Yesterday was a bit hairy around here. We started at 7:30 getting up good and early to start moving. I ran to get donuts and bottled water for people helping us move. Found out when I got back it was a waste of time. The only person who showed up to help us move was our home teacher! He is a sweet older gentleman. He worked like a dog. It was embarrassing having only him show up. He refused to leave and we felt bad that he had to do so much work!
We managed to get one truck load done and took it over to the house. One of Zach's friends Jordan Brown showed up after frantic calls for help. Poor Jordan..He helped us all day the day before too. He is so nice. he worked and worked and after a hard day he actually comes to give me hug before taking off. I should be the one hugging him!
We are going to have to rent a truck again when I get back from California to try get the rest of the house that we weren't able to yesterday.At least we are here. Moved mostly in! Tony and I got to sleep in our bed. Hannah got the couch since we didn't have her bed over yet and Zach and Rach slept on their mattresses on the floor. We were able to get their beds over but didn't have time to set them up yet. Should get to that today!
It feels good to be here and it is great seeing our home come together! I am so grateful for the change. I think the only thing I am not loving is Ethan and his new trick! It started the first day we got here and it has been everyday! Apparently the toilet is as fun to swim in as a pool! He doesn't just dangle in it..oh no.. he has to wedge his fat little ham hocks all the way into the toilet. He somehow manages to stuff all his legs down into the bowl. I guess I should be grateful the toilets are clean right? I keep thinking though are they ever really clean? Sick!Here is a pic of it..how do you like it?
On a really positive note.. Rachelle Hannah and I went back to the old home last night to grab another load of stuff to haul over. when we got to the neighborhood we went to the sewer to call for Remi. There are always stray cats that live there. He didn't come but Hannah was convinced he could hear her so she went into a few peoples yards calling for him then she got in the car and called for him as we drove slowly. We finally pulled into our driveway and as she opened her door he came running for her out of the bushes! Yeah! She is thrilled and so are the little girls! And bonus.. I am saved from the title of meanest mom on the face of the earth and my guilt has been appeased a little. I may be redeemed since I took her looking for him and Hannah has been super good about making sure she set up the food and water, vacuuming the spilt cat litter, and trying to show she can take care of them. I think she learned her lesson and maybe so did I!
