Whimsy Update: Moving House


The Whimsys are moving house. Mr. Whimsy has been offered a better job (in one of the smaller cities we've been wishing and praying for) so we are officially packing.The down side? I'm usually packing when I should be reading. *insert pout* Consequently, please forgive me if it is slim pickings until August and the dust has settled.

  2. Congrats on the better job and so hate the packing of the house. I'm sure that the smaller city will be much cooler that you are there.

  16. Congrats to Mr. Whimsy on the new and improved job!

    I'm right there with you, Juju. We are moving in August, cross-country, and I am usually packing and doing house-related things when I would normally be reading (particularly since my hubby is at his new station - - that would typically translate into more reading time for me).

    Best of luck with your move and hopefully we'll both be back to normal in August!

  35. Juju, we haven't moved yet. It feels as though it's been an ongoing thing FOREVER! My hubby is already at his new duty station and between that and being deployed, we have only seen each other for 6 days since the first week of January. I am definitely ready to finish up with this entire process!

  36. Lori: Oh no darling! I had no idea! *hugs* You poor thing! *more hugs* It's times like these I wish I could wiggle my nose like Bewitched and have all my packing done.

    Freda and Alessandra: Thank you :D

  37. Congrats to both you and Mr. Whimsy! It's so nice when things finally fall into place so that you can feel you're moving forward as opposed to being in a state of constant waiting. Yay!!!

    Good luck with the move! Books fit nicely into easily stackable boxes, so it should be easy, right? LOL. I mean that's all there is to move right??? hehe No really, good luck and enjoy your new place & Mr.Whimsy's new job! SO exciting!

    I quickly informed Mr. Whimsy he was not to pack my books :) and that my TBR pile would come with me (in my car) in the final batch.

  45. Congrats on the new job!!!

    good luck moving! i've only had to move once and i'll admit i hated it. trying to cram every possession you own into boxes, trying to decide what to keep and what to throw away, wondering how in the world you manage to accumulate so much stuff. it was quite stressful. but on the brightside at least you're moving towards a better opportunity. :D
