Well, we did it. Well, I did it. Okay my mom and me did it. I had drill the first weekend of June and then I immediately had movers at my house. They packed up the place in 2 days. Two Long Days.
On the first day; they arrived at 10 and left at 5. They didn’t pack everything and said they would “handle it the next day.” But we knew it would take a while. They didn’t listen but whatever.
On Tuesday; they showed up at 9 and got to packing. They also loaded up some crates. They loaded up 5 and I still had half a house left. The driver called for more crates and we got 2 more. It still wasn’t enough. So, the house was packed at like 4 pm but we still had to wait until like 7 pm for more crates to arrive. Luckily, while we waited, I was able to clean so that was the only good part.
Half my stuff waiting on crates. Argh!
After hours of waiting and waiting, the truck with crates finally showed up! I was able to beat a level on Candy Crush that I was stuck on for many weeks so that was the only good thing. Piglet was so bored, he watched 2 movies in the car. Thank goodness for technology!
Then the house was packed and empty and I was so happy. I thought I might have felt sad or nostalgic but really, I was just happy to be done.
On Wednesday, I cleared the house and we started our drive south. Right into Tropical Storm Andrea. Thank you Hurricane Season. That was not fun at all. The last hour on the first day was a total downpour. Miserable. I couldn’t even see the hotel that we checked in to.
Thursday was a little better. We still had some rain. The worst part was the wind. It almost blew off our luggage rack. Also; it said it was waterproof but that was a lie. Our suitcases were soaked and I had to wash all my clothes when I got to my parent’s house. Total bummer but whatever.
We’ve finished phase one of the move. 6 weeks and phase two will begin which is the Big Flight. Eek!
