Tackling Moving Things

It's time for Tackle It Tuesday with 5 Minutes for Mom and we did moving tackles all weekend.

We moved my older daughter back home from college on Saturday. It was very easy. She was completely packed when we got there. We hauled two trips to the car and cleaned her entire dorm room top to bottom...all in 1 hour and 15 minutes! So, we rock:-)

Then, my husband moved a HUGE playset for our younger daughter from his sister's house to our house on Sunday. This was harder on him. He brought home 3 loads across town over the whole day. And this thing was heavy!!!! So, it's 7:00 p.m. on Monday night and he is in bed getting some much deserved rest! He is such a good daddy!!

So keep it down out here....Daddy is sleeping:-)

We have all that moving to and from college to come in a couple of years time!
I am hoping both boys end up in halls that allow you to leave your stuff there over Christmas and Easter breaks, because some don't, so that they can rent the rooms out for conferences etc while the students are at home.

Oh how wonderful that your daughter is home. this is the sweetest time when the children come home. I am looking so forward to the end of the school year. Having the kids all day is a treasure that passes all to past.

I bet it feels good to have your daughter back home for awhile! I'm sure she's happy eating your food too!! LOL!

Aww..and yes, what a great hubby you have to do that!!!! That's really tiring going back and forth, plus putting something like that up!

Oh my God. It took me a week to move out of my dorm.

Aww. What a trooper! 7pm? He must have been exhausted.

So glad to hear your daughter is home for the summer!

Awesome Dad!

Moving, in any fashion sucks! It's good that college girl was packed & ready - that makes things so much simpler!

EmmaP said...

well - I am NOT surprised that your daughter was already organized and packed before you arrived! After all -- she is YOUR daughter! ;)

We've dismantled and moved those monster wooden playsets and it's much more work than you'd ever think.

He's a keeper!
