Tales of a Georgia Peach!

Sunday, June 28, 2009


I am finally down to three boxes left to unpack! I don't think I've done too bad, considering we've only been here one week and I was gone for five days. I can say that I will never again move without a moving company! I've never used one before, and wasn't too thrilled about strangers coming in and packing up all of my stuff and then unpacking it. But I quickly got over it! I'm so glad that we had them, considering that we filled up a tractor trailer! We had 172 boxes plus the furniture and big items that was not boxed! It took 9 hours on Monday to box up everything, 9 hours on Tuesday to load everything, and 6 hours on Saturday to unload everything and unpack almost everything! I have way too much stuff! Look at all those boxes!

Yes! Those are legs that you see underneath the desk! It was amazing to watch these guys load the truck! They would strap everything to their back and even carry things in their hands, I stood there with my mouth wide open watching them for hours! It was like a bunch of pack mules!

And I can't leave out the Jettas! I think my husband has to hold the title for the most things hauled in a Jetta! We've hauled lumber, water pipe, furniture, you name it, and now plants and cleaners that the movers couldn't take. And by adding a trailer, we were able to move a sleeper sofa that he bought from someone in his apartment complex in Atlanta! (He's also moved his motorcycle with that little trailer behind his Jetta!)

This is what the house looked like Saturday after the movers left. It was awful! It looks so much better right now! I just haven't had time to take pictures of the cleaned up organized house yet!

It's looking great! I can't wait to come see it in person! Are you going to be around for a phone call today or tomorrow? I missed you're call the other day and haven't had a chance to call you back yet.
