Rewind: Moving Day

Compared to our other moving experiences, this one was HEAVEN! Sam's new job paid to have us moved, so for the first time we used a moving company. On day one, three guys showed up at our apartment and boxed up all our stuff. It was interesting watching how professionals pack. The next day, two guys and a lady showed up, inventoried all our stuff and loaded it onto the truck. The hardest part for us was just sitting there and doing nothing. I am especially grateful that this moving experience was so easy because I was feeling a bit under the weather with morning sickness, so it was nice to not have to work hard. My parents were in town, so my mom took Levi both on packing and loading day. He was a bit surprised to come home and find piles of boxes instead of all our stuff. Luckily, they did not pack his bigger toys until loading day, so he still had toys to play with that night. In fact, it was pretty cute to see his face light up with recognition and relief when he found his toys among the boxes--whoever took all our stuff had left something behind for him! Moving has gone smoothly so far... we'll see how we feel about it after everything is delivered and unpacked.

i think if joel's next employer doesn't pay for moving, we will. moving out here by ourselves was MISERABLE!

So have you guys found a house? Or are you staying at your parents or in an apartment till you find something? What's happening there? Drew got an interview last week with PNNL, so we are waiting to see what happens there, if he gets it we will probably buy a nicer home in north richland instead of building a "trac" home in west,, but we will see.
