Moving cross country

Normally when I move to a state I stay there for quite some time. I was born in Delaware and moved to Maryland with my mom when I was about 10 years old after my father passed away. I stayed there until I graduated high school then went into the Air Force and was stationed in Rome, New York (I don’t think the stint in basic training counts). I got out of the Air Force, went to college in the same state then moved to Georgia. That was in 1995 and I’m still here.

I, of course, have visited other states, but tend to appreciate consistency and stability especially with having children. Top that with the fact that moving is a bit, uh, distasteful to me and I have a formula for “stayputedness.” But just last night I was talking to a friend about California, which happens to be one of the states where I would love to live. He said it is one of the places he misses especially ‘cause of the nice evening temperatures.

That got me to thinking about what it would be like to move across the country. Would it be possible to hire LA movers to load all of our belongings in Georgia and make the cross-country trek? I have a picture in my head of driving into our new neighborhood with the top of the van piled high with boxes and the moving truck lumbering up behind us. You know what I mean? Like the scenes shown in a lot of movies.

I have quite a daydream going of how that would be. It makes me feel like a celebrity just to think about Los Angeles movers handling my household items… almost like the lady in the commercial who feels like she drives a rock star’s car because of the very impressive little phone she uses. Remember that?

‘Why isn’t this working,’ she says to her husband.

‘Because we drive [that],’ he says pointing… She turns with the funniest snooty look on her face… Can you picture it? That’s me; in Los Angeles.

Before I get too excited I better click to get a free quote from the Los Angeles moving company. When is the last time you moved? Share some of your favorite, tried-and-true moving tips in the comments.
