life in a box

does anyone else's house look like this?

 i hope not. i wish this upon no one. i DESPISE packing. so much so that i have been putting it off and putting it off, until i just can't anymore. and the only thing worse than packing, is having to live in a house that is already packed. every square inch of your home is uprooted and moved into a new and temporary home.

for example: let's say that one's husband needs new batteries for the remote. like, really NEEDS. it's his last night (for a few weeks) to completely veg out and his precious remote does NOT WORK. seriously? seriously. so, since this husband may (or may not) have the best wife in the history of the world, she goes rummaging through 75 different boxes, to find the one with the batteries. all to find out that one's husband needed AA batteries, not AAA.


the new house can't come fast enough. i'm ready to live my life again.

anyone up for a bonfire? we've got lotsa boxes to burn:)


  1. You crack me up. I'm sad you have to pack but I really don't feel toooo sad because you'll be in DES MOINES VERY soon!!! Yay!!! Can't wait to be in the same city! :)

  2. Soon, soon, soon! I'm looking forward to helping you unpack all of it.

  3. Aww I feel for you, Mag. What a great wife you are! :) I'm so excited for you to have a home to settle in! Can't wait to see photos and hopefully see it in person someday ;)

  4. Hi Maggie, I hear it's cousins to the rescue tomorrow. Rock & Nelson will be on their way in the morning
