We're Heeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrre!

Just a tad over 1200 miles in 2 days and we're officially back in Texas again. The trip was long, filled with lots stops for diaper changes and feedings. BUT, Brodee did a GREAT job...slept most of the time and chilled in his car seat the rest of the time. Neena and Roxy (dog) did good as well. The movers actually showed up on time (more on that later). Our stuff is in and now we're really exhausted.

The house is great...sits on a little more than an acre, the last two nights we've had deer in our yard! I'll put pics up later. For now, I'm in much need of rest.

My quick Rant:

I hate moving...with a passion. We've moved two times on our own and it was a nightmare. So this time we decided to outsource the moving...we hired movers. On the loading day the guys said, "I'll be there at 8 am. It takes me 3-4 hours to load" We said, "Sweet!" What actually happened: He showed up at 11:30 am, and wasn't done loading until 8:30 PM!!!!!!!!! We said....Can't really say it:). On unloading day, today, he said, "I'll be there at 9 am and it will take me 3 hours tops to unload." We said, "Yeah...right!" What actually happened: He showed up at 10 am and didn't finish until 5 pm. We said, "At least he was faster...ugh!" With all the garbage we put up with...I'm still glad we "outsourced".

Ok campers....night-night time!

Glad you made it safe and sound, although be it really worn out and tired. I didn't envy that trip you had to take, with a dog and a tiny little baby. So glad that it was mostly drama-free (except for the problems with the mover). Also glad we can stay in touch thru the power of technology. Miss you guys! Post pics soon!

Howdy! (Had to use the "native language" now that you're back in Texas!) ; )
Those were some of the slowest movers ever!!!! Glad you're there and hope you're getting adjusted to your new home and job. We miss y'all!
Can't wait for your next update.
