I had totally forgotten how horrible moving is. Or maybe I did not even know how bad it could be, since the last time I moved in 1998 I hardly had any furniture or much of anything other than some personal items, clothes, etc. There were no movers required, just a borrowed van and a husband to carry my stuff in.. Fast forward to 2010 ---> ---> ---> it took 6 guys, 2 16-foot long trucks and 12 hours to move our stuff. And we took a lot to the house little by little on our own...
We had so much bad luck with the move; it is going to be material for stories for years to come. But let's not dwell on the negative - all our belongings have been moved to Long Island, and we are now living amidst a chaos of boxes, and all kinds of stuff piles here and there.
The most important thing is that I love, love, love the new house. Why did I resist the move so many years?
