I've moved more times than I can count, and I always seem to lose pieces of myself on the way much sympathy on your packing woes!

Moved into my first apartment when I was 19, then a year later moved into a two bedroom in the same building, than had to move home for a year and a half and then I bought the trailer and been there for almost 6 years! so, what, 4 times? I hate moving too!

I have moved 50 plus times. a couple of times to a new country.
You have my sympathy. it sucks. but when you unpack all your treasures at the other end it can feel like christmas!
Packing is a job that will fill anytime allowed. I have packed over a month and packed in a weekend! the job always gets done!

Wow, some of you guys are professional movers...........

let's see......for me I've moved once at 17, then to Hawaii with my first hubby, then to California, then to South Carolina, then back to Ohio, then up here to the Cleveland area when I met Jerry..........I want to move once more to our 'forever' home and that's it!

I HATE packing/moving!! When I was a kid, my dad was a preacher, so we moved several times, finally this being the LAST place(that was in 1990) DH and I have lived in 5 different houses since we married(this being our LAST one) I dont ever want to pack again! I wouldnt mind moving but yes-the packing is what I hate!!

I too could be a professional mover! I was an army brat, so we moved alot in my lifetime... I started out in PA, moved while I was a toddler, moved again to NY, spent the next 12-15 yrs in NY, but moved at least 4 times on Long Island, then to Carlisle PA, then to Allentown PA, then to Philly PA.... and I just moved in Philly last September... and packing never gets any better... but I do love getting into a new place, and getting everything painted, and cleaned, and organized! I love that! It's a feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment! But then all my friends say I'm a little OCD...just cause all the cans in my pantry are organized, catagorized, and labels forward doesn't mean anything! Hey, I already told you I was an army brat!

I don't mind packing...it's the unpacking part I don't like. I spent all the time and effort packing only to have to unpack it all

Anyhoo, I moved out of my parents house to go to college. Spent 1 year in the dorm, then moved home for the summer. Spent 2nd year in a different room, same dorm. Then moved into summer sublease, moved into an apartment. Roommate and I were ready to kill each other so I moved into another apartment. Stayed there for 2 years, moved into a different apartment then best friend turned psycho. So then I moved home again.
Stayed there for 1 year, moved into apartment. Then B and I moved in together. Then we hated our neighbors, so we moved into a house.

Now we're talking about moving again...I don't want to though...I'm tired of moving 10 times in the past 10 years!!!!

I, too, have moved more times than I can count and I really tried. I was an Air Force brat, and there were five major moves (over 500 miles.) North Dakota to OK City. OK City to Augsburg, Germany. Augsburg to San Antonio. San Antonio to Ramstein, Germany. Ramstien to Arkansas. As far as moving from one address to another, I can count 7 times since I graduated HS in 1998!

Let me see! Packing does suck and I have had my fair share of it!! When I moved out on my own I don't think I packed. i lived in both houses for 6 months until my mom fianlly called me one morning and said "Are you moving or what?" She had dpacked all my clothes and trinkets and told me to come get them or she was throwing them out! I liked having 2 homes...
post #12 of 29
We moved several times when I was a kid and I've moved 7 times in the past 12 years, mostly due to job and lifestyle changes. I've been in my current apartment (we also own the building) for four years and have no intention of moving again any time soon!
post #13 of 29
We moved 4 times when I was a kid - I moved to the dorms my 1st year of college from home, then back home that summer, then back to a house with 4 girls for my last year of college, then back home for the summer, then to a house with 3 girls here in the Rochester area to be with my now ex boyfriend, I lived there for 1 year, then I moved to the apartment I am now with John, we've been here for a year, and I have NO intentions on moving anytime soon! Not until we find a house that I fall in love with!

I feel your pain, I hate moving too!
post #14 of 29
I totally hear where you're coming from..I have to be out by the 30th too, and I haven't really started packing..This whole breakup has turned my life upside down and the last thing I want to do is sit around all sad and pack boxes..packing is depressing all in itself.

