How to Survive a Move!

Moving… I think I could write a book on it by now.  If you've moved across country before you know this is not an easy task and you really need a survival kit.  


Since the packers finished their 3 day job in 1 day we had a day of rest.  Okay, that's not really true.  It's more like a day of clean up. Russ was taking down fish tanks and doing man stuff.  I was doing a little digital scrapbooking since every time I went to do something I couldn't… it's packed. For instance,  pour a bowl of cereal but there are no bowls!  Tried to be super mom and cook chicken nuggetts, but the pans are packed! GRR.  


Funny how quickly I forgot we needed camping gear for the next 3 days.  


No worries about the kids.  They are perfectly fine.  Having the time of their lives.  So it seems anyways!

Sometimes it's good to take a snoozie on boxes.

Then wake up feeling like you are on top of the world!

Then you have Brandon who has become a piece of our furniture.

Then you have Russ all smiley face for a bit….

Then find him like this 5 minutes later….

The key to surviving any of this is staying positive, laughing a lot and remembering that we are making really fun memories along the way.  

Speaking of memories.  While Russ was working I played a bit. 

I decided to have a little digital fun.  You will notice on this page I used a few outside digital art pieces from another company.  If you didn't know you could do this with My Digital Studio… you CAN! 

It's a great option I love because My Digital Studio is so user friendly.  Like I said before, this is so much easier to use than other photography editing programs.  Regardless, the process is what I love and I love capturing fun memories and going back for a good laugh. 

My friend Deb and I had a great time taking selfies in Salt Lake.  We captured our personalities well.  I just love her.

  1. Hi Kimberly,

    Looks like you are almost ready for your move. 🙂 I've been enjoying your posts. You are too funny. So, you can use other digital art in MDS? That is awesome.

    I hope to be creating more with MDS once I get more pictures uploaded.

  2. I bet your book would be a best-seller!  Perfect pictures and love your page.  Best of luck with your move.  

  3. Oh what great pictures….can only imagine what you are all going through…at least you have the option to get rid of things…sadly we have been in our house for over 36 years and I say we need to pretend that we are moving…what space we would have and be so excited at finding so many buried treasures…LOL!   Best of luck to you all!
