Seems as though I haven’t posted in forever – and at 17 days, it pretty much has been. FOREVER. I have missed sharing my words of – ahem – wisdom!
But mostly I have truly had this vacancy during this time, being away from all of your great blogs. It is a privilege to read and comment on such great writing in cyberspace.
Now that the EPIC move is over, and recovery (physical and mental) is nearly complete, I thought I would sum it up in JEOPARDY!, game-show, fashion.
With Alex Trebek as our virtual host, we end Double Jeopardy! with the category “MJ Monaghan’s Move.”
For $400, the answer is, “Pack and move yourself, without a moving company.”
The correct question is, “What is the most foolish way to make a move of 500 miles?”
For $800, the answer is, “A 26′ truck (the biggest) and a 20′ truck (the second largest).”
The correct question is, “How many U-Haul trucks would it take to move the Monaghan household?”
For $1,200, the answer is, “14 days and two separate, 1,000 mile, round trips.”
And the question, “How long did it take to pack and make the move?”
For $1,600, the answer is, “5 A.M.”
And the question, “What time did MLB and MJ get out of the house on the final day of packing?”
For $2,ooo, the answer is, “Steve, Kricket, Amanda, Chris, Max, and Amber.”
And the question, “Who ‘volunteered’, was coerced, or ‘wanted’ to help with the loading and unloading of the trucks?”
Our Final Jeopardy! answer will be a visual one:
The final answer is, “MJ’s left ear – cut, nearly through.”
And the question is, “What injury during the move required emergency medical attention – DermaBond (medical Krazy Glue) to put it back together?”
So great to have move #14 behind us!!
Do you have any moving stories you’d like to share?
Please do – it would make me feel SO much better!!
