The littles and I arrived back to our temporary housing yesterday afternoon. I've finally finished the painting and the carpets have been professionally cleaned. The heating/AC guy has come out and taken measurements for the gas line installation on my new range. Unfortunately, I was not successful in finding a professional moving company to pack and move our belongings. I had to break the news to Mr.B yesterday evening.
Well, Mr.B came home early today. Real early. 11:00am early. He hastily informed me that I needed to grab my purse and the littles because he needed me to go with him to pick up a U-Haul truck from a town more than 100 miles away (that's the closest one he could find, nothing local was available - no surprise there). We arrived back "home" around 4:30. He told me that a couple guys he works with are going to help us move. I inquired as to when this was supposed to happen (expecting Sunday afternoon or Monday morning). He told me they'd be here at 8:00am TOMORROW morning!
I responded with, "You mean I have less than 14 hours to pack this entire house?"
Mr.B replies, "It will be O.K. I don't think it will take you more than a couple hours. How about I run up to the store and pick up a few steaks to throw on the grill?"
Me: "Are you kidding? It took 4 professional packers 6 hours to pack our house when we left Texas. I really don't think we have time to cook anything. I think you should call the pizza guy."
Mr.B: "Well, O.K. if that's what you want to do."
Me" "Well, I'm not hungry and I've a house to pack - I don't have time to eat much less cook or clean up after anyone else who has cooked."
Mr.B: "I was trying to help you out."
Me: no response, as I hurriedly entered the house and immediately began organizing my tape, scissors, box marker and ...
As of right now, midnight, OG and I have packed every room except the kitchen. I plan to take a 5 hour nap and pack it 1st thing tomorrow morning. I hope Mr.B has made plans to pick up McDonald's or bakery muffins for breakfast tomorrow morning, because I still don't have time to eat OR feed anyone else.
