Moving out!
Sunday, June 10, 2007
No, not me silly. I'm not moving out for awhile. I'm talking about my friend Holly. She finally decided to consolidate her things with her fiance, MM, and I was one of the lucky (or not so lucky? hehe love you Holly) people to help her move into his place. After a 2.5 hour drive with Dylan, we changed our plans to head to Holly's house, and (surprise, surprise) went straight to Borders to meet up with Holly. I was so pissed I forgot my Borders coupon, and didn't want to buy anything at full price, but oh well. Who am I kidding anyway? Do I ever walk out of there empty-handed? Hardly. I ended up getting Virgin River by Robyn Carr, which will be a first time read of this author.

I finally got to see Holly's engagement ring, and it is gorgeous! Props to MM for selecting such a gorgeous rock. Anyway, we then headed over to the Yardhouse for some grub, and I swear I felt so old being there. I mean, there were a lot of adults there, but man, I'm so over that whole "acting like a drunk idiot while I'm trying to hit on people in public" scene. I watched a women totally piss drunk make a complete fool of herself by trying to get this guy's attention by dancing all crazy next to the table. Geez.

We crashed at MM's house, and the next morning Dylan and I woke up wondering where Holly was. Apparently she left uber early to get the UHaul truck and was already at her place. We left with MM and arrived at Holly's place, where Isabel and her hubby were already helping out. The move itself was tiring, but I ain't complaining because man, the guys had to pretty much everything heavy. Just MM and Izzy's hubby Joey. No other guys. I felt bad for them, but seriously, if I were buff I'd have carried more heavy things. Alas, I am only 4'11" and I can't lift anything to save my life. The craziest part of moving for me was cleaning out Holly's daughter's room. Man, underneath her bed was a disaster area! I've never seen so much dirty laundry/miscellaneous toys/feathers/toys/etc. under a single bed in my life. I should've taken before and after pics, because it's one of those "you have to see it to believe it" kinda things.

The best part of the move was when we finally made the trip back to MM's house, and the book boxes (approx. 4 or 5 of them?) were brought down. Oh man, immediately Dylan, Izzy and I tore open those boxes and pretty much rummaged through all of Holly's books. Let me tell you, she is NOT lying about the size of her book collection. We filled up 3 bookcases with books, and that's putting two rows of books on each shelf. I coulda been swimming in those books if you poured them all on the floor. Like Duck Tales Uncle Scrooge styles, when he jumps in his pile of gold. Yah, like that. I ended up borrowing some books from her, but Dylan takes the cake. This girl ended up loading an entire trash bag of books back in my car this morning.

Meanwhile the boys are slaving away, making trips from the UHaul and then replacing the empty truck with the furniture MM was giving up. Haha, oh man I felt bad, but seriously it was hilarious. They are such good sports. When you first step in MM's house, you can definitely tell it's a bachelor's pad. Random objects are plastered on the walls, there's beer in the fridge, and a DVD collection next to the couch (I'm sure Holly has/will blog about these). Izzy and Holly had a scheme to take down MM's beloved Jimmy Buffet Margaritaville sign and his Captain Morgan banner. As soon as I saw what they were up to, I turned to Dylan and said "Oh no, I don't want any part of that, I don't want to be around when MM finds out." Sure enough, MM noticed the missing Jimmy Buffet sign and said "WTF!! Where's my sign?" LOL Dylan and I were cracking up so hard and she thankfully pointed out that the two of us were innocent. (Thanks Dylan for getting my back on that one)

We ended the evening by barbequing and just hanging out in MM's living room. We were so exhausted but I'm so glad that it was such a chill evening. I like hanging out like that, just relaxing, talking, laughing with good friends. I'm sooooo glad I made the trip there this weekend. Yes, moving is a pain in the fanny, but that's why I'm glad we went. I can't imagine Holly having to go through that by herself. So I'm glad we were able to help out, even though the boys pretty much did the real heavy work. I'm so blessed to have such friends, and I would do it all over again. Only regret is that we didn't take pictures.
