So, now we get down to the nitty gritty, less than 2 days to the move, and I'm panicking!! Why? Because we don't have enough boxes, and I need them, we still have too much to pack up. Then I'm looking for coin wrappers. I only need 2, found one, but another one is evading me. Of course, I don't have any room to move around to check other places, so I know I can't find any where I want to try. For the most part, everything's packed up, so if I do have any, I certainly wouldn't know where to look. Still trying to figure out how to move the pets over to the new place, this is the first time moving with the dog and the guinea pigs, so it's going to be hard. I can't find the harness for the cat either, nor can I find his collar. I am so unprepared for this, and I still have to work today and tomorrow, which gives me very little time to get anything figured out. Stressing out so badly I have no idea what to do right now.

I understand you. I had gone through those confusions, frustrations, and exhaustions. Too many things to do , much beyond what I had originally expected. So, on the second time, having had the experience at the first time, I started with the packing work about three months ahead of time, packing things one by one, week by week. Oh, that helped a lot. And, I was pretty much all set and packed one month ahead of time. Wala !!

We started packing up in July, but we ran out of boxes and the like. However, I found someone to give my coins to, she needed them, so I didn't have to worry about the coin wrapper. But we're getting closer and tomorrow we get the keys, and start moving things over. It turns out that I'm not working tomorrow, which is nice. It's supposed to rain on moving day, but I keep my fingers crossed that it doesn't.

Hi. kris182_2000. I can understand your frustration. It seems as if you need a moving truck and a pick up truck to haul your animals right along with your move. I hope that you will have enough of time off of work so that you can move efficiently. I hope that things go more smoothly than they are doing now.
