What I Hate About Moving!

I’m excited! We are moving soon! (In 2 months) We have already started packing and getting ready to move out of our apartment. We will be going from here to a townhouse for about 2 years until we are ready to purchase our first home. Moving is always such a lengthy process but we know that this will be our last move before purchasing our forever home.

I’m excited! Stressed, but excited. We are waiting for confirmation from the place we applied for that we have loved since the first day we came across it! This is part of the new beginnings I feel like we are stepping into. Over the years, I’ve learned to discern when God is trying to do a new thing in my life. I am open, willing, and prepared to do what needs to be done. I’m grateful that my husband and I are on the same page!

This will be my first move as a retired wife, so most of the packing will be on me. I’ve already started, but I may need to go back and get rid of some things. I hate dragging a bunch of old stuff to a new place. If I’m not using it and it’s been packed up for 6 months, what’s the point?! Like my sister said, I can get rid of it!

I’m expecting moving boxes today, so I can continue packing and preparing! I love the excitement but hate all the work!


  1. I always love the moving part but hate the work as well lol! Hope you get the apartment and it’s not until we move that we realise we have so much we don’t need.

  2. The nice thing about moving is it does force you to go through your stuff and get rid of stuff. Another nice thing is you’ve started early. Good luck!

  3. Wishing all goes well with the move, enjoy your new home! Moving house really is a great time to have a clear out and get rid of things you don’t really want anymore.

I want to hear what you think!
