History of a mover

5 years ago - Ho hum....we are moving to Oregon tomorrow, I guess we better buy some moving boxes. Holy Moses, they are EXPENSIVE!

4.5 years ago - move back to Utah, grateful to not have to buy new boxes

4 years ago- move to Minnesota, grateful to have those gulldarn boxes laying around

3.5 years ago - move back to Utah. Whew, glad we kept these boxes

3 years ago - move to Texas, woohoo! The company is paying for new boxes! Let's get rid of this heaping pile of crumbling cardboard! Blaine: but, but, but....we might need them again someday! Me: Never! We will never ever move again unless a company pays for it.

1 year ago - Moving back to Utah - really? You really want to haul these boxes back to Utah? The company is paying for awesome new moving boxes. Why? WHY! WHY do we lug these boxes everywhere we go.

Today- moving from Lehi to Lehi. No one is paying for boxes. In humility I would like to thank Blaine for insisting we move our boxes around the country with us.

I went the first 21 years of my life without moving once. I think I have more than made up for it by now!

I think you have moved for us, too! We're excited for you. See you tomorrow.

Oh, I'm so sorry. We moved last week...it is horrific. I can't believe you moved that many times in that short of time. Can I come help you move in, unpack? Call me. 801-706-9327

I feel your pain (and your gratitude for the boxes). Not a fan of moving, but it's certainly easier and less expensive if you have all the right boxes.

BTW, we're really going to be in Austin at Thanksgiving, and we think you should be too.
