We Made It!

We made it to Phoenix! Well, Gilbert, Arizona actually.  I apologize in advance if this is not my best post but I am pretty exhausted, surrounded by boxes and lucky to have an Internet connection!

The movers showed up on Friday to load all our stuff on a huge truck!

This is the inside of the truck with about one third of our stuff in there.

The doors had to stay open and the A/C was about 100 degrees.  This was the temperature inside the house by 12:30pm.


And by 3:34pm when they were finally done, it was 93 degrees inside the house.
Two words, HOT and SWEATY.

We thoroughly cleaned the house and were Arizona bound by 11:00am Saturday.  The movers showed up bright and early this morning to do the move-in.  They moved most of our stuff into the house and put the rest in a storage unit.

This is Johnny, he is AWESOME!  The pictures are blurry because he moves so fast!

I really have to take the time to let you know about Oakley Relocation out of Poway, California.  They handled both of our moves (CA-NV and NV-AZ).  They did such a great job, both times!  There were no surprises and everything went as promised.  Jim was our Relocation Consultant who helped arrange all of the details and Johnny was our driver.  He doesn't just drive.......he organizes, manages, moves your stuff and drives the truck.  He handles the move and the laborers on both ends.  He is there when your stuff goes on the truck and when it comes off.  He is pleasant to work with and flexible if there are any hiccups (like you forgot to pull your wedding picture of the wall and safely pack it in a box).  This may seem like I am promoting them, well, I am.  Not because I'm getting any kind of kick back (because I'm not)  but because they deserve it for being a reputable company that delivers as promised!  I have to admit it, service like this doesn't come cheap.  But if you want cheap, you should read some of the horror stories about moving companies.

So that's it, we made it.  Here is where it all begins.  First step, register Madison for school and then we will go from there......slowly unpacking as we reinvent ourselves!

Thanks, Dweej! Right now the place is a mess......I think it is gonna take us a while to get set up.

The worse is over! Moving is close to the top of my list of things I hate to do. Glad you and the movers made it to AZ safely. Will be anxious to read your blog and hear how everyone is settling in.
