It's Finally Here! Moving Day... oh wait... never mind...

It's here... moving day.

I am TOTALLY freaking out, stressed beyond belief, scared of this big step, worried about how Ollie and our cat, Professor, will make the transition, so far from packed and ready... But more than anything I am excited! Life is about the journey, not the fear of it...

Should I be sitting here typing away on this big day? No.

Am I procrastinating? Yes.

Is anything packed and ready for the movers? Not really.

Am I proud of this? No.

Is the new house ready? HA! Not even close.

Is Ollie's room ready? CHECK!

Sorry for the glare, more pictures soon.
After realizing restoring his floors would be WAY more than we could do right now, we put a no glue laminate on top until we could get up the nerve to undertake the refinishing .. But the paint and trim look really good!

Are any other rooms ready? Yeah... no.

Is FTD looking at me like, Get up and pack something?  Yep.

OK,  I am going to move now... Wish me luck!

UPDATE!  It's no longer moving day... We hired the national company Two Men And A Truck and After NUMEROUS issues on their end, including a rude mover, they refunded our deposit... I am SO Furious!!!  Ollie's bed is in pieces, his toys are in boxes and we are no longer moving... Buy a house they said... it will be fun they said...

So sorry to hear that. and after all that work on the house, I bet you are ready to move in. Hope you have it all figured out soon.

Congratulations of moving despite the issues. I hate moving companies and vowed I would never use one again. I remember they never wanted to unpack stuff and it was a pain in the butt. I had to force them to unpack and put things together (that's what they were being paid for and they should have been eager to do it).

Me too... I was really looking forward to finally moving

Thanks. I am just sick over it, and to have ALL of our stuff boxed up. The bottom fell out as soon as they showed up for the move. So upsetting. Clearly, they want to do the absolute minimum, but be paid the maximum. I called another service that wanted me to pay $100 for the truck rental! SERIOUSLY? You are a moving service and i have to pay $100 for the truck in addition to the $100 an hour? I never knew it was going to be this much of a hassle.

I moved with an almost 11 month old, not fun! He was using all the boxes to pull himself up and was giving me constant mini heart attacks! But I successfully moved from my tiny 1 bedroom apt to a 3 bedroom house! It's great!!

I used Two Men and a Truck as well. When i was pricing out movers i was so suprised. I had no idea it would be so expensive! And so many companies charge extra fees for such ridiculous things, things that you would assume were in the base price since that is so high!
