How NOT to move

-8am dentist appt for 4 morning before movers arrive
-agree to double tooth extraction for 2 children
-come back at 11:30am.... after driving 30 minutes to take children back to school
-Allow teeth to be extracted only to realize this was not a smart decision!
-Drive wailing children back to your hometown (you were in a neighboring town b/c of where the dentist was today)
-Realize wailing and bleeding children cannot go back to school
-Yikes! Realize you will be at home packing, etc. with children in tow
-Nearly run out of gas, which is unusual since you ALWAYS keep your tank half full
-Dissolve into hysteria several times
-Talk to friend who is a master mover & realize it is not smart for hubby to not be here for the packing
-Fall apart on phone with hubby
-Fall apart several times throughout the day
-Secretly shove things under seats in car so hubby won't know that you have taken things he said were best left behind
-Do it all without asking for God's help... if you had, things wouldn't have been so bad:)

I am so sorry you had a bad day. I have been there and no that this too shall pass--that which does not kill us makes us stronger, right?! I am praying for you.

I can't believe the day you had. Hope the packing is going well. I was doubled over laughing when you realized the bleeding, screaming children could not go back to school! Oh you have such great humor even in the most stressful situations! Love ya,
Marty
