Still moving

April 18th, 2011 at 04:03 am

I clearly remember why I hate moving! It is sooooo much work. We moved all the big stuff Friday. We moved boxes, bins and bags over slowly for two weeks prior. Today, I moved the cats, as well as another carload of odds and ends over. And there is still more!

How did we acquire sooooo much stuff?

I really am nostalgic for the days when everything I owned fit into the back of my hatchback. Moving was easy then. Who needed a sofa anyway?

On a positive note, the thrift store boxes are piling up. As we open every box, we are sorting. We've got at least two more large boxes for Goodwill, and we haven't even scratched the surface.

I also finally got the washer dryer hooked up. It was an ordeal, as I had to rewire the dryer from a 3-prong to a 4-prong cord ( I was dreading it, but it was easier than I thought.), replace the existing dryer venting, because it was a linty-fire hazard, and install new washer supply lines. Also, the washer drains into an old cement sink. I've never seen this before, and I'm not super comfortable with it. Next time the plumber comes by, I'll just ask him to double check it for me.

Laundry is great. One more level of function! We are living in limbo still, as we still have so much to put away.

    It's been a Herculean task to just unpack boxes with the kiddies afoot. I have to hand it to hubby, though. He's been working so hard. We've both been staying up late, working hard all day to get things done. I hope to have this place mostly unpacked this week, then to go clean the other house on Saturday, in prep for a big designed to sell weekend following Easter.
