Moving Is A Process

Just wanted to start out by saying wow, I've had over 300 page views since I first started my blog in may of last year. This last week has been full of ups and downs. After packing everything up, it was moving day which we had intended to be the first but as everyone knows no move goes smoothly. Luckily everything pretty much got turned on the first day, which of course involves someone having to be present for them to be turned on. Our Adventure started with dropping the boys off at Grandma's then went with my husband to do his bread pull first thing in the morning. Which took it's sweet time. Stopped by the office to pick up our keys and off we went to pick up our dogs. I'll be honest our dogs are pretty spoiled they have a rug that they liked to lay down on. If the rug was being washed or outside to dry the dogs would be right at the back of your neck,heavy breathing and all till their rug was placed back in it's spot. Besides the car ride bringing the dogs home, they really haven't traveled too much so in the back of the truck in their crate they went. Horse and all. Poor girl didn't know what to do sit, stand, whine and beg to be let out. After picking up the boys with their backpacks of goodies to occupy their time while we waited for the water and eletric to be turned on. Of coure someone had to be present so here we were waiting at the new house empty, while the husband went to start the loading the truck and the phone calls of helping hands. The boys enjoyed their time running end to end of the house, picking bedroom, and were all their toys were going to go. Soon after hubby left on comes the electric, and not too long after that, so too the water is running. The wait was on for the helping hands to help load and unload, yet it just didn't happen. As the dogs had settled into the fenced backyard, and the boys had finally settled for a nap. The rain decided it wasn't going to wait anymore. So a change in everyone's plans set in. Close to 7 that evening three loads finally showed up. Uncle Duff, Grandpa, and hubby, arrived. After eating and returning home to try again the next day with a uhaul. After all the boys had settled down for the night on makeshift beds, Mom set to work to make sure everything was ready to go. Woke up bright and early and quick as pie everyone got to work, Grandpa and his Father/wife came out to help and within 3 hours the majority was loaded up on the truck. 45 minutes after that everything was unloaded. the next couple of days we retrived the rest of our belongings and mom started the unpacking process. Big hug and kiss to the everyone that helped couldn't have done it without you, by any means.
