Why?

Why does life have to be so complicated? Why can't we just enjoy being here, having a great job, and having everyone in good health? Why do I need to dwell on the bad?

Because I am saturated by the bad right now. I'm sure these are all very insignificant things, but they are building up and up and I'm having a hard time staying positive.

And another thing, why does it take 4 pounds of white movers newsprint to wrap one fork? Good grief! I think half our weight in household goods amounts to wrapping paper. I really don't care that much about a cheap plastic fork. I do, however, care about a few other things that arrived in pieces. Talk about mixed up priorty.

Still can't find our computer monitor. It was pretty big. Can't believe we haven't found the box yet. Tomorrow, internet is suppose to be set up. Hard to do that without a monitor.

Everything will work out! It's just that right now you are stressed, tired and in need of having a place to call home (that is all set up and neat). Wouldn't hurt if the kids were in school, too. Give it a couple weeks and everything will look better when your life is settled down. Giving you a hug from afar!!

Oh Shaina...TOTALLY know what you mean about all the excess wrapping paper...I even found ends of the wrapping paper thrown into our boxes..spool and all! Hang in there...things will get better. We've all been there done that so I know what you're going through!!

Yes, the wrapping paper thing IS bizarre - so annoying...

I totally understand how you feel right now. Just hang in there - things WILL get better really soon. your house will be all organized and functional sooner than you realize, you will sleep good in your bed, you will find plates in the cupboards and regular life will resume. Thinking of you tonight :)

Oh man! When we moved, finding things became my pet peeve. And boxes with just random crap in them. . .very annoying. I HATE MOVING!

Good luck. Just think craft room the whole time you are setting up your home.

Moving is so stressful. I remember all that white paper. I gave it to the kids to draw on to keep them occupied while I unpacked. This last move, for some reason, the packers put the coffee pot in pieces in different boxes. Can't make coffee without a pot. I was so ready to just go buy another one. It all worked out though. You'll be unpacked before you know it.

I do believe the movers pack like that in the hopes of getting extra money for al the "excess" weight. It's hard to believe they consider themselves professionals. Our first move they lost, or excessively wrapped so that we couldn't find, the turn table for our microwave and the base for my marble rolling pin. Just breath. We will be moving oursleves if/when we get our commission. :) Wish I could be there to help you unpack and get organized. Really. :)

Anytime there's a big change it is hard for me to adjust. I'm sure you're SO ready for your home to be put together and all running like clock work again. It's frustrating, I know.

You writing of your packers reminds me of the many times we moved with the military growing up and every stinkin' move my mom would be so sad that something of value would be in pieces. And, of course, the 'forks' would be ok. GRRRRR

I am laughing at the one fork wrapped in half a page of news print. We found the same thing here when we moved. Yet they weren't careful with the expensive stuff and we found out the moves stole about 5 pairs of designer jeans of mine . I had aha rd time the first few weeks I missed all my friends and my life back in Cali.
I think maybe that's why the little things seem so big because every thing has been turned up side down.
Just think on the bright side of things you have a Ross. Me I am doing somersaults just waiting for Target to open..
Hugs and hang in there..
Just remember you have lots of PP that love you.

This may be a little creepy because my husbands picture will show up with this but just know how great I think you are. I remember. . .but I'm still cursing doing it all ourselves. It's a no-win situation. I'm glad you're missing me because I'm missing you, too!!!

I know what you mean about the movers. There are shoes in boxes with kitchen stuff, and it takes forever to find anything and they over pack the non breakables but not the breakables. SOunds like you are finding your way there. Look for a Hobby Lobby, it is an awesome craft store that they have in the south. We found out after you left that we are going to have another baby in Oct, our last. That is as long as this one stays with us, we had a scare this week, but all seems to be fine now. Have fun decorating your new home. That is always my favorite part.
