The move is complete!

January 17th, 2016 at 05:16 am

Fortunately the move went off without a hitch. It was actually the best move experience I've had yet. One move that I remember not fondly was the one that I had to manage by myself bc my then husband was still overseas. One of the movers was trying to flirt with me the entire day, and gave me his phone number when he left, very creepy. I was scared to go to sleep that night. Another move I had to listen to the movers whine and complain because I had "too much stuff". Yeah, that is why I was paying movers to move it.

I found that these movers were quick and professional, and the final payment was fair and close to the estimate. I will write them a good review for sure. The truck was unpacked by the time the kids arrived home from school.

The first night in her room was pretty overwhelming for my oldest daughter. She has ADD and the sight of all of those boxes to unpack, she just didn't know where to start. I helped her get started, though, and now her room is looking more like her room.

Today I will be able to cook meals and try to get back to normal: cooking, laundry, studying, the gym. DW has been here for the move, helping to unpack. Organizing and getting stuff done is a strong point of hers, and it comes in handy when moving. The tension between us has dissipated so we can get stuff done. I still don't know what I want for us in the future, so the space and time alone will be helpful for me, for us both.

    Yay. Hope you can settle in quickly. I feel for your daughter; my son has anxiety which can be a real obstacle to productivity. I've managed to find my "calm pants" many times. Funny that I can be the voice of reason with/for everyone except myself!

    Glad the move went well. It makes me nervous having to think about using professional movers when I move...I've heard so many bad things about how they basically hold your stuff hostage while demanding a great deal more money from you, purportedly becus it weighs so much more than estimate....yikes.

    But i figure if you pay with a credit card, you have some protection there becus if a dispute later develops, you can hold payment by calling the credit card issuer.

    Glad to hear the move went well. Give yourself plenty of time to figure out your marriage. There's no hurry. One day at a time. Smile

    Happy the move went well and hope you are able to re-settle quickly. It helps to label shelves, drawers and cabinets [post-it-note tabs] until everyone knows where to find stuff.
