Some people like to make life a little tougher than it is

The lyrics to a favorite Cake song keep running through my head

Some people* like to make life
A little tougher than it is

So, Monday I realized that I could move. I thought about it and decided Monday afternoon to put the ball in motion. Amazingly, everything fell into place quite nicely in less than 24 hours. Now I have just over a week to move. It’s a good thing I hadn’t finished unpacking.

Everyone keeps asking me why, and I don’t really have a good answer. There are pros and cons. It just felt right and it goes along with my recurring theme of making life a littler tougher than it is.

I’ll be living with a friend from my ward in a basement apartment close to work. The place is beautiful and has a great yard. I’ll post pics once I’m moved in.

It definitely is a lot of work to move. But think of all the practice you've had this year: packing up a work office and reorganizing and packing up the new office and moving from here to there! Wishing you well in your packing! Hope you saved your boxes!

That's a rapid change of address. Not too many more moves and you will have moved as often as Mother and Daddy did when they were first married. I gather this is closer to work - always and advantage.

Hey, this was my 100th blog post! Happy 100th blog post to my blog!

I don't think anyone can move as often as Grandpa and Grandma did that first year. I came close in 2001-2002.

I saved some but not all my boxes. Eeek! The larger boxes had gone through multiple moves by the time I had them so weren't worth storing. Since I have a week to move, I'm moving things in shifts. Then the boxes can do double duty.

Good luck with the move!

Hey, if it feels right, go for it! Wish I was close enough to help.

You'll enjoy the cool basement during the hot summer!

1) I love Cake and you for quoting a cake song.
2) If you didn't move, I would not have met you.
3) I'm sad for the demise of well loved boxes.
