Moving time: Anyone got any Tylenol?

Last month we joined many other parents in our demographic by moving to a smaller home. This was our fourth move in 25 years. It was different from the others, however. You see, there are moves in the early years, when your kids are toddlers and all your possessions can fit in a pickup. Where the furniture is particle board and weighs 30 pounds. It's not really moving; it's a fun adventure when people pitch in and everyone grabs something like a Big Wheel. Laughter and joy are plentiful.
