One of my excuses for being a spotty blogger lately is our big move back to the city of Chicago! It’s been three years since we lived within city limits, and we are both unbelievably thrilled. At least ten times in the past week, Dan and I have looked at each other and said “We should never move away from here.” Things are a lot rosier now that we have all our stuff out and organized, but the process of getting there was a whole ‘nother story! Dan coordinate everything beautifully and we had so much (greatly valued and appreciated help) along the way. This week’s picture theme is “Moving Day!” Enjoy.
Good thing Dan’s dad is a world-class truck organizer. I would never want to challenge that guy to a game of Tetris.
Dan hauling his tools – good thing he’s so handy with them. That makes moving a lot easier.
Penny has spent the entire moving process in a state of distress and confusion. When she sees suitcases, she knows it means we will probably leave her somewhere for a few days. I think when she saw boxes, she thought we might abandon her completely. She is still adjusting to the whole situation, but she spent moving day howling and letting everyone know how miserable she was to be behind her baby gate.
Empty old apartment! Looks like someone needs to clean…oops!
My dad and Dave were determined to put our new entertainment center together. I’m happy to report that they were successful, and its now serving all of our entertainment storage needs. Thanks, guys!
Penny (and our bikes) found a nice, new home on our back porch!
We’ll call those the “before” pictures. The “after” ones will be coming shortly!
What do YOU hate the most about moving?
