My husband and I, along with our dachshund, recently moved from Florida to Boise, Idaho to be able to spend more time with our kids and grandchildren. Oh, the pleasure!
Because we were moving to a smaller house, we had a lot of sorting and giving away and planning and measuring to do. Oh, the pain!
Being able to find new homes for stuff we’d had for years? To get rid of STUFF? Oh, the pleasure!
To pack up the “keepers”? Oh, the pain!
You get the picture. The ups and downs of moving.
We had to drive two cars across country, driving fast, playing dodge with 18-wheelers. Painful.
Seeing part of our big, beautiful country? Such Pleasure.
Even though we hope we never have to move again, my husband and I are glad we did it. Especially when a little voice says, “Hi, Mimi! “Hi, Papa!”
