Yeah, that's not funny! But no worries.....our truck arrived. I'm not sure when those guys slept because they came rolling up the road at 9am. It's at least a 5 hour trip from were they were. They backed the truck in and got organized.
The first item off the truck was the most important.
Even if I never have professional movers again I learned some great packing tips. I've never seen someone pick up items so heavy and move them with such ease. They packed everything so well! I did not have one single nick or scratch on anything! They even packed some things I didn't want..haha! I tried to get organized before the movers came. I went around the house and put things where they belonged. I put books with books, DVDs with other DVDs...if it went together I tried to put it where it belonged. I found 8 or 10 little packets of diaper cremes that I have received as freebies in the last 6 years. My kids never had diaper rash so I never used this stuff. I piled it all together cause I was going to give it to someone who might need it or drop it off at church. Totally forgot about it. Not even sure where it was but I unpacked it yesterday. They were all carefully wrapped in paper along with a VBS flyer!
The view from my new front porch. Yeah, it's pretty flat but there are no neighbors, no dogs barking, no stereos going by. And of course it's pointed toward home...south.
