Tomorrow and Saturday
sigh....its like out of a Don Bluth film I loved so well....the frost may not be off of the ground but moving day is at hand....as Auntie Shrew would have put it "prepare to move your very very odd family".
So tomorrow begins my foray into moving (once again) in the snowy time of the year. When I say snow I mean snow....there are several inches on the ground today and it is still coming down. Weather warnings state that its supposed to snow a lot more tomorrow and Saturday...this is going to be interesting. Luckily Annie's boss and his sons said they would help us run a load over in the U-Haul tomorrow evening and then we're paying a couple of guys to move the rest of it over Saturday morning.
So tomorrow. I took the day off of work so I can get up early and start chucking everything into boxes. It shouldn't be too bad since a lot of my stuff was never unpacked in the first place and is still sitting in the storage shed outside. I'll probably grab all of my clothes from the closet and pull the drawers out of the dresser and drive those over in my car, just so I can put them away immediately. I'll also pull all non-essentials from the bathroom, clear out the hall closet (where I keep my extra bottles of shampoo, the towels, etc) and haul those over as well. The worst of the packing will probably be in boxing up all of my dvds and books....goodness knows I have a lot of both. Of course I'll leave moving the books for the boys because even though I have some medium sized boxes for the job, those boxes won't be light.
It sucks we're in such a small space that there really isn't anywhere to stack up boxes...but then we'll only be dealing with it for a short time, its not as if I will have boxes stacked across the living room for days and days.
The bad part is that I have to drive down tomorrow and get the U-Haul (its in Provo). While I don't mind driving those things I only hope the weather cooperates enough for me to pick it up and bring it back without too much difficulty...the last thing I need is to be in someone else's truck and sliding into other people.
