So, the movers showed up today, and took care of the big stuff: Couch, dresser, hutches, beds, tables, chairs, and the elliptical. Basically, anything I couldn't carry alone, they took care of. That still leaves a lot of miscellaneous stuff, and things we didn't want them to handle, for us to move.
Luckily, I was actually on the ball, and called the cable company LAST week, so the cable guy showed up at the new house about 3 hours after the movers were done, so we were actually only without the Internet machine for <24 hours.
Things are fitting well in the new place, and I don't have much argument with where my wife has decided to initially locate things. The tough part is going to be taking a serious turn on unpacking. We have stuck a lot of stuff in the garage...I don't want to still be unpacking in 3 months.
Which means it is time to wrap this up. The only real new negative discovery, other than dog poop in the backyard, was poop in the garage. There is some nice shelving installed on one of the walls, and when we went to go start placing boxes on it, I noticed little black specks, looking strangely like mouse droppings.
I'm thinking about just putting a space heater in the garage and letting the corn snake loose in there...that's a good way to make friends with the new neighbors.
