After receiving the generous offer of help from our parents of free basement storage, we were ready to go! One Penske moving truck was lined up and we were ready to go!
Follow the jump for the rest of the story and more pictures...
Sara was to pick up the truck at noon on a Friday and get a little head start on loading. When I got home from work, I was to help her finish up the loading so we could get an early start on Saturday. Her loading job was made easier by her system of labeling and organizing all of the boxes, tubs, and furniture.
It made the job so quick, in fact, that she had the whole job done before I could get home! She worked hard all afternoon, make no mistake, but it ended up being a three-hour job for one person. The only things she needed help with were the chunky pieces of furniture like those below.
With the concerted efforts of family and neighbors, we got everything stashed away safely for a long rest in basements. It is a little painful knowing we won't see some of our treasured possessions for a long time, but nice to know they are all in a good place. We are so busy right now as to not even have time to think about material comforts, so camping out at home is really no big deal.