10 more days, eep! Good luck with your move though

I wanst a military kid. my parents ust loved moving, my stepfather had an itchy foot, so every 6 months when i was growing up we moved. eep. I went to 6 HS's sigh. Thankfully ive only moved twice while my son has been around, hes 2, yeah thats once a year i know. We have actually been here for more then a year. But the energy in this house is TERRIBLE! you come here and you FEEL aweful! you cant wait to get out! My animals are dying here. By odd accidents. Its just... wrong here. I cant wait to get out. But im so stressed too. And im not spending a whole lotta time online or doing anything other then packing... i finally sat down and did something else last night.. i made my son a soaker for his cloth diapers hehe. So i was sewing by hand rather then packing.. my idea of fun.

Lina you know I hate packing, we had to get it all done in one week and thankfully we got all the packing, loading and unloading into storage done good.

I know how much it sucks, this is the third time we've moved in the last year.

And there will be at least one more move after this one (hence our stuff in storage).

So I feel your pain!

I have moved 9 times and seem to have things down to a reasonable level or craziness when I move. It is buts trying to pack boxes with a cat in the house.
post #19 of 29
Looks like I'm the third one scheduled to be out by the 30th. I can totally related on the hating packing. This is my forth move and I've hated everyone of them. It's redicious the amount of stuff I have and I keep coming across stuff that I'd tucked away that I'm scratching my head as to why I have it.

Do I really need two food choppers? Why have I hung onto the blender that doesn't work? When did I decided that I was going to crochet an afghan, and why didn't I ever start it?

Indeed. I just signed a two-year lease so hopefully I won't have to move in two years.

I'm not SURE the split is right for me, but I am sure that I have been thinking about it now for a while that he may not be the one for me. I think that if two people are meant to be, there would be NO doubts. i couldn't imagine marrying him, so why would I stay with him?

Any breakup will hurt after 3 years...even If I was cheated on, it would still hurt but that doesn't mean I should stay with someone.

Make sense?

Sorry for the highjack, I just had to speak my piece about that, as I do not want to second guess myself right now about this breakup.

Oh God Lina, I'm so sorry! I'll keep you in my prayers. My heart is with you.

OH my god, do I know where you are coming from!!!!!!!!!!!!

I moved 4 times before I was 15. Then when I turned 15 I left home to move back to Saskatoon(4months after my parents moved to another province btw) and since i have left home I've moved 10 times and I may just have to make this the 11th because of neighbor troubles. I absolutely do not want to leave. I am a student with no job, a three year old and DH can just pay our bills now with 8 hours of over time every check which is not garenteed.

We live in a decent area (where I grew up, its gone a little down hill though) accept that we got Shooty(you know what I mean) neighbors (other tenants in 4plex) and if we move, we'd mostly likely have to move to more of the same or worse because any decent place is out of our price range.

I don't know what to do either. If you need to talk about it just PM me anytime so we can commiserate!

I think that if the move is to get away from toxic or dangerous people (whether they be neighbors or family) than that's what's best despite how stressful the move itself is.

And other times, it's just financialy reasons......and sometimes it's military (I've had to do all three in the last year alone).

Move #1: Off military housing and into the civilian world due to my honorable discharge from the USAF.
Move#2: 8 months later cause we couldn't afford the rent and my non-parents....again I've written about this, said they'd help us out and what not and that we would have a much better year, yada yada yada, if we moved to NC.
Move#3: 3 months later, toxic folks show their ugly heads the above mentioned 'non parents' or 'anti-parents' as I may start calling them. And the ugliness that ensued.

There will be a 4th move but not until we are stable and on our feet again.

It seems like you've hit a rough patch dear. I'm sorry to hear that. But try to keep your chin up and remember, things will look up soon. I'm keeping you and your family in my prayers this week. Hopefully your hubby will find a new job quickly (sometimes the Temp agencies can place people in jobs fairly quickly...until he can get something more permenant, it might not be a bad idea to try). I hope your packing and the move go smoothly. If you need anything, remember TCS member are here to listen and help you
post #28 of 29
Hubby and I have been married for 19 years and due to work and other commitments we have moved 14 times, we have the packing and moving down pat and the cats don't even seem to bother about it, its just the way things are.

Hope that all goes well for you.
