You know you've moved too many times when...
  • the scent of cardboard causes an instant escape mechanism response: turn, scream, run
  • half the boxes in the basement are still packed from the last move
  • you know the difference between packing tape and storage tape
  • you own a tape gun
  • you're the only one who can make your dishes fit in the original box they came in
  • you still have the box they came in
  • you don't hire movers because you know you can do the job better
  • you've learned to pack in small boxes
  • you've decided your next vehicle will be a pickup because it will make your next move easier
  • most the things you own are travel size
  • you know you can wait till the last minute to start packing and it will still get done...somehow

Christmas, New Year, presents, programs, lit trees, Luke 2 readings, family, shopping, decorations, cookies, long lost relatives, laughter. It's been a good holiday. I can't wait till next year.
