OH MY GOD WHAT WERE WE THINKING?!
Just kidding. (Mostly.)
Who wants to help us move? :) Anybody want to buy an elderly double-wide trailer, in good condition, with new kitchen appliances and located in a nice neighborhood convenient to MD-295? 3BR, 2 bath. $13K or make an offer. Lot rent is $520, but with sewer and water, etc etc., it's closer to $600.
Seriously, about the moving: We're doing one shift this Saturday, starting at noon. Pizza and beer will be had. The goal is to move most of the smaller and lighter stuff - clothes, small furniture, pictures, instruments, small appliances, some books. (To see how hard it will be - we have hopes that a hand truck and our basement entrance will allow relatively easy book transport.)
If that goes well, we may move the rest of it ourselves. Otherwise, we think we can afford pro movers. If you are the Gr! Me Lift Heavy Things! sort of friend (and you are inclined to help), don't come this Saturday. We'll really need your help if/when we're getting dressers and mattresses (and books and books) into the place.
