|I was the first to drive the beast of a truck!|
My wonderful friend Christie Dewitt picked us up from the airport, we went for lunch at Chuy's (oh how I will miss Tex-mex!). We then picked up the gigantic 26 foot Penske rental truck. I had two moving guys lined up to pack the truck from my 1500 cubic foot storage unit. It took 3.5 hours. We spent the night at Rob and Christies and were off by 8am the next day. We were on a time crunch as Michael had to work by 6am on Friday morning. We trekked across the county in great time. We stopped at my parent's house to pick up the dogs:
They are great little travelers. We made it to Wasaga Beach exhausted, but enthusiastic that we were almost done. Michael's friend from church Pierre came over to help unpack. What a God send! I was inside taking the boxes that they unloaded, which was quite a feat. Once the unpacking of the truck was complete Michael and I were piles of mush. To celebrate the small victory, we went and got much deserved cold adult beverages and pretty much sacked out on the floor among the mountains of boxes around the house.
|A Red Stripe to celebrate the end of unpacking. Very appropriate considering we just came back from Jamaica!|
It's exciting, but exhausting. Worth it? You bet....to have a place to call home. Priceless. Do any of you have a moving adventure to share?
