Mother Laura says: We are right in the middle of a move–only twenty minutes away, but we’re still a mix of busy, excited, nervous and surprisingly full of grief about what we’re leaving, for me at least. So this week’s Friday Five asks about your experience of the marvels and madness of moving…
1. How many times have you moved? When was the last time?
I don’t now how many times we move when I was a kid, so I’m going to go with the adult years. I’ve moved six times since 1994. The last time I moved was in ’06 when I married The Hubby. We decided living in the same stat would be a good thing. 🙂 I moved from Kansas City to Chicago.
2. What do you love and hate about moving?
I love the decluttering, and I hate everything else.
3. Do you do it yourself or hire movers?
I wish I had money to hire movers. I’ve always done it myself with help from wonderful, gracious, and did I say wonderful, friends.
4. Advice for surviving and thriving during a move?
A back brace and lots of Bayer Back and Body. Or yeah, and a good set of tennis shoes.
5. Are you in the middle of any inner moves, if not outer ones?
I am moving away from being so negative about myself and seeing myself more as God sees me and in a much more positive light.
Bonus: Share a piece of music/poetry/film/book that expresses something about what moving means to you.
Under the Tuscan Sun. I would so totally buy a villa in Italy on a whim! Or Spain for that matter. And yes, I would still hate moving. 😉

I’ll have to come over and read your moving meme. Right now I’m printing out bulletins for tomorrow.
I’m so glad you like sermons and that they minister to you. I hope the house rehab continues to go well!
I dragged these questions over to my blog… hope that’s okay. Considering the place we are in right now, I thought it was so appropriate to think on these things!
And I read your previous post about how you were feeling about yourself too, and wanted to offer support by saying “I know”. I’m my worst critic. I have the most expectations of myself, more than anyone ever has on me. I’m pretty hard on myself for the most part and have to learn, am learning, that it’s not so bad to be who I am right now, as long as I’m allowing God to work on the junk too. Hugs and prayers to you…
And one more thing (talk about a drive by, catch all comment today!) I do enjoy each and every one of your sermons. THey’ve been quite inspirational as most Sundays, I am away from the “sanctuary” as I work in children’s ministries. Thank you.
Thanks Sally and Warriormare. Sally, I think my circular route keeps getter bigger with more road on the positive swing. 🙂
Ah, a great play. Decluttering is good – definitely a valuable exercise. And how the Goodwill loves it when I declutter! 🙂
Moving away from being negative- good for you, my inner road map seems to work on a circular route, I keep heading back there!!!
