Moving, day 5--the nightmare

   The day started yesterday bright and early, and went non-stop for 19 hours.  Most of the house was not ready to move.  Having always lived as a self-contained part of a house, I had never given much thought to packing the rest of the house.  Moving turned into a nightmare of "get it done".
   On the plus side, our new landlord allowed us to move into our new house a couple days ahead of schedule.  This was fantastic because even the largest storage garage we could find was quickly running out of space.  I'm not sure we would have been able to get everything into it.
   I went to bed in the morning and slept quite sound, waking very sore.  But we were moved.
   All my boxes have been pretty easy to disassemble.  The drywall screw construction makes this easy.  This box had a challenge however.  The top is 6x8' and there is no way I can get it out of the basement in one piece.  It is made up of a hardboard glued to plywood.  I thought I would have to cut the tabletop in half.  I was lucky however.  The seam along the plywood easily split the hardboard.  It wasn't neat, but it was easy.  I'll figure out how to fix that latter.
