Aahh… the travails of last-minute packing. One cannot begin to say what this means. You’re caught up with the frenzy of throwing things here and there and you surely neglect to bring some important things with you. And some other things that seemed unimportant during the packing frenzy and you suddenly realized it is important. You panic, you’re stressed out, you’re hungry, you guzzle down, you gain unwanted weight, and the circles under your eyes grow a tinge darker… the horrific list can go on.
A harried move will leave you mentally, emotionally and physically strained. The thought of leaving something important and some loose bits and ends hanging back there is totally nerve wracking. Because no matter how organized you are and how quick you are, if you don’t have ample time in your packing process, you will surely fumble all over the place. You will surely leave something behind—like the charger for your cell phone, perhaps? Or did you just forget the cable for your I Pad because you definitely remembered unplugging it from your Mac book and you were holding it in your hand. Now, it seems that you didn’t or did you?
A harassed and last minute packing will leave no time for farewell parties. This is important because it is not easy to leave family and friends behind. It’s not going to be easy when you settle down to your new place – especially if there were no proper goodbyes. No closure will give you difficulty in starting over in your new place.
If you give in to this crazy idea of last minute packing, you will definitely forget other important things in moving. The most commonly forgotten thing even in normal-paced packing processes is informing the utility providers. You’ll miss out on these very important things – your telephone, Internet, gas and electricity providers, even your newspaper delivery will continue charging you if you fail to inform them about your move. Consequently, the same thing is needed when you move to your new location. You definitely don’t want to get in your house, too pooped beyond words after that exhausting packing and then the long transit and then you switch on the lights and they’re not working. When you open the tap, no water comes out. You panic and you need to make a phone call and the line is dead. How dreadful can that be?
You’ll forget to inform your bank, your magazine subscription, your garbage collection, your school or your post office to redirect everything to your new home.
You won’t have time to bring your pet to the vet. Would you know if your pet is fit to travel? Do you want him to feel sad and forlorn and equally stressed like you in that long plane ride in an unfamiliar kennel in a dark room? What about your plants? Preparing them for moving takes longer than a month. Will they survive the long trip? Did you make sure that your furry and leafy friends are allowed to cross to other states?
How will you fight the pressure of making sure everything goes right with minimal preparation time? Do you have the patience not to scream your lungs out? Or snap at your children or your spouse?
Will you ever have time to clean up your old home to prepare it for the new occupants? Were you able to take off the nasty grime on the tiles or the molds on the ceiling? And the smudge marks on the walls?
