I’m a very independent person who rarely asks for help. I blame my parents for raising me that way (kidding!). Anyway, I knew that Steve and I could not haul all the stuff we had boxed to the storage facility ourselves, so I set aside my independent pride and asked for help. Kevin arrived after work and started helping me move crap in the garage so we could get to the three chairs stored in the back. He also started hauling up boxes from the basement. Mom and Burl arrived with the truck and trailer and helped load boxes. We started an assembly line going out the back door so nobody had to haul everything up and down the stairs. Within an hour we had the entire truck and trailer filled and it only took us 20 minutes to unload it at the storage unit.
[Matt](http://www.kerner.net/) and [Sarah](http://beautyschooldropout.net/) Kerner offered their spare rooms for additional storage which meant I could safely store my clothes and shoes in a climate controlled room. Thank you! It’s amazing to me how many people are willing to give their energy and time to help us achieve our goals. Thank you everyone for your help. I’m sure we’ll need more help before it’s all over, but you can bet we’ll reciprocate! I’m sure we’ll have a huge “thank you” party at the new house.
