Wow, what a busy week it's been! On Monday, the packers arrived to pack up all our household goods! And boy, did it take them awhile! Not that we have alot of stuff, but there were only 2 of them, and they did a very thorough job (which is a good thing!). But they were there from 9:00 am to 9:30 pm. What a long day!
Tuesday, the Big Truck showed up at 8:00 am, and all our stuff was loaded up. By 2:00, the Big Truck was on it's way to Minneapolis:
We headed out on Wednesday morning to Pittsburgh. (For the record, sleeping on the floor sucked. Royally. It was one of the worst sleep nights we've ever had).
After visiting the puppy dogs for a day (they were happy to see us at first, but then were reallly really pissed that we had left them! Even Spike had a few choice words for us!), we took off on Thursday morning for Minneapolis.
We left at 7:00 am, with Plan A of driving straight through (14+ hours), and Plan B of stopping in Janesville, WI (8 hours) and finishing the trip on Friday.
We got to Janesville around 4:00 CT, and decided to keep going! So we did :p We got into Minneapolis around 9:30 Thursday night.
On Friday, we looked at several shrot-term, furnished corporate apartments, and decided to take one. WE got moved into that yesterday, thank God. The hotel room was SOOO small and nasty. The apartment is 1,000 times better and roomier!
On Friday afternoon, we met up with our Realtor, and looked at houses from 2:30 - 8:00! We must have looked at about 15 houses - but nothing we really liked. Today, we were back out with her and looked at about 10 more. We found a few we'd think about, but nothing so far that screams BUY ME! So more tomorrow! Our realtor is being quite accommodating!
Those are all the updates for now. I look forward to a decent night's sleep tonight.....
