Garner Dodson encourages the weary movers:
As you sit in your new house surrounded by still-packed barrels and unsorted boxes, you may wonder if you'll ever be able to make a home out of this mess. But cheer up--you aren't working against a deadline as you were when you were getting ready to move. You have weeks--even months--ahead of you to make a home. And it helps to keep this thought constantly with you: physical things don't make a home. It's the interest and love of each member of the family for the others that make a home of any shelter. --Making The Most Of Every Move, p. 155.
