|Backyard Sunset - Colorado|
For the past four years we have called Colorado home. We enjoyed the beautiful views of the Rocky Mountains and the fairly mild weather at 6,000 feet.
But all good things do come to an end.
Mr. Collector accepted a job transfer in September and I've been the trailing spouse working on the move.
Since September life has felt like camping. We had stagers, appraisers, inspectors, Realtors and the prospective buyers traipsing through our home on a daily basis.
We bought a wonderful new home in Minneapolis in October and sold the Colorado house.
Fast forward to today - the packers have started.
We are usually a three day pack and two day load. It's a 51 foot semi trailer in front of the house that will drive the household to Minnesota.
This is somewhere around move number 8 for us. We have had good and very bad experiences with movers. Our worst was the theft of the majority of our household goods from the trailer while it was in transit. Fortunately we have always been good 'documenters'. We had a full household inventory including photos. The claim was still a lot of work and we don't want to ever go through that again. We are hoping for a better experience this time!
Wish us luck, my next post should be from the new house later in November!
I hope to share photos of my new studio and quilt storage space.
I may have spotty internet access for a few days, so I may not be able to respond to comments right away....
