On the Move in Boston
How many moves does it take for a daughter to find a just-right place to live?
In our family, our daughter is approaching nine moves in the past ten years. There was a move to a new place each year during undergraduate school at UW- Madison. Then for three years, we were lucky. Our daughter stayed in one place while working on her Au.D. at Western Michigan University, but she made up for that by moving to Los Angeles for her fourth-year externship. After graduating, she surprised us when she accepted a position in Boston—all the way across the country— where she now works. Since arriving in Boston, she has moved twice and is now about to make her third and final move — so she tells us.
Call us crazy, but my husband and I have been with her each time she makes a move. Even though we keep telling her to find a place and stay there, helping her move is the highlight of my summer. You just never know what’s going to happen!
I leave for Boston this evening. Decisions, decisions. What do I pack?
If you’re interested in The Adventures of the Mad Movers, stay tuned for more on Friday. Stress levels should be high and that makes for good storytelling!
