I have no more moving meltdowns now that I finally learned I am too old to move all my worthless crap myself. I hire movers to do the hard work for me. It is money very well spent

Amen! Never fallen asleep so fast in my life than that first night.

I assume all worked out?
Yes, we got there with just enough time. At that point all the pressure was on the lady in the office-- She had to speed-speak like an auctioneer to explain all the leases and addendums and agreements and other numerous crap we had to sign so she could go home!

That is the way to go.

And I don't suggest making your first big move at the age of 41 like I did! Better to do it when you're young, energetic and can bounce back from pretty much any stressful thing that could occur.

Keep the stories coming, I think they're fun.

When I moved from my hometown to a city 3 hours away, we were under the gun to get the lease signed, too. It was hot, the cats were in the car, so we also got the abbreviated version

I made my first major move when I was 41. Almost exactly a year ago, to be exact. From Des Moines to Phoenix. It is amazing I didn't have a major meltdown on that trip, the car broke down 3 hours from Phoenix and we had to spend 5 days at a Motel 6 in Holbrook, AZ while it got fixed. All we had was a vending machine and Denny's to eat. 2 people, 2 cats, 2 chihuahuas in a motel 6 for 5 days. And I took it in stride. Had to laugh, really. What else could I do?
