Yesterday the movers actually showed up! I know, can you believe it??? I really couldn't at first..lol. There was only two of them and it literally took them half the day to get everything in my house and get my furniture set up. They were pretty nice...but one of the movers was a stinky Russian guy (Not that I have anything against Russians, but this dude smelled hard core!) and I could barely understand a word he said! That made things a little confusing when I was trying to check off the inventory sheet, (cause I could barely understand what numbers he was saying) but we got through it all eventually.
Most of my stuff is in tact, except for my vacuum cleaner...which I am royally pissed about. We just bought it in February and I was so happy that it was going to be here, because I love to have my house vacuumed every week, and it drives me nuts not to have one. So of course its just my luck that my vacuum was the one thing that really got messed up. I don't know what the heck they did to it, because the driver wrapped it up and padded it (I saw him do it in CA) but when they unwrapped it here it was falling apart! It literally won't stay put together...and its only made up of three pieces, but the handle on the top of the vacuum wont stay connected to the bottom piece, and the container for the dirt keeps falling out as well!!!! Grrrr...I think its missing a screw or something but I won't have time to fix it for awhile. If that doesn't work I'm gonna have to file a claim and try and get reimbursed for that vacuum.
I can say however, that I am very thankful that the rest of my big furniture made it here in tact! I was so worried about my dresser or mirror getting broken, and my bed frame. Thank God it made it here safely, and last night I got to sleep on my amazing pillow top mattress!! I haven't slept that good in almost a month!! Last night by the time the movers left it was 6 pm and I was exhausted...I only had time to unpack about five boxes and ended up staying up until 12:30 am. I am not digging how little our kitchen cabinets are and the fact that we don't really have a place to put any of our food that doesn't go in the refrigerator. We hardly have any room for all our pots and pans and dishes, so I'm gonna have to move things around and see how I can make it work.
After my crazy day with the movers I decided to go to the commissary to pick up some things I needed for this weekend. That was a big mistake and I can honestly say I have a love/hate relationship with the commissary!!!!! I will tell you all about my commissary nightmare later on today, but for now I am off to take Tulip for a walk and run some errands! I am also super stoked because we are getting our house phone set up tonight and I am expecting a call from my hubby later on tonight!!! :) Its been over two weeks since we talked on the phone, and I can't wait to hear his voice!! :) Anyway thanks for reading and I hope you all have a beautiful day! ♥
