apparently be about a grand poorer for paying a moving company. this move is only taking us 3 blocks from our old place. between the short distance, the lack of parking for moving trucks, and the lack of big things that require a moving truck, we decided that we could do it on our own. as in the two of us, volunteers, and a yaris. you saw yesterday's post, right? we can fit in it as many things as an SUV...
a few things won't fit in the car though. the mattress is one of them. hung decided to take the task on himself. i helped him get it down the stairs, but he turtled the whole thing by himself, all the way to the new house. can you imagine if you saw this scene while walking down a rather busy city street!?
he's a beast!!!
while we saved a few bucks moving everything without a moving company, it did bring some chuckles along the way too. like last night when our friend and i accidentally left hung in the back of the yaris as we were about to walk inside the old house. he was NOT happy about that one! sorry babes... (but it really was funny! if we weren't so stressed about moving you would have been laughing too)
we're almost there. almost done moving. no more big things for the boys with big muscles to move. and just one more night of moving and cleaning and moving and cleaning until we can hand over the keys to the next tenants. ....and hopefully tonight is also install-the-shower-curtain night too so i don't have to take a bath in the sink again... yeah. real showers are nice...
