Does This Make Sense to You? (It Does to Me…)


Does this make sense to you?

It makes perfect sense to me.

Our middle daughter is moving at the end of this month, and she will be hiring my all-time favorite

thing in the whole wide world-

a truck and two movers from

Chapa’s Moving Service.

So my plan for this wonderful ‘opportunity’ is to:

*Have the truck meet us at the storage unit I have and empty it.

*Travel to my house and remove the things from the truck that are mine, leave her boxes from the storage unit on the truck, and place my storage unit boxes in the garage.

*Drive down the street to my father’s house and get my mother’s red lacquer buffet from his

garage and put it on the truck.

*Drop it off at my house and put it in my den.

*Remove the furniture from the garage that belongs to my daughter and put it on the truck.

*Drive to her apartment and empty it.

*Drive to her new house and move everything in.

*Drive to a local Antique Mall and load all shelves from the booth we have had.

(It is much more fun to sell at once a month Market Days- when you feel like it.)

*Drive to my house and put the shelves in my garden shed.

*Take a muscle relaxer.

Isn’t this a great plan?

Laura- Don't forget a glass of wine (if you drink) and a nice tub to soak in at the end of that adventure! I have executed a few of these magic moments myself. Amazing what happens when kids get their own house, isn't it? Your plan sounds perfect-absolutely perfect. Your list is already made and all you need are the two willing helpers that will accompany the truck! Amen!! Diana

Hi Laura. Boy do you have a plan. You know men will never understand it and you will have to guide them through it right? Love the part about hiring someone else to do it all.

Have a great weekend. Hugs...Tracy :)

Having just moved our daughter into her first apartment (on the third floor no less) I can say without a doubt that this would be my favorite thing also :) Sounds like you have a great plan, hope it all goes well. Take care of your back! Kat

Theresa said...

WOW, you have a busy plan... I am tired just reading about it! Enjoy your Saturday planning out the move! HUGS!

Sounds like a plan to me, but you better have a checklist or you might forget one of those stops and leave something!

It sounds perfectly do-able to me - but only after you've been to the pharmacy for the muscle relaxants and to the wine store for the bottle of something red and delicious and not until you've arranged for dinner to be delivered....because you are going to be knackered when you're done!

Sandra said...

That's my kind of moving company!! :-) xoxo

Blue Creek Home said...

It might behoove you to take some kind of mild pain killer before you start this moving adventure!! But, I love a good plan and this one sounds like it's going to work!

Anonymous said...

I say go for it, and hopefully the movers will agree to the plan and have enough hours to git er done!

Linda Jo said...

Sounds perfectly sane to me! Do they charge for each stop? ha!

Domestic Designer said...

Sounds like a fabulous plan to me! :-) Good Luck!

Glenda/MidSouth said...

Well - Did everything get moved to the right place today? Have you had a glass of wine or 2, a bottle of ibuprofen within close reach when you get up in the morning ?? :-D
Seriously - I hope it all went smoothly! Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
