My Awesome Movers

Today was moving day and everything I couldn't move myself was moved by these two awesome guys.

They were fast. They were careful. They were incredibly strong. I had a million–OK, it was twenty-some–well-backed book boxes. I couldn't have carried just one of them up the stairs outside my apartment and they were putting 4-5 boxes on a dolley and practically running up the stairs with them ... in this incredible heat.

I have a car full of lighter, more fragile or just more easily NOT packed in boxes stuff . . . soon I'll bring it all in and start finding a place for everything–one of the movers did ask if my second bedroom was going to be a "junk room" (I'm guessing he was thrown by the presence of 4 x 8 sheets of insulation ;-)

Did I mention that they were very fast?  As part of my move-in special, the apartment complex paid for three hours of movers . . . these guys finished in 2 hours 10 minutes.  A nearly free move for me–they were so awesome, I did have to tip them enough for a few rounds of the Margueritas they were talking about as we wrapped up.

After a couple pretty horrible moves, I was really grateful for these awesome guys and the good work they did for me today.

Yea, you are moved in!
And it was a good experience instead of a horrible one.
Kitties must be pros at this moving stuff now :)
Now comes the time it takes to get everything where you can find it again. Hope that part goes quickly.

and it looks like they were cute too--that is always a plus!

A (fairly) uncomplicated move must be a bonus in that extreme heat. You and the cats are getting to be relocation pros.

I hope your new place is everything you hope for.

I hope you love your new place -- you've had a great beginning. I like to read about good, hardworking people. I hope your air conditioning is working well. I check the Texas weather reports every evening and think about you.
