I’m Back!

5 Nov

Hello!  I’m back and ready to start chatting with you again.  It seems like I’ve been away forever, even though it’s only been a few weeks.  I think the trauma of moving warps your memory and temporarily numbs your brain so you forget just how awful it is.

Overall, I have to say the move wasn’t too painful.  The weather could’ve been better…it had been warm, sunny and dry for weeks and then the day I decided to move, it rained.  Luckily, the majority of the move was completed before the steady rain appeared, so my belongings weren’t completely soaked.

The gentlemen that moved my things were very nice and professional, which made me feel like I was in good hands.  For the most part, I was, except for the four broken items that I discovered when putting pieces away in my hutch.

The first shattered piece was disappointing, but by the fourth piece, I was downright angry.  Granted, we did pack the breakables ourselves, so our packing might not have been up to snuff.  However, it was downright insulting when I submitted a claim for four slightly expensive items and received a measly $5.12 back in compensation.  Lesson learned….transport your own fragile items or suck it up and pay to have them pack.  If I had let them do the honors, the items would’ve been covered 100%.

Now the fun part begins….unpacking and figuring out where everything is and where to put them when found.  For the most part, I’m there, it’s just the minor things that are left.  Pictures still need to be hung and items need to be organized, but at least the main part of the move and hassle is over…and that is a great feeling.
