Dear Mom & Dad,
How did you move a household of 5 kids from one country to another country every 2-3 years? I can't even move across town without wanting to... rip my arms off, pack my arms in a box, tape up that box, label that box MY ARMS and then kick that arm box all way to our new neighborhood. Seriously, how?

Dear Margie,
We had lots of professional help... and airplanes and freight ships for transportation. But yeah, moving really sucks.
Your Mom & Dad*

*Just kidding, my mom and dad would never say sucks.

My first though was- "wow, do your parents say suck?" My mom once said something sucked and we still give her a hard time about it.

And I can't wait to see pictures of the new house. If you don't want to blog them will you e-mail some to me?

No rush though; I can wait a few weeks. :)

ditto...about the pictures.

I wish we could be there to help. I'm going to try to be pregnant every time we move so I don't have to do heavy lifting. It was great this summer. If we end up moving a lot I'll have to rethink that plan.

I hear ya Margaret. We just did the across the country move for the 2nd time in 4 years and it is really not fun at all. Moving is one thing I can do without. I just wish we could poof all of our stuff from one place to the next. Let me know how I can help you! And we need to get together SOON!!!! It's been way too long and I still never got the update on why your close date got pushed back so far.

Yeah, we did to Florida and back in one year. The longer distance isn't as bad though, because the two day drive gives you a break between packing and unloading.

And did your folks really call you Margie? How cruel. ;-)
