Apologies for disappearing on this blog for about six weeks. I got a bit side-tracked. Not only were things crazy busy at the office, but my wife and I moved houses. Since we decided to take our kids with us, the move pretty much consumed all of my spare time. All of our possessions are now in the new house, so I figure I can start up this blog yet again. (Note that I said our possessions are in the house, not that we are unpacked. That might take a little while.)
We only moved about quarter-mile from our previous house, but the funny thing about moving is that regardless of whether you move a quarter-mile or a 100-miles, there is still a certain amount of overhead associated with moving. If you think about it, in order to move, you have to touch every single item that you own. To help with this process, at the very end of the packing, my wife and I implemented the “one-touch rule.” Every item got touched once, at which point we either packed it or threw it away. A great purging and organization exercise, and a reminder of how much stuff one family can accumulate living in a house for just five years.
Anyway, I’m back now and will try to be a more diligent blogger. By the way, if you are looking for a mover, I would highly recommend our moving company, Big Foot Moving and Storage . Very professional, reasonable prices, and they took great care of our stuff.
