The real reason moving sucks

So you think your in the clear. You've moved, nothing major was broken, and your internet is hooked up. It appears the roof doesn't leak, and your almost all unpacked. Hey, you think, why not whip out the wheel for a spell?


Huh. No flyer. Kinda needs that part. Now, I remember seeing a box. It was labeled 'flyers'. Well there are only a few boxes left, so this can't be hard.


Not here...

How about near the Buddha?

No flyers. I know, the pile of books near the basement door. I bet it got put over there.


Shit. On second thought, I'm pretty sure they where in a smaller, white box. Maybe it got stuck in the weird ass surrealist closet.


Empty. (like my soul)

Under the bed? The sofa? In the basement? No. Hell, maybe it got thrown out. *Freaking out* My god, my Woolee Winder is in there! Maybe the cat stole it. Where the hell would it be?!? A small white box!!


Oh yes, in the pantry. Of course.
(Repeat process for various objects 50 more times over the next several weeks)

I held my breath thinking you lost the flyer!! Sorry it took a bit to find it, maybe the flyer was hungry :)

Phew! Glad you found it! That closet is wild! Hoping you get all sorted out soon! Moving is no fun!

Your closet needs an appropriately surreal art installation inside.

Happy that you found the flyer! I hate those household searches.

yeah moving stinks. but hopefully you will not have to do it again for a very long time!

Aaaargh! It's so frustrating. Why doesn't everything that goes together fit in one box? It just never works out that way.

Oh my goodness, I just moved and went through the same thing! You think you remember where you put a specific box, you think you remember what was written on the box you are looking for. Then, it turns out you were looking for the wrong box altogether, and the boxes somehow got mislabeled anyways.

I'm right there with you. I have three of those surreal closets. They're cute and quirky, but these are not good qualities for closets.

Oh. My. Goodness. I feel for you Lunastrixae! I'm moving too! Wishing you well with the unpacking.

Just a note to say hello and let you know i haven't forgotten about you! I'm waiting for some wonderfully soft and yummy goodness to make its way to me so I can finish your second package!
