Day 99: Final Punch List and Moving Day 1

So the fun has begun.  We loaded the 26' truck we rented today.  We were thinking we weren't going to need this big of a truck and figured we would have some room left over.  We were going to just load boxes and small furniture in it and have the movers get all the big stuff.  Well that plan didn't work.  1.5 hours in, we still had boxes to load and the truck was over half full.  It became clear that we were not going to have room for much furniture.  We usually rent Budget trucks and their 24' truck is bigger than U-Haul's 26'.

So it looks like we are going to have to make a second trip, so we cancelled the movers and are just going to get everything in the next trip.  That fun will be tomorrow after closing.  For now, I need a long shower, a nap and lots of Motrin.

We stopped by the house and the punch out guy was there diligently working off discrepancies.  The electricians were in and finished their job.  The cleaners will be in tomorrow morning, just in time for us to move in.  GE wasn't out there today to look at the dishwasher, so hopefully they will get there early tomorrow.

Hold on, here we go!!!

1.5 Hours in and half full...we are in trouble.

4 Hours later and not much room for anything else.


  1. Yes...very and exhausting all at the same time.

  2. So neat to see the moving truck its getting so close now good luck tomorrow!

  3. Thanks everyone. Seeing how we are in mission mode, it's difficult to stop and appreciate what we are doing. I think some time next week, it's going to hit us.

  4. Wheewww! Moving is a beast, but this move is OH SO WORTH IT!

  5. I really love this part, I know its painful but it is very exciting. And you'll remember this experience for a long time! :-)
    Good Luck!!!
