After a full day of packing boxes, the moving company came the next day to load all the boxes and furniture. DiploMom and I joked that this was our first “adult” move and it was a bit surreal to see all of our possessions being loaded into a huge 18 wheeler. The crew this day did an excellent job as well. Everything was packed into the 18 wheeler like a huge Tetris puzzle. Of the entire length of the truck, our stuff took up probably no more than 25% of the space. By the time the driver reaches the storage facility in Maryland, the entire truck will be filled with other people’s stuff.
This ended up being another full day and we’ve never felt so exhausted after not really having to do anything. I can’t imagine how this process would have gone if we would have had to box everything up and help disassemble and load all the furniture. We were quite relieved to see the truck pulling away from our house considering that the move is all we have been thinking about for the past month.
