Jason, Murphy and I have successfully moved into our new house with a lot of help from a moving company and fueled by Domino’s Pizza. I kind of hate that I had pizza two days this weekend, but I’m trying to not let it bother me. I mean, when there’s no food in the house and you’re tired from making four trips (20 minutes each way) to and from the old house, delivery pizza is kind of the best option. I just wish this mass pizza consumption wasn’t occurring 4 weeks before my wedding.
We used a moving company (Two Men and a Truck) and let me tell you, it was the best $350 that I’ve spent in a long time. Okay, it was probably the only $350 that I’ve spent in a long time. Well, besides the money we spent on the house! It was tiring enough just moving some little stuff, I can’t imagine how awful it would be to move all of our furniture. It took the movers about 2.5-3 hours, though they only charged us for 2.5 for some reason. They also gave us three men for the price of two. Very positive reviews here for that particular moving company.
The whole move thing has been very unnerving for Murphy. I don’t know if he thinks we’re leaving him or what. But he’s been wild. Lots of barking and running around the house, jumping on me. Last night, he wouldn’t leave my side. He seems to be more adjusted this morning. I told him a million times that we’re not leaving him, we live here too. Sometimes I really forget that my dog doesn’t understand English.
Today is going to consist of unpacking and probably making a few purchases. One thing about the house that bothers me is that it’s not that clean. I guess when you’re not renting and trying to get your security deposit back, you aren’t as concerned with bleaching the tub and stuff. I mean, it’s not like they left trash or anything, but there is just some dirt. It’s weird, when it’s my dirt, it doesn’t bother me that much, but when it’s other people’s dirt, ewww. I spent a good half hour scrubbing down the fridge last night.
Pictures to come after we get the place in order. Unfortunately, my laptop won’t turn on and that’s where I normally upload pictures to and blog from. I think the battery might need to be replace. Ugh.
Happy Memorial Day!
