Moving Van Day

We had moved many car & pickup truck loads over to the Yadkin House.  Cleaned out a storage unit and a half that way.  But hadn't gotten a moving truck until yesterday.  I reserved a Budget 16' because you have to get at least a 16' in order to get the lift gate rather than the ramp.  We needed the lift gate for the piano and other heavy pieces.  However, when we went to get the Budget truck, they had given away my reserved lift gate truck.  I could probably get one around 4 pm, she said, maybe earlier.  My moving helpers were already on their way to the old house though; I couldn't wait.  Frustration.  So we drove over to U-Haul and rented a 14' truck with a ramp.  Therefore, we didn't get some things moved that we had planned.  The best-laid plans....   Here's a picture of me resting my back in the new house's sunroom.
Altogether, we think we've got between 1/3 and 1/2 of everything into the new house & yard now.  There's still 1/2 of the second storage unit to go, 2 out of the 3 bedrooms, and the heavy pieces downstairs.  But we'll get there; we are getting there!  TheBoys and my very favorite daughter came to help us.  She helped me figure out furniture placements and paint colors, and she kept a steady upbeat attitude towards everything.  It's always great to have her around.  It sounds like she may be back again next month and that'd be good timing.  TheBoys were indispensable as always and cheerful also.  That sure does make a difference on a busy day!  We'll continue the car & pickup truck moving a little longer and then get professional movers to finish it all up.  Even though this is the hard part, it's also a good part because it's nice to see our things coming over and filling up the Yadkin House.  It's fun to have a place to put things that had to be in storage before this.  It's nice to see all the plants have enough room and enough sun.  Life is good!
