College Move In: Year Three


Year one was the year of the space bags. I was simply out of my mind. Seriously, the dog was nervous that she would find herself in one of these bags with the air sucked out of it with a vacuum. It was the year of the famous 10 lb. dorm room in 5 lbs. of luggage.

Year two was the sorority house move in. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 90 degrees, of course no air conditioning, 3 flights of steps, a lost printer and the embarrassing UPS story about the lost 21 lb. box of shoes.

I swore I was done with move in and move out, but when your kid is only home for 3 days in August you sacrifice some sleep and break every nail on both hands just to squeeze out a little more time with her.

This year lacks drama big time. Home from camp on Sunday, upack, 13 loads of laundry, and re-pack. This kid is amazing, in 45 minutes she packed for a whole semester. It took me longer to pack for the 2 days I would be gone. In my defense there was a weather check and I had to make adjustments.

So off I go to Madtown, one of my favorite places. With my daughter, one of my favorite peops.

I am sure there will be a few good blog posts out of this one.

    We did space bags in Year One too!! This is only Year Two, and we’re moving to an apartment this year. I don’t know whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing. Will report back.

  3. Oh, good luck. I start this next week.

    Hope it goes well. Daniel’s latest move in Madison was last week and it was a breeze. Mostly because for the first time, I WASN’T THERE!! j
    Have a blast, will be thinking of you—with a smile.

  5. Good luck. Looking forward to the stories!
