As it turned out, I was starting my new position on May 23. We planned to go to Toronto over Memorial Day weekend, and I was taking June 3 off to run the Ragnar Relay again.
There was simply no other days that I could be out of the office. On top of it, we needed to figure out what the heck to do with our stuff, since House 6 closed on May 31, but we wouldn't close on our own home until June 20. So, we do what we have done best for the last year: figured it out.
This meant ordering PODs, hiring people to move furniture into said PODs, purchasing additional moving blankets to protect the furniture, and cajoling a friend (thanks Daniel!) to help move boxes into another POD.
It also meant holding my breath and feeling my anxiety skyrocket every time the younger of the two movers we hired came down the stairs, as the shoes he was wearing lacked the laces they should have had. I'm pretty sure OSHA would have had a fit. Fortunately, no accidents occurred.
