Moving

Q: What do you get when you cross moving weekend with your little cousin's First Communion?
A: Really tired feet.

Regarding the move... you'll be shocked to know that the only part of this move to go as planned was the AT&T Broadband move. I even had the pleasure of calling them and complimenting the cable installer. Other than that, it's been a very bad Three Stooges episode. We're moving into the apartment of a lady who is moving into another apartment within the complex. Last week, I was told she would be moving this weekend so we could have the keys probably by Tuesday. This was less than desirable for several reasons, not the least of all, it being my birthday on Friday. I let them know this and she said they'd call me when they knew more. By Thursday I hadn't heard anything so I called so I could reschedule the cable/phone move. Low and behold, we could have the keys Friday so we could start moving first thing Saturday morning. We had packed 2 boxes at that point and we had a commitment at our friend Heather & Rob's that night. So we started packing on Friday. We were told at 4pm on Friday that we couldn't start moving on Saturday morning in fact couldn't have the keys until Saturday at 11am. Rob was going to help us move on Saturday morning but had to leave by 1pm so it didn't make sense to have him make the 40 minute trip for an hour or so. My Mom graciously agreed to help us and together, us 3 stooges moved from 11am until 11pm. Sometime in between moving, Target found a way to eat $200. Sunday was Samantha's First Communion (I will have pictures up probably by next week). It was wonderful and yes, I cried. (When I have children some day I'm going to have to buy stock in Kleenex brand). On the way home, we stopped at Robbinsdale Farm & Garden (where we got Jazmine). We took home an 8 week old champagne baby ferret we've tentatively named Asti. He's a sweetheart. I'll have lots of pictures and stories soon. As if we didn't have enough to worry about, right? <sigh> We also got a humungous cage for the 2 of them and supplies to make 2 new playpens (one for here, one for Mom's). Yes, you read right, yet another project. We took yesterday off of work and finished moving (for the most part). I took today off to clean the old apartment which reminds me, I'd better be going. Thanks for listening to my moving plight. I feel much better now!

Love & cardboard boxes,
Cari
