Monday was our big moving day. We wanted to move while our son was in school. Monday was a big day for us because we were having the internet turned on and we had to rent the U-Haul.
We had to be at our apartment between 9am and 10am to meet the Time Warner guy. While we were waiting, my husband had to walk over to the U-Haul place (thankfully it was less than a mile away) while I waited for the cable guy to show. We had to pick up the U-Haul at 10am, so he left around 9:45am. The cable guy arrived around 10:15am and was done within 10 to 15 minutes.
By the time my husband came back, we quickly left for our old apartment to start moving. Our goal was to be done by at least 12:30 at the latest. We had to pick up our son from the bus stop around 2:40pm or so.
After lifting and carrying the couch from our apartment to the truck, I was dripping with sweat! Our weather was very humid that day. Thankfully it wasn’t hot, just overcast and moist! I also helped move our mattress (we have a Tempur-Pedic) and that is not a lightweight mattress! I also helped lift our table and chairs, and many other items. My husband did a lot of extra heavy lifting. After the heavy lifting, I told my husband that we are hiring movers the next time we move.
We signed a two year lease, so we won’t be moving for at least two years. I highly recommend hiring movers or at least ask friends and family to help. We have neither option, so we would have to hire movers.
We ended up moving out all of our furniture in about an hour! I was very surprised about that. We unloaded all of our things in less than an hour.
The next day, we were both so tired and sore!
