Moving ain't easy...
When you are moving, you need to make the house look as if no one actually resides there. When you eat something, you must immediately wash your dish, or throw it away. When you are undressing at night, you must not only toss your clothes in the hamper...they must also land there. Halfway isn't good enough anymore.
You have to always worry about curb appeal, so no junk left on the porch anymore; I have seriously flipped out over a forgotten water bottle innocently left on our porch. "Someone might see this!" I shrieked, to a bunch of surprised eleven year olds who were playing basketball (and dirtying up the street with their scuffmarks, no doubt). My husband heard a half-hour lecture on the woes of my world when he lost his mind and put his briefcase by the door instead of jamming it in a closet the way I showed him to do.
And, the less tangible things Soon, the walls will be bare, the windows without drapes, and just hooks and nails will remain; along with all the memories you have made here.
Change is good; right? Right?
