The last few weeks have been a whirlwind. First it was the waiting and not knowing what we wanted to set aside so the movers wouldn’t pack it. Then it was the utter chaos of having our house in complete disarray. Next came the packers… and so our move is officially underway.
Our pack-out started and with it came all the boxes, packing tape, and packing paper. Bringing all these things into our house were three guys. They moved rather quickly which is good, and bad. Good because our, scheduled, two-day pack out won’t turn into a three or four-day pack-out. Bad because it always worries me that they’re rushing to get things done and not making sure they’re taking good care to pack my precious stuff well.
After about 45 minutes of work (they didn’t arrive until around 10:45 AM), the movers took their lunch.

The first day of our pack-out ended at around 4:30 PM. Our second day of boxes, packing tape and packing paper began at about 9:45 AM. Only two of the three movers returned for the second day. It went rather quickly, again. We decided to grill burgers and dogs for lunch. The funny thing about this whole pack-out… our friends & neighbors across the street from us were also doing their pack-out. They have kids and much more stuff then us so their pack-out was scheduled for three days. I’m soooo glad ours was only two. I don’t know what I’d do if it was three whole days.
Now I sit on loaner furniture, that is oh-so-uncomfortable. We’ll be here in an empty house for about three weeks and then we’ll be at the Westin for about 5 days and then its to the air we go.
Oh how I hope our stuff arrives intact…
