Hallei-freakin-luja


It's here, it's here, it's finally here! After nearly 2 1/2 months without our stuff, a man named Tina delivered it to us! Thanks Tina! It is so weird to say that and think that it is a man I am talking about. Anyway, it actually came last Thursday, just in time for us to leave the very next day for the US. Yay! Thanks A-1 Pioneer! For making this move as difficult and painful as possible! Don't forget to not remember them next time you are in need of a speedy and reliable mover in the greater Salt Lake Area!
So our house looks like a bomb blew off, and I can't wait to get back to all those boxes and crap everywhere after 20 hours on a plane with two kids and jetlag! Another tasty treat for us was the fact that they packed up and sent dirty dishes. Do you know what dirty dishes look like after 2 1/2 months? They're black. Moving day was such a blur, but if one of them had told me that they needed to pack the dishes and could I please wash them, I'm pretty sure I would have obliged. It's like a journal entry of what we ate the night before and for breakfast {It was hard to tell, but it was German Pancakes and Almond Poppyseed bread in case you wondered}
Anyway, the above picture is how Laine entertained herself while we frantically packed and unpacked in the short 24 hour period before we came. I know this probably sounds so materialistic, but it was almost a tearful moment to see MY {okay our} stuff after that long! Over the last few months many people have said, "Isn't it amazing to see how little you really can live on when you are forced to do something like this?" No you fools, it's not amazing! Life with 4 perpetually dirty plates really sucks! Life with no pictures, no clothes, no chairs, no desk, no hobbies is really quite crappy. Life with your belongings is really a lot better if you ask me!

I am glad you finally got your stuff. I know what it is like without it and it stinks. I love the picture of Laine. I bet the kids are glad to have some of their stuff too.

Yay!! Finally! Of course it would come the night before you leave! I can't believe they packed dirty dishes either, what losers. Can't wait to see you soon!!

Wow, I can't believe that you've been living without all your stuff for so long! Just be grateful that you didn't have FISH on moving day!:)

This BLOG killed me, you are too funny. Did you post this before or after you went and got a chicken and made some soup and made cornbread and some honey....
You are the only person who will think this is funny.

Yeah for getting your things! I agree 100% about having "your" things as a good thing. We interned one summer and thought, "we'll just take whatever we can fit in our van for the summer...we'll be fine..." But, like you, I survived, but I must say I too cried when we got back home and I got to sit on a normal couch rather than a lawn chair and to sleep on my normal bed rather than an air mattress....HOORAY for your boxes!

I know what that is like and I am soooo glad for you that your stuff FINALLY arrived. I can't believe they packed dirty dishes! Very strange. Thank you for the post on my blog, I agree with you 100% and I love the way you approach this subject. Lots of love, enjoy your stuff!

That's great you got your stuff. Two months with the nothing would be hard. Hey - aren't those the pants you made Stacey for Christmas Sophomore year?

Mike & Nicole said...

The Wells Family said...

Whew! I don't know how you survived!?! I would have headed back to the US until my stuff arrived! You are so amazing! I can't wait to see more...

Nice picture! SO funny! I'm glad you FINALLY got your stuff too. Hopefully no wierd bugs or animals crawled into the boxes in transit! I hate unpacking suitcases because once I reached in a grabbed a 2 inch cokroach! ugh.
