Nomad No More

Have I mentioned lately that I'm moving? No? Well, in case you didn't hear...I'm moving in T-minus 9 days. HOLYCRAPISTILLHAVETOPACK!

I also may have mentioned my absolute hatred for packing.But I do it out of need. You see, hubs and I like to torture ourselves and move almost every year of our lives since graduating college. True story. 

Here's a timeline:

June 2005: Moved into our first apartment together in NJ! A 960 square foot 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom with den. Fantastic.

July 2005: Moved into our second apartment. Why so soon you ask? Because our first apartment BURNED DOWN! Yes, it was the scene of a 5 alarm fire which began in the apartment below us (fertilizer caught on fire...I think I know what was going on down there. I think they were "farming greenery.") So, hubs and I ventured out in our ashen clothes and found a 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom cubicle. All of 600 square feet. Furniture you ask? Beach chairs, a couch and an air mattress. At least for the first month. Because our renter's insurance didn't kick in until Monday...the fire was on a Saturday. LIFE LESSON: Always get the renter's insurance BEFORE YOU MOVE IN!

July 2006: Moved into a lovely 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom 1100 square foot rental condo. Because we had to get out of our apartment cubicle or we might have killed each other.

October 2007: Moved into our first house! Woohoo! A quaint 3 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom 1920's renovated bungalow. Our pride and joy.

August 2009: Moved into our 3 bedroom, 1.5 bath townhouse in Maryland. After hubs got laid off in April 2009, he was offered a job in here, so we put the house on the market and moved our way to this crab loving state. 

April 2011: Next Friday I'll move into our 4 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom house (which you can see here) with 2 car garage (Ooooo!) All.by.myself. I mean, without hubs. I will have movers. And friends. But he gets to miss out on all the FUN. 

I'm not moving for at least 15 years. Period. Can you blame me??

Moving is one of my least favorite things-all time. Packing is the worst! I hope it goes smoothly for you :-)

Bless your heart~~I moved twice in 2 years! It's really though. Remember to stop and drink lots of good wine! ;)

I never thought I had that much...um..."stuff" until I had to pack last Summer. I hope your move is super easy. :-)
