Moving from home to home is a part of life. It’s never a pleasant process, but sometimes you just bite the bullet and you do what you gotta do. My family recently moved from Princeton to St. Cloud.

I was initially rather thrilled about it (and in most ways still am) because I no longer have to drive 40 minutes to work and there are ten times as many things to do for fun. However, it has taken an inordinate amount of time for us to get settled in to our new home.

We started moving belongings at the beginning of June and we’re STILL moving! Just when I think I’m done working my face off something else comes up and I have to do it all over again. Within the last week, I thought we finally finished moving – and then it happened.

I got the call to move even more furniture. Yesterday I had to drive to Princeton to pick up a VERY heavy couch and recliner. I then brought said furniture back to St. Cloud, removed 2 couches from my basement, moved the upstairs furniture downstairs, and then moved the new furniture.

I cannot stress enough how heavy this particular furniture was – and when you’re having to move particularly large and heavy pieces of furniture up and down stairs for 5 hours straight, it can get pretty exhausting.

So, just how long does it take for one family to move? Apparently 3 months. Keep this in mind before you decide to move anywhere. Heed my warning, it’s a nightmare.
