Our movers were scheduled to come pack us up and move us out on Tuesday. To make a very long story short, they arrived at 10:30 PM, didn't know they were supposed to pack us up, went to wall-mart to get some packing materials, worked all night throwing things into boxes (ignoring my written instructions for each room), and finished at around 11 AM Wednesday morning.
We spent the night with the Hales (the kids and I did anyway, Abram was up all night with the movers) and flew to Michigan Wednesday morning. The movers arrived Thursday and we are now living on top of poor Shawn and Lisa. We have no idea where anything is because of the ridiculous packing, but thank goodness for a humungous basement to store things in.
Shawn and Lisa are putting in an offer on a house down the street tomorrow. We are going to Australia in two weeks to visit my parents, so the hope is that they will be in their new home by the time we come back.
Max has reverted to waking up at 5 AM, which let me tell you, is a real treat. He also woke up this morning throwing up and continues to do so.
We were so sad to say good bye to our friends. Every time I read an email or a blog from one of them, I get teary eyed.
Despite a few rough days, we are so happy to be by Shawn and Lisa, see old friends, and already make some new ones. Not to mention there is a new Potbelly's by us and I do love me some Oreo shake with chocolate sauce. Mmmm.
