Return of the Locusts

Well, the movers showed up a DAY early - WTH??! So, I was rushing around, trying to pack all the stuff I, the dog and cats would need for the next week. Guess what I forgot? Underwear! Husband was thrilled, me, not so much. Off to Target...

The moving crew had nine guys and it was like locusts descending. Within 2 minutes they had plastic down on all the carpet and cardboard on the hardwood. 5 mintues later there was a guy in every room with boxes beginning to pack. If you've never been through a corporate relocation, they do treat you right with the moving package. You basically stay out of their way while they pack everything, and I mean everything - the garbage in your garbage cans will be packed unless you remember to empty them before the movers show up. At your destination they will unpack every box, hang all the clothes in the closets and set back up every bed as well as computer and exercise equipment.

It's definitely nice but hey, I think it's the least they can do when they're asking you to move every 2-3 years!

So, we'll be on the air mattress tonight - fun fun - and leave for VA tomorrow. We'll be staying with the inlaws for a few days until the movers arrive at our new house. Luckily, they live right around the corner from Panera so I'll be trying to pop in each day and catch up on blogging.
