Bastard Movers

Ok, so the movers decided that they were not coming on Friday and instead would be at our house on Saturday morning.  They didn’t see this as a problem.  {d&k} were mad because they lost an entire day for unpacking.  So k called the moving company to complain and the company is reimbursing us for our “troubles”.  Excellent.  But, it still was a pain losing a day for unpacking all of our stuff.  So, that’s why this post is called “bastard movers”.   But, that’s over and done with….moving on!

The movers came Saturday around 8am and unloaded, and unloaded, and unloaded (we have a lot of stuff) until 11am.  We spent the rest of Saturday unpacking, and unpacking, and unpacking.  Again, we have a lot of stuff.  We also spent all day today unpacking.  Today was fun because I got to organize my kitchen (I say MY kitchen because k doesn’t cook) and begin decorating.  The decorating part is my favorite!  It was fun to find the perfect wall or space for that picture and the right curtains for the guest room.  It is actually starting to come along and it feels cozy now.

The pups had no idea what to do today. They followed us around like our shadows and they got stepped on many times.  Uma, the greyhound, is the worst.  She follows right behind and when you stop, she runs into you because she has the attention span of a gnat.  Then, she gets herself in an area where she doesn’t think she can turn around so she has to back up.  All I hear when she is backing up is the loud beeping from large trucks {beep, beep, beep, beep}.  Meanwhile, a pug or 2 have found a nice holding area behind her and as she is backing up, she’s running them over, causing a huge traffic jam in the middle of the kitchen.  I can’t get to the pugs to help them out of the way because Uma is beep-beeping right along and her annoyingly slow pace.  Oh lord, that happened a million times this weekend.  I felt like I was stuck in rush hour traffic and I could see my exit but knew I had a good half hour of sitting in the car left.  Thanks, Uma.  You make me feel like I am in rush hour traffic.

Ok, back to unpacking. Wow, maybe I have the attention span of a gnat.  So, everything in the house is out of boxes.  The kitchen, dining room, both guest beds, storage room, and living rooms are done.  There is still decorating that needs to be done in some of those, but for the most part they are finished.  Still to be completed are the family room, office, and my bedroom.  I’m hoping to have all of that finished tomorrow.  The office definitely has to be finished because I start back to work on Wednesday.  I can’t believe how much we got accomplished this weekend, given that we lost Friday.  We are unpacking machines!

On a fantastic note:
For those of you that don’t know, I am continuing to work for Bee For The Day, the wedding coordinating company I work for, and I’m starting Bee For The Day Dallas.  B, owner of BFTD, has started advertising down here and we’ve received our first inquiry for a May 2012 wedding!  Woohoo!!  I am so excited and can’t wait to build back up my wedding calendar.

On a not-so-fantastic note:
It has been pouring rain the last 3 days down here (and I’m not complaining, I promise…however, the pups are a little fed up with muddy paw prints all over the floors).   Well, attention-span-of-a-gnat me forgot to close the sunroof in my SUV after returning home from the dog park with the pups…on THURSDAY!  So I’m sure you can imagine what my car looked like today when I went to get in it, after being exposed to the rain for 3 days.  Yep, it was like a swimming pool.  Fantastic.

Ok, prepare for photo overload:

Moving truck arrives (we only had 1/3 of the truck -- we don't have THAT much stuff

The movers unpacked the patio furniture and set all the chairs in a line, facing the house, looking in the sliding glass doors. I'm not sure why, but this was hilarious to me. I felt like people were going to have a seat and watch me unpack.

I couldn't even go into this room without hyperventilating... too.much.stuff.

Well, that was my kitchen. Now, it's just a holding cell for boxes. And, that's why we ate pizza for 3 meals this weekend.

Charlie is the reason unpacking took so long...I had to keep unpacking HIM!

k made dinner tonight! He doesn't cook much, but when he does he makes his specialty...pancakes. Yum! And yes, that's beer. Beer and pancakes...we are pretty classy!




























































Oh, and for those of you wondering what k got me the other night that was the best gift evah….

Little Debbie Christmas Tree Cakes!!!!!!  Yep, they are still just as good as when we were kids.  Try not to be jealous.  I bet you are getting in your car to run to Target to get some now.  I know.  Don’t try to hide it.  (And yes, I know my photo is backwards…I’m still trying to figure this new phone out, thankyouverymuch).

Thanks for visiting!  Enjoy your day!
