load ’em up, move ’em out, install ’em

break out the camera phone. snap. click. now pass out from moving about 2000 lbs of tubes in a day…even with 6 men helping, this chica is exhausted.

Yes. The movers dropped this monstrosity. Tore it.
And created a general dishevel (of course only i can tell).
Thankful we didn’t break any people.

Yes. When you tell movers not to grab it by the sticky outy sticks and tell them they are not structural, the first thing they do is test that and break the sticky outy sticks????? hm. ok, but it was so heavy that even with 6 men and a chica, we weren’t too sure we were going to be able to get it in the doors without killing someone–was a definite possibility.

And this by far was the heaviest piece.
Yes, I believe the movers were cursing me in spanish!

AND MUCH MORE…You all are welcome to come join me Friday night.
