It was a good two or three weeks before anyone else moved into the building. We had once again rented a truck - this time a refrigerated truck because Ryder ran out of regular trucks - and bugged Elijah and Diana to help us out and managed to get everything moved in one afternoon. This time, we promised ourselves that we would unpack everything that first weekend and not have boxes all around us for the first three months. And so it was done.
With this move came losing a garage for storage which meant we couldn't be pack-rats and have four storage bins of stuff. Part of the unpacking meant consolidating. And so four 54-gallon tubs turned into one, with the excess meeting the trash or the Goodwill donation bin.
Who knows how long we'll stay at this place - knowing us we'll start itching to move next year, but do we really want to deal with moving around the holidays again?? Doubtful. Will we most likely be hiring movers the next time? Yes - we've done our share of moving. In the meantime we have really enjoyed our new townhouse and have lucked out with some great neighbors moving into our building. Looks like a fun year ahead in our new place!
