Moving into a new house always requires a LOT of work.
I fool myself on every move thinking about how we've purged so much stuff and unpacking will be a breeze this time.
It never is. We always get rid of just as much stuff when we are unpacking and we wonder why we didn't get rid of all of it before we moved.
There's also the issue of curtains. I have curtains that I haven't used in years but I can't get rid of them because you never know how many windows you will have in the next house. I've bought curtains for houses all around the country only to find they won't work in the next house we move to.
Fortunately on this move, I didn't need to buy new curtains, I already had a set that will work. But we did need to buy several curtain rods. Kerry had already installed a couple of them before Ben got here but we still needed one in the living room.
I suggested that he get Ben to help since Ben will be a husband soon and will have to be doing this sort of thing on his own. Then I set off to work on the kitchen. When I came back, this is what I saw:
Ben was reclining like Cleopatra on her barge while Kerry hung the rod supports.
I have to admit, I laugh my head off every time I look at this picture!
Then Kerry decided to change jobs with Ben!
