We've moved!

Hello again! We are in our new house. I just spent WAY to much time catching up on all the blogs I follow and am still in my pajamas and have done nothing useful today, even though there is a TON to do. Oh, and we don't have the internet yet. Last night Aaron discovered that if you take the laptop to a certain corner of the house we can steal someone elses. :) So I've been holed up in the corner of our bedroom all morning.
A quick update, (pictures will come later) on Saturday we got the truck loaded and unloaded in the new place by 3:00 I want to say. We had lots of help of which we are grateful. Sunday we skipped church because we are wicked and it was stake conference and we would have to drive like, 45 minutes to get there, (which is CRAZY far in Utah) plus we didn't really know how to get to the stake center. But we did drive back out to Saratoga Springs to have dinner with my Aunt and Uncle and cousins. We also picked up some straggling items at the house.
Monday Morgan and I made the trip back over the mountain to the old house, which caused Morgan to complain, "no, new house!" There I packed some more stuff into the Durango and proceeded to clean. I got the upstairs all done by 2:00 and headed back home to Dugway only to return to the townhouse the next morning. I tell you what, I don't know how Aaron travelled that road every work day for a year. It gets old fast! Yesterday I didn't finish nearly as early. It was a long, miserable day. I hate cleaning. It was exhausting. But the fridge is sparkling, floors are mopped, garage is swept out and nail holes are painted over and if we don't get our full deposit back I will be upset. We didn't leave until after 6:00 that evening, but my lovely husband had dinner ready for us when we got home, so that was nice.
Now I can start working on unpacking. Ugh.
More to come later.

I hate moving. I am glad you had lots of help and that Morgan likes his new house.

Hey Mel,
I bet it was a big relief to have a lot of help. I hope things go well with the unpacking. That is hard as well. You have to find new places for everything and how to organize it and all that kind of stuff. Hope you are doing well.

Thank goodness you're back. Gotta have my fix.

Did moving make you dejunk? What happened to the garage couches.

Can't wait to hear what life on base is like.

I was all excited to see that I had 9 comments. I didn't realize that 4 of them would be identical. :)
