Do you see the moving boxes at this photo? This photo was taken more than four years ago when we are about to move back here in the mainland from South Korea. Our neighbor have relocated one week before us so the duplex house that we were both living was vacant after we left.
The military was the one who assigned the movers that would move all our household stuff. There's an advantage and disadvantage of being assigned a mover. An advantage because you don't have to deal with it yourself but disadvantage because you can't really screen the movers. A perfect example was when we were moving going to South Korea, we have stuff that got broken but the company denied our claim when we filed it. We can't do anything but to accept the fact that it got broken.
We got lucky with the company that the military hired when we were moving back here, the Koreans were pretty nice. They even let us put some more stuff over our weight limit. The great thing was nothing got broken with our stuff so we were very happy.
Moving is such an exciting and at the same time stressful process for the family. I am so glad that we are done moving for now especially that our children are in school. My husband's retirement was a perfect timing for us to stay here but if circumstances will require us to move again, I wouldn't mind at all. I love exploring different places so it's okay with me.
