We started packing early. We knew we had a lot to do and that not only we were moving in mid-June, but we were getting married at the end of May. We didn’t want to be rushing to pack and dealing with last minute wedding preparation all of it at the same time.
Packing a little every day also meant finishing every day in horrible physical pain and tears. I always feel bad because I look like the lazy girlfriend who doesn’t lift a finger. Having an invisible condition can be a constant battle to be believed and understood by the world around you.
I know that I will be useless on moving day and I feel guilty for everyone that will be coming over to help us. I am so relieved that this time around we will have professional movers. Normally, we wouldn’t be able to afford such help, but my father-in-law is booking and covering the cost as a wedding gift. I am so grateful.
