No matter how good a job you think you did at pre-packing before a military move, it becomes apparent very quickly that you DIDN'T.
No matter how badly you wish that your furniture will look nice and new and cared for when it comes off the truck, it DOESN'T.
No matter how friendly your packers were while they put your most treasured things in boxes, they will still do a crummy job and things will be broken.
No matter how hard you work all day unpacking box after box after box, there will be ANOTHER BOX.
No matter how much bigger your new house is than your old house, there still doesn't seem to be room enough for your possessions (the ones you THOUGHT you pared down so carefully before it all started).
We're looking for the light at the end of the tunnel... it's there, we know.... this is the fourth time we've done this in 11 years. Grandma Poppins is here helping care for monkeys, and we're working pretty much nonstop to get it all done by the time she leaves. Wish us luck.
