Patting Myself on the Back

Do you ever have an idea of which you're just super proud?! I do: I think I created the best moving plans ever. As we close today (today!) and because we want to be out of our apartment as soon as possible, we plan on moving Saturday. We have asked the Elders' Quorum to help out on that day. However, my brilliance comes to play when I created the Girls' Moving Day, an event taking place the Friday night before the Saturday.

How does Girls' Moving Day differ from the Boys' Moving Day? On Girls' Moving Day we move the pillows, the lamps, the pictures...everything that doesn't quite fit well into boxes. So on Boys' Moving Day, all they get is the big stuff (couches, tables, beds) and the boxes, and it should move much more smoothly. And since it's just girls, I can easily provide dinner for all those that help; boys just eat too much. (And no, that's not a plea for any local girls to come join us...although, if you really really want to, I won't say no. Did I mention I'm serving Oreo pie?!?)

Sounds like a great idea. We just moved our first load and I did the same thing. Friday night was the "easy" moving and Saturday everything was in 70 boxes and the guys had them in the truck in 20 minutes, I was so impressed.
