I finally feel like I am married. Woohoo. Living together makes all the difference. I miss my Malachi, but I am still unpacking, organizing, etc. Grrrrr. Moving is not my favorite thing to do. Just sayin’. I miss my family, too, but at least I get to see Macey + Chad for their engagement shoot […]0
I finally feel like I am married. Woohoo. Living together makes all the difference. I miss my Malachi, but I am still unpacking, organizing, etc. Grrrrr. Moving is not my favorite thing to do. Just sayin’.
I miss my family, too, but at least I get to see Macey + Chad for their engagement shoot this weekend (and bringing my kid to me)!
So, what all this amounts to is that I have compiled a list for you. Because everyone loves lists. Even when the list is not cohesive at all. Like this one.
1. Altercation with walmart employee over 97 cent price difference. So worth it.
2. You will need a toolkit when moving. If you don’t have one, buy one. Keep it with you at all times. And by all means, do not pack it in a box. Even accidentally. Of course, if it was accidental, then it would be unavoidable (thus the accident), but still. Make it a point to not pack it into a box, because the box that your all-powerful tool kit is packed in (whether accidentally or not) WILL be the last box you unpack.
So, strap it to your person. Heck, ladies, stick it in your purse (you know your purse is big enough to fit it). Oh, and on that note, make sure you don’t pack your purse into a box. Keep it with you. Especially if a male is doing the packing.
3. Make sure your toolkit includes a flathead screwdriver. And a Phillips head screwdriver. Oh, and some guy named Allen aparrently saw the need for yet another screwdriver. So get one of those too. Believe me, you will need it.
4. I hate boxes, as necessary and, at times, useful as they are (like when moving all of your wordly possessions from one city to another). My mother-in-law suggested that we go to The Container Store while we were out grabbing food the first night here. “What do they sell?” I asked, cringing in anticipation of the response. Boxes. I screamed in terror (internally, anyway).
5. If a bookshelf (or two, in my case) is leaning because the dumb apartment carpet installation technicians did a lousy job, you can use cardboard ripped from one of those god-awful boxes (reference the above “at times useful” under #4) to prop one side up and level it with. This is meant as a temporary measure. Yeah right.
So, I only managed to grab a few shots of all the commotion (due to the, well, commotion of it all).
My lovely parents-in-law and Brock take a break while waiting for the movers to get there. They were late. Very late.
Brock is manly. He put together my bookcase. Yay manly man.
Why yes, I do have a bit of redneck hiding underneath all this awesomeness. Harold and I definitely duct taped the mirror onto the dresser for lack of screws. Ingenious. Really, we are.
