It’s happening.

30 Apr

Two red semis and four men rolled up to the parsonage yesterday morning and got to work. Boxing, taping, wrapping, packing, moving. As of today, we live in a sea of boxes and gathered furniture. (Top right photo is our dining room!)

It’s crazy how quickly they got things packed up and well on their way. Tony, Eric, Josh, and Matt (We’re friends now. After someone packs your every – EVERY – belonging, I suppose you do grow on a deeper level. We bought them pizza for lunch because we’re friends … and to slightly bribe them into taking good care of our things.) are hoping to knock this four day job out in three. That means tonight, Emmett and I are on an air mattress in the living room and on our way to Wisconsin as soon as everything is loaded tomorrow. (Dave heads back this afternoon and to work tomorrow.)

We’ll see our moving crew again on Monday when they unload our every belonging (and 38 pinball machines) into our new home. I learned yesterday that, as a part of the package Dave’s company ordered for us, they will also UNPACK our belongings. We’re not sure we’ll take them up on that completely (and Matt said they love it when the customers don’t) but, sure, we’ll cash in the offer to set up a couple beds and unpack a couple wardrobes.

Deep breath. Let the sea of boxes (and furniture. and pinball machines.) meet us in Wisconsin.
