Moving Day!

Noah and I are moving into our new apartment today!

If I make it back for Beautiful You, it means my internet actually got setup, the power got turned on, I didn’t get crushed by a couch, and I didn’t curse so much that they threw me in jail for disturbing the peace.

It also would mean that I didn’t go all crazy OCD and burn through a Costco size carton of 5-Hour Energies trying to unpack the house before the neighbors can even bring me cookies.

If I know me at all, everything I mentioned above will happen. And then some.

Wish me luck. You all know how fun moving day can be.

PS. Hint, hint, new neighbors.

Good luck with your moving day! Mine will be coming soon, too....and I'm not even close to being ready for it.

I'm with you. It was fun to watch our dog "explore" everything but let me say that I wasn't impressed when he wined at 1:30 am (after being asleep for a couple of hours) just to go "mark his territory". The dog went right back to sleep, but I became wide awake.

I can't help thinking how awesome it would be to discover you were my new neighbour! but you're not moving to the UK are you, lol. Just moved myself and am now settling in nicely, so good luck and enjoy your new home.

Well, I have fortunately reached the stage in life where I can afford to and will hire movers.  EXCEPT, my college-aged son is pretty mobile and he has moved a bunch.  Fortunately, he has buddies, big burly ones such as himself.  I don't have to heft couches and beds to help him, but I do clean, rent trucks and buy food.  Lots of food for said buddies, now that they are of age, beer too.

I hate moving.  I've had some rough experiences with life in the last few years so sadly I don't have much to move anymore.  But at one time, we had to move a queen sized bed, a washer & a dryer, two couches, five bookcases (hey, a girl needs her priorities...and mine was books), and a massive oak entertainment center.  Up three flights of stairs.  A year later, we moved all that crap back DOWN those three flights of stairs.  Neither my husband nor I could move for a week after those excursions.  So good luck to you and to Noah with your new home!

I wish you luck, Dan!!! I feel like moving day here, too.... we have five kids and are reassigning bedrooms, moving a huge shelving unit out of our living room into one boy's room, and needing to find places for all the stuff that formerly lived on the shelves. My house is a wreck and my OCD is going NUTS. Keep hydrated (especially if pounding energy drinks!!!!), don't forget to take breaks to eat and have FUN, and set up the beds last - there's nothing more fun for a child on moving night than camping out on mattresses with Dad , especially if there's some sort of moving box fort involved!

That's one bonus for moving as a military family, they do all the heavy lifting themselves, you just sit back and have to unpack it all, but no carrying couches upstairs!

You forgot to mention what kind of cookies you do not want the neighbors to bring too soon :-)

Good luck with your move as I'm doing my own this weekend as well.
