The movers have arrived! They were originally scheduled to pack/move us for four days, but were finished in three. The focus of day one was to pack up all items going to Japan. Deciding what we were taking to Japan, and what we were leaving behind in storage was challenging. Justin came up with a tagging system (blue painters tape) to help us determine the things we should bring with us. Once we tagged everything, we tried to put it into one central location (the living room). While it didn't look like we had a lot going with us, it did take the movers a full day to get everything packed and loaded in the truck.
On days two and three, the movers just packed up the remainder of our house going into NTS (non-temporary storage). They were finished yesterday around 5:00pm. Its bittersweet standing in an empty house. So many memories we've had in this place, its hard to not feel a bit sentimental about leaving it. I hope the renters we get in here will take care of it for us.........we'll see. The rental agency we're using listed our house online last night. It would be nice to get renters this month. Sayonara for now.
