What can I say? So far, our packers/movers have been fantastic.
After endless amounts of time griping about the airline people, the electrician (I don’t remember if I blogged much about him or not), and a million other things/people, it feels so good to be able to say that the movers are fantastic.
Today they packed up my entire basement, garage, half bath and family/school room. It would have taken me at least six months to accomplish what these two guys did in about 7 hours.
Tomorrow they will finish packing the house, and Wednesday they will load up their big, orange truck, and we will be out of here.
Rumor has it this house might even close this week. Of course, last week rumor had it that it would close that week, and the week before . . . you get the picture. Apparently it is now out of underwriting hell, but somebody just noticed that they don’t have a copy of the buyer’s social security card. Hmm . . . we just bought a house and I don’t remember giving anyone a copy of my social security card . . . but maybe that’s because we did a different kind of loan?
Anyway, they just realized they don’t have it, and the buyer has lost his social security card, so now they are trying to come up with an alternate form of acceptable proof of identification. At least, that is what the real estate agent is telling us.
Have I ever told you that, not always, but as a general rule, I don’t particularly trust what real estate agents tell me?
But anyway, the movers? FAN.TAS.TIC!
And Quinn seems to be getting over the no napping thing. His naps aren’t overly long, but he’s taking them again. He’s not fighting sleep so much. I think having McH home for the weekend really helped him. He is fond of his daddy.
Also, I have seen a marked increase in his leg strength. Quinn’s, that is, not McH’s. Even though he could pull himself up to stand when he came home, he was a bit wobbly. And even though he had started cruising a bit, he was still a bit wobbly. I don’t mean wobbly in an off balance way, either. He still doesn’t have tons of balance. He just didn’t seem to have the muscle tone to stand for long. Now he does. Today he explored more than any day since he’s been home, and he was pulling himself up all over the place.
And the giggles! My mother took some video of it. As soon as I get it I will have to post it.
What a little travelogue of a blog post. Hopefully in the next month or so things will settle down and I’ll be able to focus a bit more. It’s been months since anyone has threatened to sue me for causing them to spew a beverage all over their computer keyboard. I’ve got to get back on my game.
And George, if you’re out there, Tewt the Newt says it’s all almost over now.
