lessons learned???? or learnt depending on what country you are from

"If we put that here, than we can put this on top of it."

"No, that will not fit there."

"Take that piece out and put this there, and then this will go back in!"

and on, and on........................................

UNTIL........

ta daaa

It ain't purty, but it works.
After two days of many, many trips back and forth to the base, the antiques are in storage. YEAH!!
Onto the boxes and suitcases. BOO!!!!
There were definitely lessons to be learned during this phase of 'THE MOVE'.........
lesson one: patience... a few failures. Okay, okay... a little more than a few:(
lesson two : longsuffering...which I am sure Steve feels he was successful in, because he suffered long when I failed my lessons in patience:)
lesson three: Steve is still terrible about protecting furniture when he moves. Oh wait, I already knew that, so that was just a review lesson.
lesson four: do not let your oldest child....i.e built in babysitter... go and have a two day Dr. Who marathon with Ms. Rebecca and Ms. Joan (from church) whilst you are moving.
Emma took up precious space in our tiny van AND she seems to take after me in her tolerance of moving. Oh my!!!!!
lesson five: MOVING STILL STINKS!!!!!!
......stay tuned for more of the drama from-- 'THE MOVE'
