Goooooooooood Morning!

posted in: Coffee Chat | 9

So, we’re moving over 1,000 miles away in less than two weeks and I’m sitting here at 5:41am with my feet up, coffee on the table and poking at my iPad. 8554167788026751817 Today I plan on taking procrastination to a level yet never seen by mankind or at least, in our home.  Please help me, I don’t wanna paaaaacccckkkkkkkk!!!!


Now, if you’ve read any of my posts you know that I am married to a wonderful, helpful, analytical man.  For every non analytical cell in my body he has seven.  He has researched “moving from Canada to the U.S. in a 26′ U-Haul holding all your worldly possessions, your wife, two cats, Cousin Itt, a couple of Elvi and pulling a car on a trailer” and knows all there is to know on the subject, or so he says… who am I to challenge this?  I think crossing the border freaks him out a little, my plan is to sleep through it.

While I was waiting for my coffee cup to magically fill I noticed the packing log on the counter.  Apparently the border gods insist that you have a list of all your crap and how many boxes there are and what box is where and all that stuff.  I’m telling you, if this list gets us across it will be a miracle!


Okay, first off, he’s a lefty, so no picking on his handwriting, he can’t help it!  Let’s carry on… Obviously this list is from our kitchen packing.  It looks pretty okay to everyone except me, I know better.

#3. Crystal glasses.  Folks … We don’t own crystal glasses.  I have no idea what this box holds.

#4. Fine China … Again, we don’t own fine china… I can’t wait to open the sucker and see what’s inside!

#s 8 & 9 say “Glassware – Fragile” so he’s saying that plain ole glasses are fragile but our crystal glasses and fine china aren’t?  What up with that?  See… If I’m a border god I’m taking one look at that and red flags are going to fly!

#11.  “Coffee Cups”… My writing… I have no recollection of writing this.  Ever.

The rest of the list is, well, okay, except for one GLARING boo-boo… Anyone see it?  Look closely… Look…. Look…. BINGO!  The list goes to #18 but where is #17???  hmmmm… Highly suspect if you ask me.


If we get past the border without receiving complimentary body cavity searches it will be a bloody miracle.

Stay tuned for further developments…

  1. This is funny. We didn’t have a list when I moved to the US from CA!! And they didn’t even want to see prinnie’s papers lol. They also didn’t look at our trailer. Guess we are just lucky!! :p :p :p

  2. You are too funny! Compile a list of jokes just in case you get stopped. That might take some of the heat off of you while they are calling in the crystal police! Good luck on your moving.

    • 🙂 Thank you!
      Now see, Judy, you’re assuming that they have a sense humour, and they don’t… These people are very boring and I usually wouldn’t give them a time a day but they are packing and I don’t mean boxes! 😉

  3. Oooo…a mystery box! I’m intrigued!

  4. Welcome to the US, you are heeelarious and I’ll take box 17 thank you very much!

    • Thank you, Rose! I’m American, just been living in Canada for the past 15 years. I’ll be so glad to be back on American soil and starting this next chapter of my life. 😀

  5. Definitely a far move hope all goes well!
