The move is almost done....
Last Sunday I rented a truck and got the majority of things moved..My helpers?? Jeremy and my grandson Patrick--(AKA..JJ).
I am tooooo old to be doing that type of work. lol...Due to financial reasons, I had canceled my movers.. It wasn't too bad until we got to my bedroom set and the couch.
First we took the headboard..It's huge..All wood, and very awkward to carry. I was a little worried about one of us dropping our end..but we made it.
Then came the couch..which is way heavier than a normal couch because it has recliners on each end...I wasn't sure we would be able to make it up the ramp on the truck..

Then came the unloading...all went well of course until we got to the headboard and couch.
The couch being the last and the worst...We managed to get the couch off the truck and then I think we all just ran out of steam..
I finally told them to lay the couch on it's back and PUSH...we must have looked like a bunch of crazy people..lol...trying to push the couch up the sidewalk..lol..
We got thru the doorway and then had to turn it on it's side to wiggle it into my front door..But WE DID IT....

I was so glad that we decided not to try to take my dresser. There is no way we had any more energy to try to do that.
So, needless to say, that is still at the house. I have to line up movers this coming week to have it moved.
I had hoped to be completely out of the house as soon as possible in hopes that they could rent it out for the 15th and I could get back that extra half of months rent..no such luck yet.

It has been very hard downsizing..I have six small boxes sitting here with things in them that I don't know where to go with.
I don't have my entertainment center anymore and that held many of these items..

Oh well, it will all come together.. I have most things fairly organized.

It has taken me a lot longer to get settled than it normally does. lol..I thing being older has slowed me down some..And then this last week at work certainly didn't help...It has been crazy.

I had to fire one guy. One guy was a no show- no call because he ended up in jail. I had one person out for two days....Ugh..it was horrible.
This coming week should be better. I hope...lol...

I went with my boss and his wife on Friday to get new company cell phones..I asked my boss if we could go shoe shopping after we were done there...lol...he wasn't interested...lol
He did talk to me about getting me a company gas card...Yay.....I hope he does that soon...
It would save me about $170.00 a month...Oh that would certainly help me...

Well, guess it's time to get some more done..Now it's mostly paperwork that I have to find a place for...
It's raining out..and I'm actually enjoying the sound of it..very soothing type of rain today...

Enjoy your week!!
