Moving Day, the Recap
Well, the move...is done...and boy are we tired. Our move morning started at 6:15AM that Saturday, sleeping out on the floor in the new place (just for fun), when my phone ringing woke us up. Apartment Movers wants to know if they can come early. How early? 'Now.'
So up we jump, race back to the old place to get the last couple things done before the guys get there. About this time is when we realize that I'm beginning to get sick. Jenni goes to Sonic for much needed sustainance (breakfast burrito and Dr. Pepper--what else?), and soon Javier and the other guy whose name we never learned show up, to move the heavy stuff. It didn't take them too long to get it all loaded up, and they offered to take a couple of other items that they hadn't planned on ('...and you can just give us a tip...'), which seemed like a good deal to me. So by around 9:00 or so we were in the car on the way downtown to our new place...
...which was right when the piano movers called to say they were almost to the house (the old place) to pick up the 1600 lb. piano. Nice--I don't hear from them in 10 days and then they 'call to confirm' right at the wrong time.
This is the view out our new bedroom window the day of our move.
Our movers were both great, very careful, quite patient with two of our three elevators busted and un-useable, and we would highly recommend Apartment Movers.
With the paid help gone, in came Brannon, Brad and Wayne to help us out with the rest.
See how hard they work:
...they were so focused and serious in their work, and man, they didn't waste time:
...Brannon doing heavy lifting:
After all that hard work, it was time to play some basketball...at Chipotle...with uh, garbage...
...yeah, they all missed. IT'S A GARBAGE CAN, GUYS, FROM 8 FEET!!! HOW CAN YOU MISS?!!
With everything unloaded, our bellies full, and our last bit of strength gone, time to check out the disaster zone:
