Moving Day 1 Completed


Ok, so today the packers got to my apartment at 8:30 a.m.  It was great timing!  They were able to come and start packing ASAP.  The catch is, there were only 2 packers!  I couldn’t believe it!  Like literally couldn’t believe it, after they walked in, I kept holding the door open and they had to tell me I could close the door because no one else was coming.  They were very nice and were working hard.  Something that I didn’t think of was the WIFI.  Packers like listening to music on their headphones while packing and I had already returned my cable boxes and internet a few days ago!  So, I put on my personal hotspot and let them use that to play their music.

They started packing room by room and did a great job.  Around 11 a.m. the packers for our tv’s and vase came.  Yes, the moving companies have to hire separate people for this. They pack these items very carefully.  They left a little before noon.  Around noon the movers were getting hungry, so I ordered a pizza for them and a salad for me.

Around 4, the packers were wrapping up.  There were lots of liquids that weren’t able to be packed by this company.  So they left me boxes so I could pack them and drive them there-back to the crazy car game of how much can we jam in and still see?  So I just finished packing boxes of bathroom soaps, all my candles, any room sprays, light bulbs, kitchen soaps, and laundry and cleaning supplies-phew!

The packers forgot to do a couple things that I found when they left.  They forgot to pack a few of my dishes and they forgot to pack the shower curtain rings.  Oh and by accident they packed one of my zippered boxspring protector!  I had to tear open a box to get my zippered protector out.  The reason I didn’t put it on yet was because my husband and I were planning on sleeping in our apartment for our last night.  But, I got amazing news from my husband today-instead of sitting on our floor all night with no cable, internet, or areas to sit besides our bed, he got us a hotel!  This is so much fun-I get to watch tv!  Also, there is no room for us to stay here.

Now it’s about 5:30 and my husband is home from work and I’m finishing laundry and wiping down the apartment.  Movers will be here at 8 a.m. tomorrow!  I can’t wait to get to the hotel and relax tonight!  What a day!


(excuse the dark pictures-they took our light bulbs out of our lights so we only have lights from our living room and bathroom working)

      The packers and movers are wonderful-it is just stressful watching as all of your things get moved and packed away. It is always a bit daunting to have to check if they movers have broken anything or left anything behind-I find that happens sometimes.

    Oh, so nice you got to stay in a hotel! I remember the last night we stayed at my partner’s house (he was renting it and moving in with me) we slept on the floor. So weird to leave a place you love that has happy memories. Looking forward to reading more of your moving adventure!
