This weekend was moving weekend! Horray! I have an official
Atlanta address and just live in the cutest part of town. How
happy am I? SO happy.
That wasn’t the case all weekend though. Moving is
stressful. Did you know that? I always seem to block that part out. It’s like
pregnancy. I’ve never been pregnant or had a baby, but everyone says you block
out the painful part and only remember the joy. Sorry moms… I’m sure I’m
offending you all by comparing my move to having a baby. I apologize, but
couldn’t come up with a better metaphor.
Anyways, since I just really finished moving yesterday, the
pain is still fresh. Last week, I posted a few life hacks to make your move easier. They were alright in theory, but here are the real tips. The post-move
nitty gritty. The things I learned during my move.
PS. I miss Lori Beth Denberg and old All That..
AT&T U-verse uses the jack not
the little cable dohicky on the wall. If you set up your furniture to face your
TV that will be connected to the dohicky, you will have to rearrange all of
your furniture again the next day.
If you are moving during the
official Fantasy Football draft weekend, PLAN AHEAD! You need internet to do this.
At the very least, pre-rank your players and let it auto draft for you.
Board your pets. I’m pretty sure I
either gave this advice or thought about giving this advice last week on the
blog and then didn’t listen. Seriously, they will go into a fit of rage and do
crazy things like pee on your floor when you turn on the vacuum.
Unpack both your fridge AND your
freezer. It’s not just one or the other. You have to empty both or you lose
things like your cool infuser water bottle or your Brita and will probably get
charged for not removing them.
If you have weird furniture you
are semi-ashamed of other people seeing, it’s probably best to move it yourself
before the movers come. For example, a six foot tall kitty cat palace…or a life
size peacock… Just hypothetical examples.
Light candles before you really
start to move in. Paint fumes tend to cause excessive napping.
Make sure your gate keys work
before your complex office closes for the weekend.
This one is for AT&T U-verse
again. Do not be fooled by their 200 awesome sauce extravaganza channel
package. Those channels consist of divorce court, soap operas, home shopping,
sermons, and any Spanish game show you wish. Read the channel list included
before you order and go for 300 or higher.
If you unpack boxes to bring the final load from your old house to your new house, don’t forget the
Don’t drop the bag that contains
your jumbo size bottle of gold glitter. Just don’t do it.
There you have it. All totally hypothetical situations with tips to help you avoid them.
Anything particularly awful happen to you during a move?
