I totally relate to what you are going through, we blinked during our move from Miami to Boston and the moving company packed our living Christmas Cactus in a sealed box and trew it in the moving truck. :(Our strategy now is to "hide" and lock it up in the car the things we don't want the movers to pack away... :)Good luck with everything.Ray
I had the opposite problem during my last move. I blinked, I fell asleep even and nothing changed for hours!! It was awful. I had never seen something so slow. And then, when we got here, everything was poorly identified (when identified at all and I am dead serious about this). There were huge boxes with small things tossed in them with lots of space in between. I don't know how half our stuff didn't get here in two pieces (or more). I hate moving.
