That is where I am at. In packing hell. I needed a break before my brain explodes. lol
I have found that all my Tupperware does pack nicely in trash bags. =) Just throw and go! (no worries...I did mark the trash bags TUPPERWARE so they won't be mistaken for trash. lol) And, I didn't waste a much needed box! (or 4)
Can I vent for a minute?
My DH has worked long long days. And this week...the week we close he works til 9 pm every day (or later). He is even at work right now. He is off to close, but then has to work again. I'm doing the bulk of the packing all by myself. Do you KNOW how hard that is to do with three kids under your feet and no adult conversation to help you muttle through? My 2 yr old is adorable, but is constantly in the way. My MIL did come help twice. So those few precious hours I got of help were GOLD!! I got more done with two of us, and stayed in a better mood than I am doing now.
I even am moving the bulk of what we have without him. I have my mom and aunts to help. All of us with bad knees and backs. Dh has to work. Hubby just has to move the bigger furniture.
It's fallen on me to pretty much prepare for the move, set up and cancel utilities, clean, keep the kids taken care of, keep tabs on the new house and keep contact with PM on what we've found needs done, keep the lists of what needs to be bought for the new house, pack, finalize bills, and actually move us. I am beyond overwhelmed and feel like I am going to break at any minute. I have NO help. I have cried 3 times now today already. I feel like I'm falling behind in my responsibilities, and will never get everything done.
My house is disgusting! It needs cleaned. But it's hard to clean when you're packing and boxes are EVERYWHERE! I have them in just about every room of the house. And the grossness of the house is getting to me too.
I feel alone in this move. I know I'm not, but it's how I feel. I feel completely overwhelmed.
I'm sorry. I just needed to vent. A few minutes to let it all out. I'm going back to packing grind now. Please pray for me. I need it.
