For a vacation week it's been pretty busy. I was up every day before 7, and before 6 a couple of times.

I moved this week. Moving day was Thursday. It took Monday-Wednesday to pack. I took some breaks but it was a lot of work.

The move itself was pretty fast. I went with Munden's Moving based on the recommendation of a co-worker who had them a few years ago. It was a good pick. They arrived right at 8 AM. It was three movers and a 5 ton truck. The guys were a good size, not Andre the giant huge but big. They were 1-3 inches taller than me, and broad shouldered. They had presence with their size.

They were strong. I was packing some of the boxes and I felt a bit bad they would be heavy. But the movers were taking 3-4 2 cube boxes at a time they were very strong men. The move went well and they were done in two hours. It ended up costing less than I was expecting to spent. So I'm glad I went with Munden's.

I finished up at the old place today. I got back most of the damage deposit after doing some cleanup. I lost $100 off the damage deposit because I didn't bother to steam clean or pull out the fridge or stove. It was too much cost and work to do those tasks. For the time I did spend going back there cleaning I made around $50 an hour for my time spent so I'm glad to be getting some of the damage deposit back. The damage deposit is a nice bonus, a refund on spent money from three years ago.

Still lots to do at the new place. It's nice to be in a bigger place and it's pretty good so far. I was at the last place three years. Lots of changes from three years ago so who knows what will happen here. I hope it turns out to be a good place.

Enjoy your new place. I'd send virtual flowers if I knew how.

Thanks for the kind words on my blog. I actually test drove a Honda Civic, got the financing and decided against it, considering the situation at work...I would ditch that Sears Card. Their interest is high. Credit is the new Crack. Ha ha. for the kind words
