Oh My Aching...

Yeah. Oh my aching EVERYTHING! It was a rough weekend. When you move across town you pay by the hour (across the county is weight + miles). So, in order to save a few extra bucks, we are putting as much stuff in the garage as we can get down there between now and Saturday morning at 9:00 am.

I am not in the BEST shape of my life, nor am I in the WORST shape of my life. But if you want a good workout, try this:
Move these:

Down these: (this is the view looking up--great perspective of steepness!)
One box at at time. That is 18 very steep steps down with a heavy box. Then back up 18 steps empty handed. It's the only time EVER when going UP the stairs is easier than going DOWN the stairs!

So far there is only one box that I cannot get into the garage. It's the first box of dishes... mostly the serving pieces. I would bet that I have 5 to 10 boxes to pack and move to the garage. The movers can move the furniture!

Only 5 more sleeps! Oh, and one of them will be in Minneapolis, MN! Gotta love my job and the impeccable timing of business trips!

  1. A perfect posting on the downside of moving. It will be worth it! Remember, the unloading of the boxes will be just as much work but A LOT more fun. I am looking forward to pics of your new place with your touches.
