I've been a little MIA lately, but for good reason....at least I think so. Packing takes up A LOT of your time and between that, our border run and moving, well life was a little crazy!
As far as moves go, this one went SO smooth! I can't even begin to sing the praises of all the people that helped us, seriously, Zach and I kept saying we had our A-team out for this one. And we've moved, a lot, so we know what an A-team looks like and this folks, was it! Like I mentioned earlier in a blog post, Tom and Marcy(close lifelong bff's) came all the way from BC(that's in Canada---you know, where they like to riot if a hockey game doesn't go their way) to help us move. Any help they did! These two kids are crazy! When they set their mind to something, it's GOING to happen....and in a fast and efficient manner! They also road-tripped down to Georgia with us, amazing!
Amy and her husband Dom came and helped us pack the truck(Amy also was kind enough to help me pack up my dishes--and kitchen in general--so nicely that NOTHING was damaged in the move!)! They kept joking that they needed us to sign an affidavit so that they were not held responsible for anything getting wrecked in the move after they packed it :) SO not necessary because I think only one thing got the tiniest nick in it(and that was en-route) and seeing as to how I have all garage sale furniture, it officially adds character. And let's face it, I probably would have put that nick in there when I refinished the piece ;) Saved me a step! We ended up being packed up early(I know, when does that happen?!? See what I mean about A-team?!) so we decided to stay the night in a hotel about an hour and a half down the road to make the next days trip a lot easier.
Once we completed our two day drive(and that was two nights of ALL my belongings sitting in a truck in some parking lot with me praying all night that it doesn't get stolen) we arrived in Augusta and were greeted with the most offensive heat! Seriously, SO hot. And I'm told this is nothing yet....awesome. The day we rolled in, our other amazing friends met us here...also flying in all the way from BC. I know, our friends ROCK! So we got to unpacking and the truck was unloaded in (again) record time. So the boys went out and bought our dryer(that goes IN my house!!!) while we still had the truck to haul it, then returned the truck a day and a half EARLY! Serious work being done here people.
Now Marcy and Tom have left(boooooo) and Dennis and Anna are left to help(yay!) :) We're planning on finishing unloading rooms before they go and maybe get a room or two painted too...here's to hoping!
Anyway, I've rambled on long enough, time to get back to work! Thanks for bearing with my lack of blogging. Apparently moving takes up a whole bunch of time....who knew?!? ;)
