So this is what I've learned this week.

  • Moving is no fun. As in an evil, no good, hateful activity that does not get easier the more you do it. (Oh, did I not mention that I moved? For the 11th time in 7 years? Well, I did.)
  • Things that are broken before you move will be completely unusable by the time it reaches its destination. (cough, cough, like this side table)
  • Things that weren't broken before will break in the process of moving. Nothing a little hot glue can't fix, right?
  • If you leave your hot glue sticks in your car in Phoenix for 2+ days, they will become one large glue stick.
  • No amount of candles/febreeze will cover the stench of smoke from previous occupants.
  • It's a heck of a lot easier to live in a first floor apartment vs a third floor apartment.
  • Talking to people in call centers SUCKS. Especially when you work in one and can pinpoint what they've done that is against call center regulations.
  • There is a point that your brain will stop remembering yet another address, apt number, and mail box number. Which will make it a little difficult to to change your address with eleventyhundred different companies.
  • If you don't buy a router for your internet, you will be tethered to a wall whenever you want to use the internet, causing you to stand next to the tv to access it.
  • After purchasing a router, you should kidnap a smart person to set it up for you . . . .because setting up a router is hard.
  • Living .5 miles from work doesn't mean you'll get there earlier.
  • Navigating a 12 seater van at Sky Harbor airport at 6am is no fun.
  • Procrastination hits whole new levels when you procrastinate a surgery. (Yeah, I need surgery on my ear. And I've decided to pull it off until next year because I can't take that much time off from work right now.)
On a side note, if you or someone you know lives in the Thatcher/Safford area, you should check out my sister's preschool. She's enrolling kids right now and does a pretty awesome job. Check out her preschool blog here or email her @
