Are you looking for some marriage advice?
Here it is…
Packing does not strengthen marriages.
For instance, if a wife suggests to her husband that he should pack up the kitchen instead of watch the Phillies game, he will be very cranky. He will then proceed to pack up all the Tupperware (oblivious to whether there are the right amount of Tupperware tops to go with the bottoms) and this will make his wife super cranky.
The wife will then have no choice but to rip open the box, put the correct tops with the right bottoms and get rid of the random ones. The husband is fine with this because he probably thinks his wife is crazy and he’s now back on the couch watching the Phillies game.
Yes, we’re moving again. Same town. Different house. Same husband. Different moving philosophies.
I see moving as a chance to sort through our belongings and purge our junk. My husband sees moving as a chance to throw all our stuff in boxes and find a place for the crap in our new house. (I’m sure he would agree with this statement. If not, he’ll have to start his own blog.)
So my to do list for the next few days basically consists of packing and TV watching because it suddenly dawned on me that we will lose all our DVR saved shows when we move in a few days. This is a tremendous amount of pressure. I have “90210,” “Melrose Place,” “Parenthood,” “Glee,” “Nurse Jackie,” “Modern Family” and probably more. I feel like I’m gearing up for a TV triathlon. Please wish me luck. I will drink plenty of water.
P.S. Speaking of beverages, if you are coming to our house in the next few days, please bring your own coffee cup. Rick pretty much packed them all.
