Ibuprofen Sunday

Today is the big move of items from the house and 'the rental' to storage. This coordinated effort has some problems already but we'll see if we can pull it off. First we pick up the U-Haul at 8am. Then we put the entertainment center from the house in it. We then come back to the house and wait for reinforcements (Greg and Kerry's nephew Anthony.) We then head to 'the rental' and load up a very old and heavy player piano that belonged to my great grandfather on my mother's side (the Indian reservation in North Dakota.) The issue with that is we have 3 men to lift it... usually takes more but maybe I can snare another somewhere. Anyhow, that goes to Mom's house. We come back to the rental, load up, and take some things to donate to charity. Lastly, we come back to the rental and grab all the stuff going into storage (sectional, tables, speakers, DJ equipment, CD collection... etc.)

A lot of work and I think that typing it out helped solidify it in my mind. Hope you have a wonderful Sunday and Cinco de Mayo!

Yeah... hope you have plenty of ibuprofen handy! The CD collection is what made me think "Whoa!". LOL

I loafed all day at a BBQ in Minneapolis. :)

That's a tight schedule. I hope it all worked out!

Also, belated congratulations on your recent nuptials. I finally got a chance to read many of your older posts.

Hey Martin, you are putting a lot of good stuff in storage....Aren't you going to need some of the CD's an DJ equiptment? Well, good luck with all the moving.

Hope the move went well. I hate moving. That's why I pony up the money and pay for movers.

The move (well, of all the big items) went amazingly well. It will take some time to clean the place out, though. Thank you all for your positive reinforcement.

A few quick thoughts:

The CDs are mainly going into storage because we don't have room for them in the condo. Space is really limited. For now, I plan to take all the CDs that are in my iPod already and put them in storage with the discs that I may need to get to for the show closest to the front. The storage unit is really close by.

Fred is back. For some reason, I thought he was gone for good but good to see him recharged.
