Movin' In

Holy cow! Moving over this last weekend was a nightmare. After being ditched by our only "man help" and left with me, Jared, my Mom, and Sophie (she's 12) to move the house, I felt at a total loss. Jared called everyone in his phone book and finally got hold of a brother-in-law to help load the UHaul. Only to load it though...once we left for Pleasant Grove, we were on our own. I couldn't imagine how the 4 of us were going to carry 2 beds, 4 mattresses, a kitchen table, bookshelves, dressers, etc. up the condo stairs. (Not to mention the intense storm that hit on Saturday) The whole place was a slippery mess.

We parked the truck to start unloading the small things, praying for neighborly goodness. Sure enough...out they poured. The family right next door to us sent out a father and son to help carry loads up, while the mom and daughter-in-law made cookies and hot chocolate for the workers. Another guy from down the way come to help as well as my 2 cousins, Brooks and Kenny. What started out to be a very stressful day, turned out FANTASTIC. We were moved in in about an hour.

A BIG SHOUT OUT AND THANKS TO ALL THE HELP WE RECEIVED THAT BLISTARY NIGHT! THANK YOU!!!

I can tell we're really going to like this place.



MAKING IT PRETTY.................WHAT A MESS
