World's Most Unorganized Moving Day

Tuesday, May 19, 2015

Sorry for the radio silence y'all! It's been one heck of a long weekend.

I'm happy to say we survived the world's most unorganized moving day. And if you don't believe me, take a look at this.

We opted to go the cheapest route possible for this move, meaning no moving companies and minimal boxes. (Because who wants to buy boxes? We used some from my husband's office). And in case you're wondering... yes, we did pack, unpack, and repack boxes several times throughout the weekend.


That's right. Absolutely no preparations were made before the big day.

If there is one thing about moving, its that you learn how much shit you accumulate over the years and proceed to put much more in the trash rather than let it take up valuable box space.

If it weren't for my parents and my cousin who came to help, it would have been a week-long event. Or the friends who offered to help would have sprinted in the opposite direction.

Even just having Grandma around to keep Rowan occupied was indispensable.

We took a break from the moving madness on Sunday to enjoy the hot weather by the water. R slept through everything, including the mad dash around Trader Joe's for two buck Chuck (they can't sell alcohol at TJ's where my parents live) and speculoos cookies.



It's safe to say I'm exhausted beyond belief and our house is barely liveable at this point. It makes my type-A self cringe just looking around. But we're so excited to get settled in! I'm hoping once my office is fully set up I'll have a lot more regular blog posts, so thanks for hanging in there with me in the meantime!

  1. Congrats on the house! Moving is so stressful, and it is one thing I absolutely despise. Can't wait to see how the house comes together! Hang in there!

  3. Caitie, let go of that typeA. Move to B. One room at a time. At least the beds were up and you can find the pots and dishes! Take your time and don't stress! It certainly is not going anywhere!

  7. I hate moving. It was a trial moving from a dorm to a house a few years back, who knew in my short 20 years (at the time) that I could accumulate more stuff than my grandma! Can't wait to see the new place.
