Pack. Move. Unpack: Tanktimus Relocates Forum Headquarters


Recommended Posts

giphy.gif

As the title and the tags indicate, we are now homeowners! Closing will be on Thursday, June 27th. Week 1 of the challenge will be finalizing packing and getting some things set up at the new place (buying a fridge [probably from the scratch and dent place], installing blinds, putting Toilet paper and hand soap in all the bathrooms). Week 2 I am taking off from work for the move. July 8th, moving day, will also be our 2nd Wedding Anniversary. Tell the truth, how many of you got a house for an Anniversary present? We are hiring movers because we are too old and make too much money to ask our friends for help. The rest of that week will be unpacking and setting things up, as well as cleaning the old apartment and turning in the keys. Weeks 3 and four will be continuing to unpack and filling out myriad change of address forms.

At some point, we will be eating and I will hopefully get some workouts in.

Thank you!

You’re never too old to help people move. The post-move pizza and beer is the best pizza and beer.

I didn't say I was too old to help people move. I just don't want people to help me move. This is not because I have a hard time asking for help. This is because if I pay people to move my stuff I don't have to help. I agree the post move beer and pizza is great, but not when I'm the one who's being moved.

I had been thinking of writing something along the lines of what Sloth wrote...but now I see that you have some very good points!

Yes, the last two moves I hired movers. It was heavenly. That's why I'm hiring them again. It's actually the same people.

You’re darn tootin’! ;) 

But....last time we moved, and had friends help, I found out one was a recovering alcoholic.  After I bought the beer. Oops.  Luckily I found out before I offered  it up.

 

Hai Tank!  Exciting times await you.  New home, new baby.  All the feels. Following along.

Happy moving! I love the line that you’re too old to have friends help you move! There’s this satisfying “oh yeah, I’m awesome” checkpoint in life when you hire someone to move all the stuff. Then you can invite all your friends for pizza and beer after and relish in the not lifting a giant bed up the stairs. 

 

Congratulations, friend!

My husband and I have decided that our next move, we will definitely hire movers for reasons similar. We were gifted some solid oak bedroom furniture and moving it into our current house was enough for us to nope out of that ever again. 

 

Also, I love packing and unpacking. So if you need any help!

Yes, at a certain age some of us reach the point where we've realized we have nothing to prove and let younger people do things for money. And our Mattress is VERY heavy.

We are excited at the prospect of not having to move again, at least not for a long time.

If you want to burn some frequent flyer miles to come down and help us put things in boxes I'm sure we can come to an arrangement. We have, however, already dismantled the guest room, so you'd be crashing on a couch.
