But - we figured that if we were going to move, we wanted a lot more space that was affordable and we found it...87 miles away in Schuylkill county.
The new place is so cool!! It is an old church built in the 1800's that was first turned into student housing and is now apartment/townhouses. Our new place is so much larger - we will actually be able to have friends over for the weekend! It isn't like we didn't do that before - its just that since we started working from home, there isn't any room for sleepovers.....
Moving is also expensive whether or not you hire a mover. I'm so freaked out by other people's moving stories that I ditched the idea of movers and instead have been relying on the kindness of friends and family as well as becoming good friends with the U-Haul fellas. This is why the move is taking 2 weeks instead of one trip. But it's all good - it helps me get rid of stuff (at least that is what I keep telling myself.....)
Check back in a few weeks for more photos and stories from the move - starting with how I hurt my back basically before we even got started..... ::facepalm::
