lessons learned from moving

  1. It's common advice to say double the time you think you need. When it comes to packing, quadruple it.
  2. Ask for help ahead of time with the heavy stuff. If you don't, your only shot is if you have Ian, Ben, Storm, and a church dolly.
  3. Don't try to do a full day of heavy labor on 5 hours of sleep and 3 doughnuts.
  4. No matter how bad your moving day is, a great husband and fireflies make you feel better.
