Default We Made It!!

Well we made it into the new house! We had settlement/closing on Thrusday last week (9/13) and the movers came on Friday (9/14). We went back to the old house a few times over the weekend to get things but for the most part we are moved. Now if we could just get rid of all these dang boxes!! LOL

I understand about the boxes. When we moved at the end of May, we had a lot of boxes and some bubble wrap left so we gave them to a neighbor who is also moving. Now that we're in the new place, we have lots of empty boxes which my husband has gleefully decided to keep in the attic, because "you never know when you might need a box!"

LOL!! We have all of our empty boxes in the garage so far. Most of them have to go back to my husbands job so they wont be hanging out with us. On the other hand my husband is good for the "You never know what might come up..." as well!!

Sounds like a pretty good move Kater, especially if you've already emptied all the boxes! Hope you enjoy your new home!

We've unpacked most of the upstairs but the downstairs still looks pretty much like a disaster area!! LOL

Well, as long as you have a place to sleep and a place to read the rest can be worked in as you feel like it.

Wow -- moved in that quickly?? It took us at least three months to get things unpacked and put away when we moved -- 6 years ago.

Of course the fact that we had three young children didn't help. Parker was not quite 2, Rowan was 4, and Kaitlyn was 6. At the time I swore I would NEVER again move with young children. Of course that is axiomatic since I was finished having children. Now they're 12, 10, and 8, but I don't know how much better it would be trying to move now...

*Nods* I've never moved with little kids myself. I did find our move to be not too terrible. Our "kids" were in their early twenties - young enough to still be "around" (and have lots of able bodied friends) and old enough for us to boss them "Around"!

Anneli, we made a lot of the arraingments ahead of time so the work was done before we moved in. All that was required was for them to come out and wire into the house.
