Moved

As of yesterday, all my possessions have finally been relocated from the old place to the new place, and some of them are even in reasonable locations.

On my own, I probably would have just hired a moving company to move them all for me, but as my parents were taking back some things I wouldn’t be needing, my mom saw fit to ask every strong-looking guy on the sidewalk if they happened to have a sideline in moving furniture … and one did! I ended up renting a Zipvan and calling him twice, once to move boxes and once for furniture. Between the two of us, we were able to move everything, even the couches. I paid less than a proper moving company would have cost, and he got more than a moving company would pay its workers.

Call it a triumph of the informal economy.

There are still quite a few boxes left to process, mostly mine, but I’m starting to believe that our little layout (planned ahead of time in Inkscape over a to-scale floorplan image) is going to work out quite nicely.
