Remember, it's okay to have a "dump room" or staging room, just to move stuff in. But make sure you CLEARLY label stuff you need right away. Which will include shower supplies, paper towels, and cleaning stuff. As well as kitchen stuff.
Is this a direct sale (not foreclosure?) We had to wait twenty days to get our keys after closing, so it seems weird (though actually it's more common) to get the keys at closing.
The house is unoccupied and corporation-owned, so it's "quick possession".
If I could, I'd fly back out NEXT weekend and help! Moving sucks; it's always better to have more hands than you could possibly count.
Well, thank you sir!
Yes. Never underestimate the power of vast numbers of willing minions.
I could probably help pack on the 6th. Also, I have between a dozen and a score boxes I haven't gotten around to recycling yet.
Awesome! We would be delighted to reduce your need to recycle boxes by reusing them. When would be convenient for us to get them from you?
I can help. I can. I have plans both Saturday and Sunday evenings, but I can help during the day. My preference is Saturday (I also have church Sunday), but I'll come when you need me. Is Saturday an option? (I can't tell if you need help putting things in boxes or when the storage thing is happening or when the truck gets unloaded and reloaded), but IOU, so I'm up for whatever. Just let me know and I'm in.
Oh, and if you need boxes, we have a mailroom @ work. There are always clean boxes and I can start collecting for you, I just assumed that your need for boxes might expire before I actually saw you.
Gah. So the postcard I sent you yesterday from Germany may not even get there on time? Yikes!
Good luck. I don't have much else to offer, but you have my good toughts.
Er, thoughts. Yeah. That.
If it were this weekend, I potentially could help you move, not that I would have time because I'm only in Denver for two days, one of which will be taken up by interviews and the other with MOUNTAINS! (which I haven't seen in over ten years).
But if there's anything in particular I ought to try to make time to see or do in the brief time I'm going to be there, do let me know.
You should see mountains and whichever school you're visiting. (Though I imaginet that at this point, probably just the latter will count as a victory...)
You are moving on Jerry's b-day? Wow. Okay.
So, I should be able to help on the 7th. The 6th is Zombie night.
Oh! And on the box front: Try maybe the dumpster nearest the CU or FRCC bookstore. I got boxes for my move from ACC's analogous dumpster, and those are the best boxes ever. Small and sturdy, as they are meant for shipping books, they're the perfect size for a box load.
I'm trying to imagine lifting heavy shit at that altitude, and it makes my veins hurt. D:
On the plus side, there's less air resistance while you're carrying them.
Obviously, I can't get there from here, so....
*runs around with arms in the air going "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah"* until out of breath*
There. That's taken care of for you.
Hope you're taking the 8th off to do Driver's Licenses, phones, etc.
Thank you! Very helpful. :)
I'm going to do the utility change-overs next week, and just schedule them in advance. The rest of it can happen later...
I can help Saturday and/or Sunday. Just let me know the details. Goobermunch is, sadly, out of commission for lifting of anything.
Woot! Details shall be forthcoming.
Once we figure them out a bit more...
That's okay. In a few weeks, we'll get you to come help us with the things we still haven't unpacked. ;)
I can certainly help with the Moving Of Things on Sunday the 7th, I have no plans that day. I may even bring additional help. :) Poor upper body strength = not good at moving heavy furniture, but I'll do whatever I can.
Count me in! Being as that Saturday is my birthday, probably Saturday nite is out for me, but I can do the morning, and most of the afternoon. Sunday is totally open.
