Successful Moving Day

Well, Sunday was a successful day of moving, and we have so much more room!


We weren’t sure how well this desk would fit through the doorway, but Harry removed the door from its hinges and the desk went through with about an inch to spare.






The credenza came apart and headed out in two pieces. It was still heavy though. All of the furniture going out today was really heavy. We were very glad that we weren’t the ones carrying it.


The hutch is emptied and all of the dishes are packed away in boxes.


They will be going to MA in September. We had the movers bring the hutch out into the garage. So now we only have to move the hutch from the garage to a trailer.


After we moved the hutch, I figured out where all those mice toys I bought for the cats have gone. They were hiding behind the hutch!

Ariel is trying to figure out which one to chase first.

From the bedroom, we moved these two dressers and that huge tv!! All gone to their new home.



We also moved a huge truckload of yard sale stuff to my sister’s later in the afternoon on Sunday. But we were a little more involved with that move, and I forgot to take pictures. Whoops!

But it definitely was a successful weekend. We feel like we have made a lot of progress this summer. And it’s not over yet – we have the yard sale this coming Saturday and more furniture going out in September! Moving in the right direction!

Have a great day everyone!


  1. No more heavy furniture. I like that most of the furniture in an RV is built in. I don't want anything that I can't carry myself. I agree, I enjoy walking around my house now and looking at all of the extra room.

  2. nice to be 'free of all large pieces of furniture'..but now where are the kitties going to hide their toys?

  3. I had to giggle at the cat toys pic. When we were getting our house ready to go on the market, we discovered our cat toy resting place: Under the range.

    You're making terrific progress. Congrats!

  5. Sound like you're right on schedule, inch by inch.
    Don't worry about the market, God already has a buyer for your place ♥

  6. love the picture of the cats' toys. I've found more stuff behind furniture! Gettin' empty, room by room :)

  7. It's amazing how many cat toys you find when furniture is moved. Been there. . .

  8. Congratulations on such a successful weekend!! Doesn't it feel great to see those BIG pieces going out the door??
    I bet Ariel thought she was at Petsmart!!

  9. Glad things are moving along swiftly... great pictures!!!
