Moving Day: Part 1

What a crazy, long day. The movers, 4 wonderful guys, arrived at the house a little after 8:00 am. Bernie, the driver and his step-son Brent, from Texas, Bul, the Portuguese wonder, from Georgia, and Kerry, the amazing packer, from MN, all showed up ready to work. And work they did!

The boys' room. Just to let you know bunk beds are not fun to take apart by yourself. But, I got 'er done.

Had to take a picture of our tribute to our team the University of North Dakota Fighting Sioux. We painted this a few years ago in the boys' room.

Our bedroom.

The dining room area. Hi, Isabelle.

Storage room.

Ryan's office.

The family room.

Kerry spent the whole day packing the truck. Brent and Bul were the runners who carried the stuff to the truck. Bernie tagged everything.

Getting ready to load the snowmobile. Bul is in shorts. He said, being cold is just a state of mind. Brent is at the front on the snowmobile.


The laundry room after.

The wet bar after. This was never used as a bar. It was my craft area.

The guys left about 8:30 pm. It was such a long day. The guys were amazing. It seems we have a little more stuff than the average bear. Oh well. It all made it on the truck with some clever packing and shoving by Kerry. However, our picnic table which folds up did end up getting strapped to the back.

Now my in-laws and I are off to clean the house. We close Monday morning.

What a long, tough day! It's such a lot of work to pack up an entire house. And you did so much on your own! I'm very impressed. It's hard to leave a home, I hope you and your children enjoy your time with the grandparents and have a smooth move to NY eventually!

did your house sell really fast, or is it just me losing track of time??
