Oh yes my friends, madness it was! We arrived at the new house early yesterday morning when the movers got there, to find out the air conditioning had not been officially turned on for the first time so we had no air. This may not be a big deal for some, but in August, in Mississippi, it was brutal. The heat index was well over 100, and I felt so bad for the poor movers. We opened windows and had fans running, but it was still 92 degrees in the house.
The movers were excellent and I would highly recommend them to anyone on the MS gulf coast that needs to move!
The rest of the things we had lined up that day…not so much. So, the A/C guy shows up around 1:00, and we finally have air…but since it was 92 in the house it took until 4:00 pm to get it down to the mid 80’s.
AT&T was supposed to come but were no shows, so we called and the more than unhelpful person on the phone didn’t tell us anything and said they would have someone call us back. Hours later we find out some line has been cut and no one was coming. (So my question is WHY didn’t they call to tell us this instead of just not showing up?)
The people from the gas company were supposed to come set up our meter, also a no show. We explained to them we had no meter even though her computer screen told her that the tech read the meter….which we told her was not possible since we didn’t have a meter!
So it was definitely a very eventful day with a few kinks, and I am just hoping they can get the internet going in the next few days or I am up a creek.
We didn’t even start with the unpacking, it took all day to get everything off the truck. Those poor guys were slowed down so much by heat. Between the three of them and then three of us (me, Bobby, and my mom) we went through an entire 24 pack of water in less than six hours.
As I posted on Instagram, this picture pretty much sums up our day,
Bobby goes back to work tomorrow, and mom and I will be left with the task of starting to unpack…which will be interesting because most of the stuff in boxes….I have no idea where I want it!
I know we will eventually get through it all, it was just a little overwhelming for one day. So, we survived, but still have a ton to do. However we are excited to finally be getting settled into our new home! Please hang with me as I have no idea what my internet situation will be like over the next few days.
QOTD: Least favorite part of moving? Ever had someone be a no show to an appointment?
