Packing

We're carefully wrapping and packing--almost like this.

Good thinking! Can't be too careful.

Darlene said...

That is the worst part of a move....packing everything up!

Neabear said...

Wonder the owner of the bike thought? Good luck with all the packing. That is the hard part. Well....the unpacking can be hard too I guess.

As I said in another comment, packing is good --since it forces us to get rid of stuff we have kept for years and years, and yet never used...

When I packed to leave Texas (coming back to TN), I got really organized --and that helped when I unpacked. I had things marked for certain rooms and even had things packed that I wasn't sure I would need at all (and those were marked for the attic)....

Good Luck, Sally...
Have a great day.
Hugs,
Betsy

Hate to pack, such a job. But try to remember you're going to a new adventure and unpacking can be fun. Hugs, Marty

Happy Packing! Exiting times!

Charli and me said...

Take your time. It's easy to become over whelmed. Mark all of your boxes. What an adventure! I hope you have a wonderful day ♥

Hi Sally...Whoa...I've been on a bloggy break a couple of weeks & look what I find out when I returned...You've already sold & you are moving on...I love the floor plan of your new home...You know it has to be the right decision when everything falls into place as quickly as this did..
I wish you a safe & dare I say "easy" move... ;-) Bo

Good luck, that is the only thing I disliked about moving..packing and unpacking, till we built in 1971 We moved 12 times in 10 yrs...I got real good at it. Now after 38 yrs. I sure would hate to have to try ...but I know you are so excited about being closer to the kids.

Cathy said...

Cute, Sally - Reminds me of how they used to move some music exhibits at Wal-Mart.

Barbara H. said...

Oh my word...I wonder how many boxes of plastic wrap they used? I would have loved to have seen the poor owners face when he saw it.

The Quintessential Magpie said...

You simply can't be too careful, Sally! And if it's upholstered, this really is a good solution! It saved a sofa and two chairs of mine that were moved in hot weather with sweaty movers who couldn't help the heat or the sweat. ;-)

XO,

Sheila :-)

Clif said...

That's funny. But packing is no joke! Hope things are going smoothly for you.

Neas Nuttiness said...

That was one heck of a lot of plastic wrap!

Lorrie said...

Good luck with the packing Sally. How soon do you move?

Deare Diary said...

I like playing pratical jokes but I am afraid that my husband would not think that it was funny if I did that to his motorcycle.

Sally, I am moving too. When will your move be over?

Shelia said...

Evening, Sally. Oh, good luck with all of your packing! Hope all goes smoothly with your move!
Can't wait to hear all of your stories and I know you'll have some!
Be a sweeie,
Shelia ;)

Can you imagine unwrapping this? My Dad worked for the railroad and we were transferred to a new location. The moving company was told to give us the "white glove" treatment. They packed everything. I mean everything. We had pizza for supper that night. They wrapped the leftovers in paper and put it in a box. My Mom smoked then, they wrapped her ashtray, ashes and all. It was insane. Happy Packing! ~ Robyn

Where are you going to, Ms. Sally? :)

jlshall said...

Better you than me! Oops, sorry - that wasn't very nice. But I really hate moving - and the packing is always the worst part. Well, until the unpacking comes around. Hope everything goes smoothly, with no nasty surprises. Just keep repeating over and over: "Moving is really a fun thing to do!"
