Moving Week

We will be moving this coming week. My entire life is either in boxes or waiting to be packed.

I'll see you on the other side of Friday. Wish us luck or say a prayer for us, if you are so inclined.

Ooops. That's the wrong kind of moving truck, isn't it??

Here, this one is better:

That truck photo reminded me of this one:


Hope your move isn't too stressful!

I wish you luck AND I will say a prayer for you.

Moving is a pain, but you will get through it just fine.

Wonder if that truck could pull into the Taco Bell drive thru in the picture?

Thanks Mike. I was initially searching for a pic of the Clampetts, but ran across this one. That pic of yours is priceless!

Thanks Amy! I am wondering if I will survive at this point. OMG. It's awful...

Wordsmith - I'm thinking that the top piece of furniture might get sheared off if they attempted such a stunt! lol. Thanks!

Thank you Donald!

I was wondering where you disappeared to but I just havent checked blogs over the weekend except for Saturday. So will see you when you get back into it when you do. Its a lot to do home schooling and then move and keep up the new place too. So take your time getting back to us.

Good luck!!

You're right. That top truck isn't a moving truck. That truck is for cleaning the house after we've all spent all summer outside. ;)

Yo Girl, good luck with the move and make sure everything is tied down tight.

My prayers are with you all.

good luck minimizing breakage! At this point though you can establish a Checkpoint Charlie, and decide what really goes into the house or not.

Thanks y'all. What a nightmare. We didn't make settlement today - - dang. An important lesson for the girls in the responsibility that goes with signing a contract. No problems on our end, we did everything we agreed to do. The buyer (a public school teacher) apparently is not aware of the seriousness of not upholding ones end in a business transaction. They say that the least bright, for the most part, go into the education field. That is not true of all, of course. But I see evidence of it on a fairly regular basis. Our buyer would be a case in point.

After pointing out that the buyer and the mortgage company both are required to adhere to the contract, in the way that the contract they signed requires, it appears that the settlement will take place on Monday. It had better. I didn't go through this last week for nothing - that is for damn sure.

We would prefer not to take our grievance to any great length, we would prefer that the deal just go through.

a public school teacher welching on a contract?


They haven't kept the social contract with the American people by providing decent education for our kids so I guess they don't feel compelled to live up to any other contract.

I hope all gets settled soon. That kind of stuff is the last thing you need.

School teacher, contract...Union strike! Sheesh, I hope it goes better for you.

Moving is a terrifying experience and a long process too.

Wordsmith - I know!!!!!!

AOW - it has been hell. Just pure hell. I won't be totally unpacked for atleast 2 weeks. The beds are set up, the school room is set up. Monday will be settlement and Tuesday I plan on getting the kitchen together. Wednesday will be curtains. Then the rest of the house as we can - - plus, we're painting a couple of rooms. I'd say, 2 months. That's when it will feel a bit more normal.

This house is huge. Probably 3 times bigger than the rowhouse we just left. The yard is gigantic. It's a HUGE change.

I am sorry to hear its been such a pain in the butt this move. Things are quieting down here again between hubby and I. Thanks for the kind advice. Take your time and get back to us when you get a free moment of free time and self time. I have noticed if I dont have some of that each day I go stir crazy.
