The Day We Moved, Friday

I’m going to have to blog “in the past” to catch up here. I’ll start with Friday since I haven’t said anything about how that day went.

Allan was going to come home early to get the Uhaul and go over to the apartments to pay some money and finish some paper work and then come home by about 6pm to start loading the Uhaul. We asked Allan’s parents to come over to watch the kids so we could pack the Uhaul without walking over one of them or dropping furniture on one of them or without them at our heels screaming πŸ˜‰

I spent most of the day Friday finishing up some packing and whatnot. That evening went just as planned with the Uhaul and the apartment… Allan got the keys and came home with his parents arriving a few minutes later.

We spent the evening loading the Uhaul and then unloading some of it at the apartment. It was a lot of work as our apartment was on the second floor!

The next day, Saturday, we finished unloading everything. It was such a relief to be done! There’s so much more I could say but I know details get super boring!

Friday morning Ember didn’t want to leave my side so after she helped me unload the dishwasher I gave her some slightly wet dishes and a towel to dry them with while I finished packing the kitchen.

Ember loves to help out. Sometimes she’s really good at it. Other times her idea of helping was to unpack the box I’d just packed.

All this week we had really, really, really, really late nights. My kids are still catching up on their sleep.

My kids have been obsessed with puzzles lately. They put together every puzzle they own on a daily basis. Multiple times. It’s a cute little obsession πŸ™‚

So much more to blog about… sometime soon, surely.

  • I am so glad to hear that moving went well. From the photos I can already tell that your apartment is great! Can't wait to see more! I bet the kids are super excited with their new home.

  • Yeah for living closer into town! I bet that feels 100 times better to you. Your apt does look great,nice and bright. In fact your apt looks bigger then the sizes here in CA. No way would you have that much room for two beds. You guys did great in picking out a place. Actually the Lord knew what you needed and He provided that for you. Take care and have fun getting settled in, can't wait to see more and hear about your move. Courtney
