Gearing Up

Tomorrow morning, my new lease begins. I'm going to go to the bank and pick up the rent check, then go to the real estate office to pick up the keys, and then go over to the new place to check it out. Then I call some friends who have a truck at the moment, and we'll start the Official Apartment Colonization Process. This will pretty much involve moving the small furniture and as many boxes as I can deal with before I start whining. Things Will Be Set In Motion.

Deep breath . . .

So far, so good. Small furniture and lots of heavy boxes have been moved. Some of the boxes have even been unpacked!

Moving stinks but you are definitely doing it the right way. Nice and slow. Be careful and enjoy your new apartment!

I did the Horrible Bit today with the help of some friends. That involved schlepping the small furniture and a lot of heavy boxes (many of them containing books) down three flights of stairs, which of course involved lots of climbing three flights of stairs. The friends had a truck, so we trucked the whole kit and caboodle over to Apartment B and carried it inside. The rest can go at its own pace until a week from today, when the Large Men come to take the Large Furniture. And then I have yet another week to make sure that everything is schlepped, cleaned, and in order.

Go FP!

I'd be whining at the very thought of it.

Feeling a bit sore right now, I have to admit. But the small furniture and lots of heavy boxes are safe and sound in Apartment B, thanks to friends who have a great work ethic and, temporarily, a truck. Tomorrow, I'm going over to their place at eight to help them re-load the truck for the move that they're doing.

Basically, we're trading moving help. The Moving Fairy is working in a tight little circle this time.
