happy birthday! I'm a Leo too! My birthday is on the 16th!

Best of luck on your move and many blessings in your new place. I'd recommend tossing as much as you can rather than moving things you won't ever use.

 I'm in the same boat. 3 kids and a house to pack to move 1400 miles. We have to do it in one Uhaul and can't leave anything behind to come back for it like our last move. ( my parents stored it for us). My husband is already gone. When he comes home, its get the Uhaul, pack it and leave this hellhole.
