Moving to Georgia Series - day 1

Email DJ

DJ / 9 Years Ago

Today is day 1 of the movers coming to pack up all of our stuff. Surprisingly, only one lady showed up today to start packing our house. She is moving along pretty quickly, however, but she is obviously going to need some help with the furniture.

It is strange having the house be in such disarray considering that we have all the stuff we do not want packed stuffed into one room off to the side. This includes the clothes we are taking with us (living out of a suitcase - hooray!), stuff for the pets, a cooler, and other various things. Now I get to play car trip Tetris as I will try to cram all of our stuff into 2 cars while leaving room for our 2 cats and a dog.

The biggest issue is the waiting. The packing will not be done until Wednesday, then we get to move into temporary lodging for 8 days, then take our three day trek to Georgia. Oh well, Wednesday evening will come soon enough, I wager. Fun!

I hope to use a decent amount of time that we spend sitting in billeting to upgrade this site further - even though I have done a ton, there is still so much left to do. July should be a crazy month!

    We went on a cruise!
    The TLDR or "short, short version" about what we did

    We did a 7 day Caribbean cruise with DJ's sister, Lori, her husband, James, and their kids, Oliver and Lucy. We flew from Newport News to Houston and sailed from Galveston. We had stops in Cozumel, Mexico; Grand Cayman Island; and

    Moving is hard work
    We moved to our new house six days ago and man, that was some super hard work. I was more exhausted than I've been in quite some time. The only times I can remember it being worse was after our half marathons and after my Spartan Race. I tried to workout two days later and could barely do any of the moves. It was just silly.

    The house is coming together nicely, though. It is older, but we like its quirks, and the backyard is simply amazing. This house will force us to be more social which I think is a good thing. We were very secluded in our last house. I worry a little about how much the utilities will cost, but I don't think it could possibly be that bad.

    We should be here for at least 17 months, quite possibly longer, and we're going to enjoy it while it lasts!
