Harriet has only been through one move with me. She's lived most of her life in this house, so it's not surprising that she's a little unamused at all the moving chaos that has suddenly taken over her world. There are piles and stacks and heaps of junk everywhere. I spent most of yesterday doing laundry (mostly washing blankets and sheets that have been in sitting in boxes for the past six years). Harriet likes laundry days, because she gets to be surrounded by warm clothes and blankets and stuff. Last night, as I was watching TAR, I folded another load of clothes while Harriet crashed out. I love the way her cheek is resting on her leg, and her lips are all squooshed up.

Pandora, bless her heart, has been through umpty moves, so this is all old hat to her. "Yay, boxes! Yay, newspaper!" She's not the least bit concerned about what's going on, but good grief is she ever a pain in the behindermost. I nearly carried her out to the car this morning, because she'd wedged herself into a Rubbermaid tub full of towels and wash cloths.

I wish she were my supervisor. She seems very relaxed.

Serves her right. You'll just have to keep telling yourself "don't pack the cat. don't pack the cat."
I didn't realize the move was going to happen so quickly. Good luck with it all you'll be happy when it's over!

Zipper considers himself the official Lord Of The Laundry





Miss Brown will simply have to step aside for his Lordship.
Ahh Miss Brown looks like she washed, dried, folded, and packed the clothes.
Lady and Buck have made several moves with me and whenever they see large cardboard boxes. They stick close by, cux they think we are moving and they want to be sure to be in the truck. They have never been in a crate during their 13 and 14 years of life except when we move and I don't want to lose em at a rest area..etc etc Since I have had the young dogs. I now have crates for a variety of reasons. Lady and Buck are just calming down and getting the message we aren't moving. They are funny and smart. It is not as if we have moved a dozen times either.
Happy packing. Are you getting rid of anything or taking every posession? I have boxes unopened from this last move 8 years ago..Yikess.
Be Free,

Good Ol' Murphy moved often enough that her ears would go down when the cardboard boxes came out for the next move. Thankfully, her last years were stable (other than when I ripped out the carpet, but that's another thread).

That's because she knows her minions will do her bidding.
Serves her right. You'll just have to keep telling yourself "don't pack the cat. don't pack the cat."

Or, at least, "If you pack the cat, don't forget the litter box!" Pandora's mamma did something similar. On her last move, she sneaked into one of the first truckloads, so that she could better supervise goings-on at the new house. Pandora comes from a long line of adventurers.

Thanks! I only wish it were going more quickly. I won't be able to move the big stuff until Sunday/Monday, so until then, I'm just taking a carload every day and dropping it off after work. I should be all done, and the old place cleaned, by the middle of next week, though. Huzzah!
