Moving Update: May

We have been grabbing boxes from just about everywhere and our garage is full of empty and packed boxes. Our house is slowly getting packed.

We are carrying our packed boxes to the basement so when we load the trailer, it makes it easier. We've started parking one of the cars outside so we can fill up one of the sides as much as possible. 

We had a yard sale on May 9th and we were only left with one bag of stuff to take to Goodwill. We sold quite a bit but we also found a few things (snow blower, tool bench for Barrett and a tea set for Amelia) that were just too good to pass up!

Our house is a DISASTER and my nerves are SHOT!

Finally got all the utilities in our name in Ohio and got all the utilities in Pennsylvania put in a new name for the date of our closing. Rental and automobile insurance was also handled too.

Signed the contract a little early on May 18th so I wouldn't have to come back for the settlement meeting.

My last day of work was Tuesday, May 19th. I took off the last three days so I could get the house packed and ready for the move on Friday.

We started loading the trailer on Thursday, May 21st with the help of a few co-workers and then we finished it on Friday, May 22nd with the help of our Sunday school class.

We pulled out of the driveway with two loaded cars and I had to stop and get one last picture of our first home. Such a bittersweet moment.
We drove all night to Cleveland with only a few minor bumps (Barrett got sick twice) and we pulled into our new driveway at 1:30am. We started unloading the trailer at 6am with the help of friends and family.
Moving is complete, closing is tomorrow and the chapter will officially be closed.

Settlement was Wednesday, May 27th at 10am. Paperwork was signed. We are no longer home owners.
