    Default Yeah, finally moved

    Hey everyone, I'm happy to say I'm finally moved, but not without a lot of sh- -. We had the move from HE double hockey sticks. We started with picking up the truck, and them telling us it had been cancelled, even after reserving 2 weeks prior and re confirming with them the day before. We didn't get our truck until the afternoon. When we got to our new house, hubby parked down the complex a little ways to allow our helpers to park their cars. When he tried to restart the truck, to back up to the front door to unload, the truck wouldn't start. We had to unload and heave the furniture through our complex. Finally somebody from u Haul came and gave us a boost, and said the truck was leaking oil, so topped it up. We unloaded and finished at 11:30pm, and we went to return the truck, we got on the highway, and 10 minutes before we got back, the truck started billowing black smoke, we couldn't see the truck at all. We were pulled over by the police, and told we weren't allowed to continue driving. We again called the u haul and explained, the First Lady was such a Bitch, she basically told us there was nothing we can do and deal with it, she told us she was disconnecting, and hung up on us. We called again and got a different lady, she was really nice, and apologized, she told us that was unacceptable, and we wouldn't get charged for the move. The only problem was is that head office is in Texas, and they would send a mobile mechanic unit to fix the truck or tow it, but it would take 2 to 4 hours. We were stuck in an industrial area with factories, and cold and dark. Thank goodness my daughter and son in law had followed us, and they had their car. We sat in there with the heat on, and my poor little 6 year old grandson asleep in the back. They didn't get to us until 3:30 in the morning, and we didn't get home until almost 6:00 am. We didn't fully finish our move, as we had one more load, so the next day working on about 3 hours sleep, u haul gave us another truck for free, and we didn't have to lay for the first one, but we had to finish our move. Through all this, my son who has bi polar, and was very stressed, wasn't handling things very well, and I thought he was going to have a break down. My hubby is so tired, and we just need to relax now, and sleep for a week. Lol. The phone company came yesterday to hook up phone and Internet, but wasn't able to as something was wrong with the wires, so is coming back on Monday to hook up phone and Internet, I'm at Tim Hortons right now using their free wifi, but don't know when I'll have access again, so it might be a while before I can get back on EBN, just wanted to let you guys know how we did. Thank you everyone for all my Bully gifts, and well wishes. It was such a nice surprise when I opened my mail, and found 7 gifts. I'll try and check in again when I can, but won't have my own Internet until Monday.

    Sorry to hear you guys went through such a grueling time; moving is such a pain in the posterior plumbing. Good luck and enjoy your new home.

    What a crazy move! Hope the new home brings you many blessings. My parents lived in Calgary for a few years, Tim Hortons was awesome! Whenever mom came home I made her bring me some timbits!
