Sorry I missed my post last week--between the stress of the new job, writing, and an upcoming move, I think I took on too much and ended up getting sick. I just haven't been sleeping, because no matter how tired I am, the second my head hits the pillow all I can think about is how much I need to pack...and how much I should probably throw away.

The move is really going to be a good thing, even though I hate moving and after the last time (9 years ago) I swore I'd never do it again. ;) It's a better school system for the kids, a much better and safer neighborhood, and it's only 10 minutes down the street so they can still see their friends as much as they want. The only problem is the packing. It's amazing how much stuff a family can obtain in a decade. We're looking at being out of this place and into the new one around the middle of September, and already I've been going through closets (and under the kids' beds) throwing away so much. We have 3 bags of clothing to donate, and I'm anticipating at least half a dozen more.

I really doubt I'll be getting much writing done in the next few weeks. ;) I have a couple small stories under contract or requested that I need to get finished this week, but after that, I think I'll take a break. The kids go back to school next week, so that will give me time to start going through things and packing up the kitchen and living room. Growing up, my family moved every 4 years or less, so I should be used to it. But I'm finding it's different as an adult, especially the only adult in the house.

Anyone have tips on making moving go smoothly?

If you can afford it, hire movers. Other than that, you're already doing the main thing - Sort through everything and get rid of those things you don't really need.

Other suggestions: Do little bits at a time. Stretch as much of the packing as you can over the time available, and move everything over a weekend. Try not to stress, because that only makes it worse. Utilize the kids as much as possible.

Can you tell I've moved recently? Hang in there. :hugs:

Ugh. You have my deepest sympathies. The thought of moving scares me.
