I Can’t Move, but we are Moving

We are moving on Saturday. As in, relocating from our little house on the prairie. Yes, as in this Saturday. In four days time.

I can’t see the carpet in my bedroom because it is littered with clothes, underwear, blankets, towels, cats, cat hair, books, shoes, pregnancy tests, a couple of balloons left over from my birthday that eluded me when I was popping their friends, a suitcase, tissues (used and new) and some toys. (Although, dear readers, in my defense, most of the clothes on my floor are in fact CLEAN – or, at least they used to be. I hate putting away laundry.)

The sink is full of dirty dishes, and both Brandon and I send evil telepathic messages to each other, trying to get the other to bite the adult thing to do bullet and wash them. I am entirely prepared to offer a sexual favor in return for the dishes getting washed. Today.

We have packed exactly one box, and by we, I mean Brandon. He packed up our DVD’s. Yay.

Cade’s room doesn’t stay clean for more than 4 minutes. He’ll sweetly ask me or Brandon to help him clean his room, which is totally adorable, only he wants it clean so he can gleefully trash it again. I’ve given up.

I have pregnancy fatigue. Doing something other than sitting, or preferably lying down, is totally unappealing. My legs and arms feel like jelly. I’m hormonal.

I don’t want to move.

Anyone wanna come help? I’m totally good for sexual favors and/or cash in return for some good, legit muscles that are ready to move.

Cuz I’m not.

Oy, moving is a pain. I hope your new place is awesome, and I am sorry you are dealing with feeling so icky. *hugs*

I hate moving, and can't even imagine moving pregnant! Good luck! And congrats on the pregnancy! Looks like we'll only be about a week apart!

Moving sucks. I've moved 3 times in the past 3 months. Most of my stuff remain in boxes. Good luck, I know it's hard, especially when you're tired. I hope it all works out in the end and all of you can relax in your new place. Oh, and just for curiosity sake, why are you moving out when you just moved into your new house? If it's personal, no problem, I was just curious.

Take care, H

H, I just realized that I haven't explained why I'm moving! I'll do it in my next post. :)

Marissa said...

I'm in! When do you want me to come help? Moving sucks big time, but I wanna come over and assist! And also see Cade bc I'll be gone for three and a half months starting September 1st.

P.S. You can keep the money and the sexual favors. :)

Oh my gosh. I was reading your blog aloud to my roommates and when I got to the "sexual favors" part, I heard tires squealing. When I looked up, Aaron and Lance were gone.

They don't know where you live but I'm sure they'll drive around until they find it.

If you end up still moving on sunday I'd be more than happy to help. I get back into SLC sat night and can dedicate you all sunday.

Kara said...

Brie, I wish I wasn't 1500 miles away so I could help you move!

Key to Moving:

- Guilt trip your Home Teachers and Visiting Teachers

Works every time. :)

Good luck! I know that everything will work out.

Ooooooof, moving is sucktastic. Luckily you have a big family (HELLO BRIE'S SISTERS) so hopefully they can help!!!

bananas said...

& I don't know where it was that you mentioned you didn't like your smile but you have a beautiful smile and should show it more. Got it, betch?

Cammy said...

I just moved, so I definitely sympathize. The only bright spot to the hellaciousness is that there is a definite end date for the madness, just think that less than in one week the worst part will be over!

Hang in there, I'll be thinking of you. <3

Brooke said...

Moving sucks girl. Hey, I will try to find a time to come and help you. Let's arrange a time. Maybe I will come Saturday and help while the kids play with Cade and keep hime company. We'll see.....we'll talk.

Krystle said...

Ha! I was wondering why you were moving, but I didn't want to pry... I hope it's for a happy reason! :)
