I am swamped. BUT I AM HAPPY. REALLY, REALLY HAPPY. I love the house. Slowly every day it’s becoming exactly the home I dreamed for our family.
The move happened on Saturday. I wasn’t really ready for it….mentally yes I was ready. Actually ready with everything packed. NOPE…Not ready. The majority of the packing that I had done was done on the main floor. I had boxes lining all the rooms. I figured that those would get loaded up first and I along with Kelli would frantically pack rest of the upstairs. Hubby had a different plan. Everything that would be going in the upstairs of the new house had to be moved first. UGH. That meant everything that wasn’t packed needed to be packed ASAP.
The stairs at the new house are narrow and they have a turn. The majority of our things would never make it. We knew that and have purposely designed the addition to accommodate that. It ended up working something like this.
A friend of ours has a tele-handler. It’s more or less a fancy fork lift. They would load the deck of it with things that needed to go upstairs.
They would raise the deck up to the upper door….
Then open the door and carry it all in.
That big toilet box is FULL of quilts coming in to make their home in the new sewing room.
The reason Hubby changed things up for me and said we needed to move the upstairs things first is because we had beautiful weather on Saturday and the yard wasn’t frozen. As the temperatures rose the frost left the ground and our yard became a totally muddy mess. I am so thankful that he realized that would happen and had us move that stuff in the morning.
After a long day we ended up at the local bar for supper.
This isn’t the entire group of people who helped. Our neighbor and Hubby’s boss helped earlier in the day too. We had house warming presents for neighbors and friend too. We are so blessed to have them all in our life.
It was a LONG day and very fun evening. We can’t thank our friends and neighbors enough. Moving just plain stinks. It’s never a fun task but this group made it all bearable. Thanks to all you blog readers for your well wishes and prayers for good weather.
I am deep in boxes…but really, really happy!!
