High Stress Zone Ahead

We’re moving into a new home in about a month. Between that, work, a wedding I’m shooting, another shoot, moving, packing, hauling boxes to storage, packing, packing, throwing away stuff, work, packing, more throwing away stuff, not sleeping, more packing and more hauling, well, it’s going to be a crazy month.

In the end it will be worth it, but right now it is just sleeplessness and nausea-inducing.


I snapped this with my iPhone the day we viewed it and knew we wanted to make it ours.




  1. Good luck in the new abode! They say that moving home is one of the most stressful times in our life times. …….so all the very best and remember ‘it will all get done in the end – even if at times you will wonder!’


    • This time I needed Google Translate : A move is a good opportunity to organize and bring order. I know that. We care too much “it can still be used!”

      Indeed! We plan on lightening our load with this move. 🙂


  2. Buddy and the animals are in for a whole new lifestyle.
    I know you must all be feeling at the end of your tethers? But if it is where you feel the next chapter in your life begins, then that’s fantastic!
    Best of luck to you all. Try hard to get some rest if you can Carissa, it’s such a stressful event. But, once you are home…….it’s soooo worth it!


  3. Looks like a great home, and everyone is right. It’s worth it, and I’m so glad you have a professional to help you. We did the whole thing ourselves the last time and that’s the last time we’ll do that. The throwing stuff away or giving it away is really worth it. Good luck!


    • Rita, when I say professionals, I don’t mean movers. I mean the people who are taking care of all the paperwork for the sale. The logistics of that are going to be fun as both closes basically happen at the same time. And our buyer has his stuff on the way and is anxious to move in as soon a humanly possible.

      We will still be relying on the kindness of family and friends for the actual grunt work of the move.


      • Uh-oh. Oh well, I know you’ve got lots of family and friends who will help out. Maybe just have a keg on hand to keep them going? A pro for the paper work is smart too, although we did one of them ourselves, with advice, and that worked too.


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
