How to have a nervous breakdown: vol 1

Day one of project 'move to new house': drive to home depot for boxes. Baby screams. Can't carry boxes plus baby. Boxes fit awkwardly in cart. Baby screaming continues. Self checkout. Try to scan large awkward boxes. Need assistance. Baby freaking the eff out. Pay for boxes. Struggle to get boxes in car. Get home. Baby furious. Try to tape up just one box. Tape end disappears. Screaming baby. Tape sticks to itself. Tape in crumpled ball. Tape not cutting on cut edge. Baby losing mind. Finallly tape ONE box. Nurse baby. Cry. Deep breaths.

Boxes packed: 0

Days till move: 7


  1. Kind of behind on my blog reading here . . . damn those packing tape dispensers! So, did you move? Did you survive? Hope you hired some help!

  2. Tape sucks. Self checkout lines suck. Boxes suck. Moving sucks.

    Sorry, babe. Wish I could make you a nice, stiff drink!
