The move

laelene Post in lifestyle glimpses, photo blog,Tags: , , , ,

We finally did it! Panda booked two guys and a truck for today and we got almost everything moved out. There are some stray kitchenware and toiletry items we kept but pretty much everything else is all packed up and moved over. It took a little longer than the two hours we estimated (2.5 total, almost down to the minute), but it felt like quite a bit longer. That was probably due to the prep work we did beforehand and then all the setting up and unpacking afterward. I’m glad that it barely snowed today, so we had pretty decent moving conditions.

It feels great to be moved in, even though there’s plenty of unpacking to be done. At least it’s a chance to reorganize. I’m taking it slow and making sure everything goes in a designated place. It’s also a chance for me clean off some of the things that needed a wiping after some time. While we were moving in, we met some other neighbors who are also Chinese and got a chance to connect with our downstairs neighbor again. It’s going to be fun living here.

Have we even prepped this room? Can’t tell.

Whoa, that’s how they get all our crazy heavy stuff out.

Thank goodness they came with all the materials to pad the move.

We definitely didn’t need a truck so large.

That’s all our stuff, ready to head out.

Panda did a great job covering the stairs to protect the carpet.

Pathways to every part of the place we’d want access to.

Moving through the garage was pretty convenient.
