Phew - what a week. In fact, what a 6 weeks! Just 6 short weeks ago Chasen and I came to Olive Branch for his job interview. We were both fairly certain it would go well and fairly certain we'd be moving. Boy that sounds nice and easy -- in theory. As do most things...
Then we were lucky enough to both find our new dream home AND sell our previous dream home very quickly. My friend Angela said we must be 'living right' for this all to go so smoothly. The smoothness quickly faded. We went through unexpected new home drama and a bunch of current home selling/repairing drama. Ah the joys of real estate! The good news is that both our Arkansas and Mississippi realtors have been hard working joys to work with.
This brings me to now. On Friday the packers came. They packed up our whole house in 5.5 hours. WOW! They worked so fast... if I didn't watch it they would have packed ME up. Then yesterday, Saturday, the loaders came. They loaded it all up in 4 hours. It won't arrive until Tuesday, though.
I transported these two very important guys personally: Pup and Bear. I've had Pup since he was bigger than me. Chasen quips that I've always had a thing for engineers. Ha! Bear is his pal from childhood.
There goes my beloved leather couch onto the monster rig. It better arrive in the same condition!
Once I arrived in Olive Branch, Chasen was already at our new house cleaning. We did that for a few hours even though my ankle for some reason was hurting and swollen. Stress? Who knows. It is better today. I did question yesterday if it would ever be better. It was a long day and I was exhausted and frustrated and just plain unhappy. Today is a better day!
I am not going to try to run/walk today. We have more cleaning to do, and I am just concerned with el ankle. Rather, I am going to focus on the tons of business work I have to get done, look forward to the furniture arriving on Tuesday and the internet/cable/telephone service starting on Wednesday!
It has been busy and it has been hectic. But soon we'll be settled in -- I hope!
