We Made It!!!

Our move to California is over but the moving in has just begun. It took us about a week to get everything packed up in our house, clean it, have a garage sale, etc. We got our U-Haul almost 2 days later then we were supposed to so that set us back but at least it came to us. They first told us we were going to have to get it in Wyoming (yeah right!) but thankfully we didn't have to.

We got in around 6:00p.m. on Friday night and unloaded everything with some help which was greatly appreciated. I don't know how we did it but the moving van was empty about 3 1/2 hours later. There have been a lot of glitches and it's going to take a while to figure everything out. Ryan's utility trailer doesn't fit in the garage, it's about 9 feet tall and the garage door is only 7. Then he had his trailer unhitched parked on the street and got a parking ticket. I guess they're breaking us in to California. Our condo is nice but was not clean, really deep cleaned, at all. I've been spending all weekend trying to clean around the mess that is our boxes and furniture because nothing is where its supposed to be. Ryan has been putting the furniture where it needs to go as best as it can be done right now, and doing the technical stuff like getting our internet and dish set up.

It's going to take a few weeks to clean and get everything where it needs to be, but once that's all in order it should be good. I'm getting used to the fact that I once again live in California, and now I live in a condo with a detached garage where I have to park on the street and walk a few minutes to get back home, but hopefully it'll feel like home soon. At least I have time to get organized, and then the job hunt will begin. I'll post some pics once it looks more like home, not a place full of boxes and unorganized stuff!

A parking ticket?! I don't think I've ever been to California without getting a ticket of some sort for doing nothing obviously illegal. Glad you guys made it there safely
