slight compulsion

often, when i feel things are beyond my control (as many things are during a move across the country), i attempt to regain control in other areas of my life. yesterday this manifested itself into the weighing of boxes. yes, yes, i'm weighing boxes. do i need to do this? no. is it yet another way to organize my already tidy boxes, yes. so... i've taken every box i've packed so far and set it nicely on our scale, then after noting it's weight i write the designated amount in lbs on the top of the box, next to the contents of the box which are already listed out on masking tape. this way i figure when we go to pack the truck, we will know for sure whether or not we're stacking boxes correctly, heavy ones on the bottom. i think the movers that come to load us are going to wonder if i had a bit too much time on my hands while packing...

Oh Honey... I'm glad you are finding ways to comfort yourself and I did get a good chuckle at your compulsion. However, it's not half a bad idea. If we end up moving, I might just do the same thing myself. It's really quite practical if you are as neurotic as we tend to be. Love, Prayers, Hugs, and Kisses! :-)
