Box Me In…

We are ready for our strong armed helpers to arrive tomorrow to fill our second container to be stored at a yard while we wait to find a home to move into. The third container will be dropped off on Monday and the full 2nd container will be on it’s way. We will work on filling the third container when we get home from my pop’s funeral in Southern California.

Choosing joy in the midst! Hope all is well with you dear bloggy friends!

Boxed In…

It’s called Simple Box but there is nothing simple about loading a box container. There are sections of the box designated for medium, heavy, light and very light weight. The boxes will be lifted at a tilt to load and unload off a truck so the weight and the tie downs are crucial for a successful journey and delivery.

We weighed every box and item that went into this moving container. In the middle shot Andrew is weighing the box spring that would be the last item put in the container in the very light section.

Monday was our only forecast this week of a full sunny day so we called all hands on deck and worked from morning to night to get all 6100 pounds in and secured.

We all had very sore muscles and tired legs and arms but were thankful for a job completed well and with love remaining amongst the workers! We couldn’t have done it without our helpers. Tuesday was a light day of work for me as my body needed recovery time. Friday is staging day here. It will be interesting to see the results of that.

Hope all is well with all of you.
