Well, in a way ...
If you've made sure there's both paper towels and toilet paper (in each bathroom), tissue in the kitchen, some microwaveable lunches in the freezer, milk and juice in the fridge, and if Husband keeps forgetting to pick up the jacket he hung up in his clothes closet, then can't you say you've started the moving?
We thought we were going to sign the mortgage papers today, so we planned on stopping at the grocery store just next door. It turned out that we were visiting the bank to answer any questions we had. We didn't. It was a nice conversation, but not what we had planned on. The actual papers won't be ready until next week. However, we did lock in the rate at yesterday's level, so we're set to go.
So, in the store, it was just as easy to buy a few extra of things we were buying to stick in the fridge at the new house. And of course, we were simply going to drop them off and head home to do more packing.
But you can't just set food in a new fridge still dripping with packing material and the miscellaneous dirt streak here and there, now can you? So, two hours later, we had finally done enough to feel we had started, and we headed home -- the old home.
So, we are declaring the move officially underway.
End date? Stay tuned ...
