The Joys of Moving

I'm sure that you have noticed that my updates have been irregular and sometimes few and far between. This is because Isaac and I are in the process of moving to a new apartment. Here are some interesting things about moving:
-You have to pack all the stuff you won't need in the near future first. But you inevitably wish there were some things you left out.
-You always have way more stuff than you initially think.
-I like to have background noise, so here are the movies that I did not pack:

-Streaming Netflix (mostly episodes of Cheers) is another great way to drown out sounds of packing.
-I also had to keep some books available, so here are the books that I did not pack:

-Apartments look so much bigger without all the art and pictures and posters on the walls.
-Boys are odd about packing. Isaac has not packed yet because he informed me that he can pack and move all of "his stuff" in one day... In general I have a lot of stuff, and I certainly don't expect him to pack it all. However, if you want to get technical, all the dishes, silverware, glasses, mugs, almost all of the cookware, and (minus a couple pieces) all the furniture is mine. Interesting. I take that to mean that he no longer wants to use "my" stuff. Right? Not our stuff, no. I find his unwillingness to combine our things alternately amusing and frustrating. Plus, I have already packed some of his things so I am not sure why the courtesy is not two-ways. Anywho...
-Packing is stressful, hence some of my frustrations with Isaac and his with me. (He is very annoyed about how much stuff I have. And I really do have an insane amount of stuff, which I am trying to cut down with varying degrees of success.) My mom thinks it might be a miracle if we are still speaking by the time we get moved, haha! These issues have been since cleared up for the most part.
-It is easy to get distracted by watching the movies I set aside, reading, or playing Pokemon on my DS... which is something I don't do often otherwise.
-Just when you think you are making progress, you remember how much stuff you still have left to pack.
