Move In....Don't Mess Around!

So we are apparently getting internet somehow, thanks to Braden. We are almost all moved in, except for a few scattered things back at the old place.

It has been an interesting day, to say the least. Thank goodness we had a reasonable turnout for both moving out and moving in. All the people that came from the old ward were people I called last minute, because we found out Thursday night that the person supposed to help gather some people didn't know he was supposed to. The elders quorum prez thought he had told this person to, but apparently there was a miscommunication. So when Braden called him on Thursday night to ask if he'd gotten anybody, he said, "Um, no, not yet. You want me to call some people?" Uh oh. So I made some calls on Friday and luckily was able to get some people together. And let me clarify, I don't expect anyone to call people...we'd just been told that someone would do it to help, and so when it didn't happen, we were scrambling. We had about 7 people from our new ward to help out, plus Steve and Devon & Teresa (in-laws). Steve and Devon very kindly offered to drive back the U-Haul truck and the parentals' van, respectively, for which we are VERY grateful, because it saved both of us having to go down south again. And we are also grateful for the use of said van, since our car doesn't hold all that much, especially with Jenna in the back seat.

We had thought that Miss Jenna could play in the living room while we are in the office/dining room, but it's looking like that probably won't work. She wants to be exactly where we are. We've blocked off the living with boxes, and we can watch her, but she can't get over the boxes and...she's not too thrilled with that. It's just a few feet away, but she still desperately wants over! :) Oh, wait, she may be getting more used to it. She looks like she's having more fun now. I know I'm having fun crawling around on the CARPET with her!! Hooray carpet!

Pictures to come....

yes, this is the rule of motherhood. no matter what cool things are somewhere else, they always want to be where you are.

unless, of course, you have something that you don't want them to get into. Then it is fine for you to go away.
