Being a military wife, I am not unfamiliar with moving. In my brief four years married to my love, we have moved eight times. Oh yes. EIGHT times. And in May, we will move a ninth. We bought our first home in December, and have been paying a rent and mortgage ever since (ouch). But the difference between this move and our others is that now? I have my precious Pyrex to move. I began collecting a little over a month ago, and embarassing, my collection has grown rapidly. In the excitement of being a new collector, I went a bit crazy on Ebay and Etsy. After the first bit of collecting, I slowed down and began thrifting alone. But the damage was done. I haven't displayed any of it. Instead, everything that arrived packed nicely has stayed packed. There's no point in displaying when your home is so temporary.
Y'all? I have a heck of a lot Pyrex to pack.
I am scared. Very scared.
If any of my Pyrex breaks? I might cry. Previously when we've moved, I didn't have much I cared about being destroyed. Most of our furniture has been hand-me-downs. As far as dishes go, well, they're just dishes. I have a few nicknacks that are important, and I always just tossed them in my car to make sure they weren't hurt on the moving truck. But now, I'm terrified that the collection I have spent money on (probably too much, please don't mention it to my husband) will be destroyed. So, I've been using a generous amount of bubble wrap and plan on putting it all in my trunk. Any other tips? Who else has moved with Pyrex? Were you as scared as me?
