I heard somewhere that the average person moves 11 times in their life. I’ve lost track of exactly how many times I’ve moved to date, but know that in the last three years alone I’ve moved eight times. I’ve gotten pretty good at the drill and have to once again pay thanks to Humboldt Storage and Moving:
100 New Boston Drive . Canton . MA www.humboldt.com Who ever came up with their slogan: Relax and get moving, and told them to answer the phone: “How can we reduce your stress today”, and then followed up by delivering on all their promises, should be a millionaire. I adore their efficiency, honesty, and professionalism. I wish they had other divisions that would manage the varied stresses of my life. Alas, I look forward to the start of another chapter, with absolutely no trepidation about the move.
Things that have served me well in this nomadic existence of mine:
- A “Just Do It” Attitude
- Contingency Planning
Despite all my best efforts to pre-plan and be prepared, until you are actually in the space there are many things you simply miss. My list is relatively long here, but in my defense I was only in the space a total of 40 minutes prior to my close on Monday. That’s not a ton of time to absorb and reflect. 6 doors in the bedroom – oy vey, where in the heck are my dressers supposed to go? One single drawer in the kitchen – how is that even possible. Who designs a brand new kitchen with only one drawer? A cable outlet by the front door and nowhere in the vicinity where one might reasonably consider placing a tv. These things will all require a plan b, some creativity, and a just get it done attitude.
Stay posted as I adapt to these realities and see what I device for solutions. Oh and if you are interested in furniture – I’ll be selling quite a few pieces that simply won’t work in my new home, but may be a beautiful addition to yours. I’ll post them.
Now back to unpacking!
