8:30 AM - we get up, quickly move the computers electronics down to the cars so the movers don't take them.

9 AM - Movers are scheduled to arrive. No movers appear, so we take care of taking things down from the walls, etc.

10 AM - Still no movers. djedi calls, and the truck they sent has a flat tire, but they're just fixing it now. Should be another half an hour to an hour. We clean the bathrooms, etc.

11 AM - Big surprise, no movers. We're about out of things to do so I take my car with stuff over to the house, unload it, stop by Lowe's for some spackle and grab some drinks at Sonic.

11:45 PM - Alas, no movers. I take more stuff to the house and grab Chick-Fil-A for lunch on the way back.

12:30 PM - I call the movers and am like "what's up, fools?" The supervisor is very apologetic and says the first truck had a flat tire and then "personnel issues", whatever that means. They're sending a second truck soon and offer us a 20% discount if we want to move tomorrow (we have dinner plans so as long as we can finish before then we'd rather do it today) or a 10% discount today. I take yet another load to the house.

2 PM - The movers arrive! (it's a different crew, they came in on their day off) They start loading stuff into the truck while djedi and I mostly sit around since we're pretty much done with everything, which really isn't so bad.

4 PM - Done loading stuff, we head over to the house.

5 PM - The movers finish unloading the last of our stuff. Yay!

So after all was said and done, it was all fine. We had dinner with djedi's brother and wife and friends, set up the living room, unpacked some odds and ends. Today we hooked up the washer and dryer before djedi left for Houston. Now I'm watching Lost online, although I'm kinda lonely here in the big house.

When I moved, the movers were late too. It sucked ass.

Comment from onefishclappin:

But you were talking about how lonely you were - we should have warrented a edit "Hey - Christi and David visited us, so now I'm not lonely!" right?? :)
It was fun - I enjoyed getting to see the house!

Comment from gregstoll:

Ah, I see now :-)

Thanks for coming over! It was fun to show it off.

I really should have started a load of laundry last night...
