Moving frustrations

As some know, we're in the process of moving across town right now.

As of yesterday, I have a washer and dryer sitting in my dining room at the new house.

This is now where a washer and dryer should go. They're there because none of us (I'm including family in this) can get it down the basement stairs. We did measure things, I promise.

I'll be calling the place we got them from tomorrow and seeing if we can return them. I'm hoping it won't be a problem. We haven't used them at all yet, all they've done is sit there and take up space.

I'll be looking forward to getting this move over and done with. Anybody want to help? We've got more than just the washer/dryer to move. ;) Can I tempt you with delicious homemade baked goods?

I'd help, but I've got to go the gym :) And I don't think my wife could lift that washer or dryer either, no matter how many cupcakes you offered her (But for 10 cupcakes she'd make quite an effort, trust me).

We had one hell of a time trying to get our washer down into the basement when we bought our first house last year. We had to take off the front door and the basement door and part of the frame I believe on the basement door. After that it was smooth sailing!

The dryer was much lighter, and much easier as all we had to do was take off the back plate and the duct, and the gas line connector. I don't envy you one bit though; Moving sucks! (And so does fixing the little things that you find every week/month).
