In addition to shaking up all our stuff, moving has shaken up how we do things in our household. The most important lesson so far?
Wear good shoes and always carry a good shoulder bag/tote.
We have no garage or even a reserved parking spot. At best we walk 30 yards from the street to the apartment. At worst? Well, let's just say it's a good thing I've got experience as an AT hiker. I never leave the house now without good shoes on. Our son learned about carrying a good bag when we left the public library with armfuls of books and had to hike to our parking spot.
On the plus side, I'm going to leave some excess baggage in Kansas: I've lost 5 pounds in this first week alone
