Finally Moved!

I'm finally moved! I turned my keys to the last house into my landlord this morning and it felt great!

These last few days have been a whirlwind. And I could be heard several times saying:

"Remind me to never to do this again."

Yeah, moving is quite a chore. Luckily, I hired movers. And though things turned out well, I was pretty unsure about that when they rolled in. Here's why:

  • Only one of the three of them spoke English. And I only count his English as half. So half a mover spoke English.
  • They rolled up in a rented Budget van. Not the company van. Another red flag.
  • When we left my townhouse to get to the new house, they told me they had to take their break, so they'd meet us an hour later. Immediately, I thought they would be fleeing the state with all my crap. 
  • And last, the "mover in charge" gave me a run down of all the reasons I should tip him (which I did, don't worry.)
But all told, they were fast, packed ALL my crap into one truck, didn't break anything, were on time, and did all their work in 6 hours. All for under $800. I'll take it. 

Now I'm nesting and unpacking. Which I hate just a little less than packing. Once I get my camera back from Nikon, I'll be taking and posting some photos!

This is so bad...but I bought my house in September, and I still have some boxes that I haven't unpacked.

I'm glad that your move went smoothly!!
