In my humble opinion, moving is right on the list with the worst experiences one can have.
I absolutely hate it.
And, I should know because I have had to pick up and move many times. This last time, it was even worse as I have a family that I have to uproot. The kids were naturally incredibly bummed they had to leave their community of friends. Yet, their is some excitement about the short term rental we are moving into. This short term housing option is an absolute blessing for this move. Plus, we are moving to an area where we have vacationed in the past and that is also exciting for the entire family. I had to go out early and stayed in the corporate suite. It was okay but far too small when my wife and kids came out to visit. When the house sold, they moved into a furnished month to month rental in order to finish out their school year. When they did, they joined me in a place that I was able to find with a month to month lease. This allowed for us to have a temporary home in our new area. And, we could start our life again a bit while we all looked for a permanent home. It has been a wild ride. The kids and my wife have been nothing short of amazing. I actually told my bosses that we are staying put until the kids are out of school or they can find someone else. The month to month lease and short term rental is great. But, there is nothing that replaces the feeling of being home.
