I mentioned in the last post that we were getting ready to move into a smaller apartment this holiday weekend and, for the last three days, that’s what we’ve been working on. Friday was largely eaten up by the the laundry rental guys showing up to move the washer and dryer we rent over to the new apartment and the AT&T U-Verse installer who was hooking up our new service, but we did get some boxes moved that day. My buddies JethricOne, Andy, and Bob came out to help by getting all the big, heavy furniture moved on Saturday. And yesterday my in-laws were out to help move all the rest of the crap we had.
By the end of the day yesterday we had at least 95% of everything moved and my legs were totally useless. My knees were bothering me something fierce, but it was the calf muscles that were the real problem. If I needed a reminder of why I need to exercise then yesterday served that function well. My in-laws will be back out later this morning to help get that last 5% moved over and then we’ll do a quick cleaning of the apartment and turn in the keys tomorrow.
One thing is for sure, I’m going to make the time to go through a lot of the stuff I have and see if I can’t reduce and simplify a bit. Of course I say that every time I move and realize just how much crap I actually have tucked away in boxes and stuff, but I’m going to do my best to actually follow through on that this time. Wish me luck!
