Barbara, you aren't doing all your packing yourself, are you???

Well, there are some things, like books, that you don't want the packers packing. At least that's how I felt when I moved from Texas to California.

Besides, given how long it takes to pack books, I wouldn't want to add that time to the hourly wage of the packers.

Thanks for the open invite, Barbara. I'm cat-friendly so that's no problem.

Is this move going to create a change to this BBS, Barbara?

I, for one, would hate to have to move--and I know it is something I will have to do within a year, as my spouse is adamant about giving up this house and taking an apartment.

No change to the board, Pete.

The movers will pack dishware, pictures, and other breakables. It is indeed those books -- and papers and office supplies -- that are causing the problem. The new place will have exactly double the floor space I have now, but I estimate only about half the wall space. Too many big windows, not enough room for bookcases, file cabinets, storage cabinets. I've already disposed of almost 3000 books, and I'm not finished yet. Moving hurts.

I packed nearly everything myself for both my last moves - half of the stuff from the 1990 move was still in storage when I moved in 1996. I think I'll have an estate sale before I have to move again.

But the "office stuff" as Barbara said remains the worst of it and the part you simply have to do yourself. At least a move would inspire me to clean up the office.

And, on that subject, Barbara.....if you can possibly fit it in among the cat carriers, I'd try to move the computer myself. Of course, in 1996 I only had a laptop to deal with and few if any pereferals.

But I'm just not sure I'd trust my computer to a moving company.

I have absolutely no desire to move, although my husband brings it up from time to time (he works 45 minutes south of Philadelphia, in Wilmington, and from his point of view it would make since to move to a Delaware County suburb). But the thought of packing everything up, not to mention UNpacking it at the other end, well, I'd rather not think about it. Good luck, Barbara!

I'm late chiming in, but I too feel for you at needing to move -- I hate hate hate the process, I moved to my present address 7 years ago, and I'm not planning on moving from where I live now for a good long time.

It'll be odd for me to think of you living anywhere but Pittsburgh -- you seem to "belong" there somehow, maybe because it's in so many of your books. (Also because I like the city so much.) I wish you well with the whole process.

Thanks, Liz and Jon. I'm already beginning to miss Pittsburgh and I haven't even left yet.

Is anyone here familiar with the Phoenix airport? Is it big? I have only half an hour to make a connecting flight there and if my plane is late, I'm in trouble.

For some reason I thought you were driving cross country...which, even without cats, would be pretty rough this time of year. Do you have to get the cats through the airport, too?

This site gives a sort of map of the airport: http://phoenix.gov/AVIATION/maps_dir/terminals.html

I've been through Phoenix in the past -- although I don't recall if I had to change planes there (traveling on Southwest). It didn't seem to be a difficult place. If you're staying on the same airline, especially.
