Like really exhausting. I thought it would be really simple. Put stuff in a box and move it. In all honesty that is the most complicated part of all of moving. Finding a place took time, but wasn't really difficult. Coming up with the money was nothing when me and Sexy nerd put our finances together. Packing up two different houses and moving them up three flights of stairs was crazy!
Luckily we had the help of four of our close friends that lovingly donated their time and muscles to helping us drag all of our belongings up three flights of stairs at 8 in the morning. I really can't stress enough how amazing of friends we really have.
What I Will Do Different Next Time:
- Label everything- We couldn't find anything once we got ready to unpack. I thought I was putting things together appropriately in boxes, but I lost so many things and even now I don't know where everything is and all the boxes are unpacked!
- Have a detailed to-do list for the month leading up to the move- I started my list way to late in the move. I should have been writing everything down and knew what I wanted to get done. This would have saved me having to rent a U-Haul the day before we were moving!
- Get rid of anything I don't need or haven't used in a while- Although I have 18 different throws doesn't mean I need to take them all. Moving give you the perfect opportunity to slim down your possessions. I know I wish I would have more than I did.
- Take a Breath- Even though it is a huge endeavor I think I will try to enjoy it more next time. I was so worked up and had forgotten to take my happy medicine that I stressed all day and was not in a really great mood. I would have been in such a better mood had a taken a second to breath and enjoys the moments and memories I was making with Sexy Nerd and my friends.
So that's all folks. I am so very glad it is done and we are all moved in. I have to say it was totally worth it and we both love our new place and the babies are settling in as well. Moving is always difficult both physically and mentally. I think being able to start in a new place of our own has really been awesome. I excited for all the new experiences we will have in our new little space!
So hugs and kisses lovelies! I hope you all have had an amazing Memorial Day.
