With A Little Help From My Friends

On Saturday a couple of loads of boxes were moved into my new place.  My brother and I got help from my friends.  We packed up two SUVs and some of a van for the first trip with boxes etc from my parent's garage.  Then we went over to the storage unit (after unloading at the new home), and stuffed the 2 SUVs, all of the van, and the bed of a truck.

I really appreciate all the help I got from my friends.

There were these nice towers and walls of boxes in the living room and dining room.  On Sunday, I went over to the house to wait for the installation of the cable/internet.  While I was there I unpacked all of the kitchen boxes.  I also found the boxes that go into my room and took them upstairs.

My parents and my other brother are both flying in tonight.  Greg will go pick them up from the airport. Tomorrow we will pick up a truck we rented and move the rest of our stuff.  The new mattresses also get delivered tomorrow.

Hopefully I will be able to sleep in my new bed, in my new place, Tuesday night.

Of course the next week or so will be all about unpacking and organizing and figuring out what we need to buy/fix.  Plus I need to do some weeding and pruning - especially in the front of the house.

There is a lot of work to be done.  It will be so satisfying when we are settled.


  1. Now the fun begins! Yeah for helpful friends!

  2. I despise moving with a red hot passion, how are you doing it with such an upbeat attitude?!

    If I had been blogging when we moved, the post would be filled with explicatives! :-/

  3. Glad we could help out -- it was fun!
