So, the movers called us at 5:00 pm on Monday and say, "Your shipment is here. When do you want it?" Jon says, jokingly, "Can we have it tomorrow (Feb 5)?" They say, "Sure, we'll be there at 8:00 am."
The moving team was here at 7:55, ready to go. By 1:00 pm, all our stuff was in the house. Yes, it's a mess. See below for before and after pictures of the living room.
"Before" - Taken Feb 4th
"After" - taken Feb 6th
But actually, we're making big progress - the picture may not look like it to most, but I can tell. (I suppose after 6 moves you figure out a system of unpacking that you can stick with.) The kitchen is almost fully unpacked and put away. Everyone's beds are put together, even Alex's (and if you've seen her bed you know it is a project in itself just to get that bed assembled.)
We'll get there. Actually, we may be mostly unpacked by Monday. (Since the Pro Bowl plays here on Sunday, we won't dare leave the house for fear of being trapped on the freeway!) Now that Alissa and Alex are older, they have been unpacking their own rooms.
So after work, gotta get back to the unpacking. Anyone want to come and help?
