Today is the big moving day; the movers should be here in about 10, but I wanted to share a couple quick moving tips from the pros:
- Don't move in spring in Colorado. And if your moving week happens to be packed with 70-degree days, don't make note of it. If you do, the two days of your move will be 30 degrees and snowing.
- The absolute last things you should pack are the first-aid kit and the plunger. Pack them too soon and the gods will take note and punish your hubris.
- Send the kids to grandma's for as much of the move as possible. Amount of time in our first house before the first sibling-inflicted injury (and subsequent high-decibel timeout: approximately 50 minutes). The kids are now at Grandma's, and I think it's safe to say everyone is happier and safer.
Okay, back to moving. Wish us luck! I'll share some photos soon.
