Moving Day

I know I am posting way out of order, but stay with me here.

Tuesday morning, a semi pulled up to our house with ALL 12 CRATES containing our household items. Man do we have a LOT of stuff!

The crew was lead by James Brown, that's right, James Brown.  They were hilarious, and did a GREAT job! Bless them all for hauling all my stuff to the basement, all through the house, and even upstairs.  To worker man #3: I hope your one fall down the flight of slippery steps didn't effect your next day at work! Thanks for not breaking my items when you fell! (ouch)

We fed them lunch, and by about 3PM, they were done, cleaned up the mountain of paper (which the kids, I'm sure, wished they would have left for them to continue to play on) and we were left all alone, with our hundreds of boxes to unpack..... *sniff sniff*

Jump ahead to today... Mom and I (but mostly my Mom) have the kitchen unpacked about 90%.  The dining room is set up, sitting room set up.... kids beds are up and sleepable, but the clothes are still in piles or suitcases all over the house. I'm telling you, getting dressed in the morning is quite a scavenger hunt.  My washer and dryer are constantly running.... and even though Nick organized the garage yesterday, I am filling it back up with empty boxes and more wrapping paper.

I'll be so glad when we are done, and settled, and can function fully.  If it weren't for my mom being here, I'm pretty sure I'd still be trying to unpack my first kitchen box, and probably crying. 

Thanks mom for flying out here with us and spending an entire week+ trapped in my box filled house! Love you!

Who cares about posting out of order? I'm impressed you're posting at all with everything you've got going on.

Glad to hear you're getting settled in and can't wait too see photos of the inside of the house.

Moms are the best! Mine had our entire kitchen unpacked for us, which was a HUGE help. Glad to see you all are settling in.
