Our move went very well last week, and we are officially moved into the house! We're even mostly unpacked except for boxes full of decorations and Christmas stuff which are sitting in our guest room.
I am happy to report that after moving all of our things 1,200 miles, and two more times since then, we only ended up with a shattered glass lid and a glass pan.
One thing I didn't mention previously about our house was the koi pond in the backyard. Awesome, right? Not so much. I didn't look that great, and it required taking care of the four koi living in it.
We decided to post it on Craigslist as free if someone was willing to come pull it out. Matt posted it around 9 AM, and within a few minutes, he promised it to someone. Within a half hour, he received 4 more text messages and a phone call. Who knew koi ponds were in such high demand?
It took about an hour for the couple that wanted it to pull it out, and then we were left with a giant hole that we filled with dirt.
The joys of homeownership!
