Quick Update

No time for anything fancy, but here's a little update for those of you wondering...

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.

Yeah sorry about that email :) Glad to hear you're "hanging" in there and hope it works out for ya as times goes on. Enjoy Australia!

Okay okay. Did Lisa tell you to post how crazy the house is to make sure the Smythe's don't show up with their big messy family? Because we are still coming. I don't care how cramped you are. :)

I sure miss you. I have been dying for you to post something new. So sorry to hear about both the lame movers and Max being sick. I'm excited for your Australia trip!

Glad you guys arrived safe and sound. Aida tells me everyday how much she misses playing with Max. I tell her how much I miss talking with his mom.

I am thrilled to hear you are "home" in AA. Sorry I missed you yesterday at church but I have a horrible head/chest cold. Andy says it's my sexy voice. Lovely. Hope Max feels better soon and everyone else stays healthy and strong. Welcome home!

Jill said...

It was great to see you at church yesterday! Welcome back!

Cathy said...

Glad you arrived in Michigan safely! Hope Max gets feeling better soon and that you can find everything you need in the not-so-well-packed boxes!

MMMMNNN. Oreo Shake! Oh, sorry, I was distracted for a minute. That does sound like the perfect consolation for a rough week. I'm glad you survived the move in spite of the mixup hope Max is feeling better and will sleep longer soon!

Sorry to be the evil friend that is happy that you have moved, but Dan & I are SO HAPPY that you are here with us now! But I am very sad to think of all the great friends you've had to leave behind. That is so hard.

glad you are settling in (albeit earlier in the AM than either of you would like!) - still missing you terribly...daily.
