We have had such a whirl wind last week. We were able to pack up the house (couldn't do it without help). Friday turned out to be the longest day. I had to pick up Chuck at the airport and then off to pick up the last moving truck. Hurried home to meet our helpers (a MANY thanks to the help) so we could start loading the truck. Let's just say...we have tons of stuff (note to self...work harder at getting rid of things). We had to run and sign papers Friday afternoon. While we were doing that, my dear friend "K-Sue" came and rescued my kids from the chaos and took them to her house. We had some difficulty getting all the things in the truck and there is no way we could have fit that last bit of furniture so...thanks for taking it my local friends.
One of the biggest issues was trying to figure out how to get our big lawn tractor and play set on the truck. We were able to get the play set on the truck and we had to borrow a trailer to get the tractor here. That turned out to be a larger project than we anticipated. But all said and done...we got our stuff here.
We stayed at K-Sue's place on Friday night and that was a HUGE blessing (she even fed us a FANTASTIC meal). At times like this, the help from friends mean so much. We really couldn't have done this with out all of the help that we have had. The packing, loading, cleaning, feeding, kid watching...the list goes on. And now that we are on this end. We have help from our new friends. It is hard to on the receiving end of all the help.
A quick update on the house that we put the offer on...it is on the verge of being a short sale so we have to be patient to hear if the bank has accepted our offer. It would help to find out if we are unpacking here or waiting until the next place.
Well...we are off to the store to find some food. It is COLD here. It will be 8 degrees tonight. When we left our last place, it was 80. BIG difference.
