Moving Memos. No pictures.

You know how stuff always disappears when you move? As soon as I find the USB cord for my camera I'll do a photo post of our new place.

Memo to self: Two 52 year olds should hire a mover with a big enough truck to move ALL their stuff. Two 52 year olds+40 boxes+second floor apartment=2 cranky, exhausted humans.

Memo to self: Two 52 year olds should hire at least 12 of their daughter's Fratboy Friends to move the boxes. They would probably work for food.

Memo to self: Two 52 year olds who are moving to a new second floor apartment should take at least 4 vacation days from work.

Memo to self: Change the delivery address for the daily newspaper BEFORE you move. The small city paper takes 4 days to process a request if one of those days is a holiday.

Memo to self: Check all the buttons and dials on the clothes washer BEFORE you move in. The dial to turn on the washer is slightly fussy.

Hopefully, my next post will include pictures of "living among the boxes" and "we moved to the Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse".

I'm glad to hear you are successfully moved, even if it required lots of work (yuck).

Happy new home-making to both of you!

You poor guys!!! Hope that you can at least take a break to have a glass or two of wine!!! Might help you relax and will certainly make you sleep better!

I can't remember the last time that I moved myself. I always hire someone to do it. I can hardly lift myself up out of a chair so I know that I wouldn't be able to lift boxes! lol

I'm glad you're in, even if you're not fully settled yet.

Good golly-you moved yourself? You are two brave souls! You are entitled to be cranky then-for days to come. I agree with Gail...have a drink!

You're reminding me of all the reasons I don't EVER want to move again!
