With thoughts of Youth and Stewardship, Pre-marital counseling and the Catechisms, and the book American Jesus swirling around in my head. Added with the fact that I think I am getting sick and it looks like my first call interview might be in the next week or so…..I decided to answer questions to the Friday Five that I found on Lutheran Zephyr’s blog.
1. How many times have you moved? When was the last time?
During College I moved back and forth between college, Calumet and Home. So not counting every time I did that I have about 10 moves under my belt. I hope that the next move will be my last for a long time.
2. What do you love and hate about moving?
I love the feeling of complete organization when things are packed up. I actually know where everything is and I am amazed by what I find when I do pack things up.
I hate the actual moving part. I do not like carrying the boxes, straining my back and how fast hours turn into days, which turn into weeks.
3. Do you do it yourself or hire movers?
I have never hired movers but I heard they rock and I hope that might be an option this next move. But there are lots of the bigger stuff we are going to throw away. Including the couch, desk and dining room table that we paid a total of $100.00 about four years ago. I think we got our money’s worth
4. Advice for surviving and thriving during a move?
Start early because you always run out of time and you will find yourself throwing stuff in boxes when you could of thrown it away.
5. Are you in the middle of any inner moves, if not outer ones?
I am moving all over the place. We will be moving to my first call site in a few months (I hope) and I feel like I am always learning and growing as a person and individual internally. So yea we are pretty busy moving wise.
Bonus: Share a piece of music/poetry/film/book that expresses something about what moving means to you.
