I thought moving day was just that. A day to move from one place of residence to another. Well da'gum was I wrong. And not in the good way, like when you open your gas bill in the middle of the winter expeting it be like $400. But when you do open it, you see it is only $245.66. Man, that's the good kind of wrong.
We tried to plan right by preparing the house in May of '13 with pressure washing the deck, new gutters, paint and so on. Then, a ton of packing. Then, move stuff to storage (two locations). Then staging the house so it looked emaculate. And now today we have to be out by 5:00 pm.
We closed on a Friday, and they allowed us until Monday to be moved out. Thst was awesome of them. But we are about to drop.
We moved into an apartment and only plan to stay there for a few mons while we look for another house to call home.
Then we have to start this moving day thing all over again. BUT, we will not be unpacking ANYTHING Saeeet the apartment unless we need it.
That way, in theory at least, all we will have to is load boxes and only pack our clothes, personals, a bowl, a spoon, and the coffee pot.
But we will still have to endure yet one more "Moving Day" that will take the better part of a weekend.
When it's all said and done this will have been the most stressful experience we have gone through. Even though we planned right to pack ahead of time. At the very least, it ranks in the top three.
If you are planning to move soon, plan way ahead so you can pack your stuff right ti make it a not-so-stressful experience.
