Faster Then We Thought

We're all moved in! Some how it all worked out that our stuff arrived in town on the exact day that we were able to move into our new apartment. It all just fell together some how like magic. We must be doing something right for that to happen i think.
It was just about 8 this morning and i was rolling over to look at the clock to see if it wasn't a stupid early hour to be getting out of bed so i could start packing up and get the day going. We still had to get a cashiers check and go over to sign the lease before we could move what little we had with us all in and we were looking forward to a week of sleeping on an air mattress. Then husbands evil annoying phone started ringing. The thing is loud enough to wake the dead. He got up and answered it though, and it was them. The Movers. Our stuff just got into town this morning. "Oh," he said, "we were going to be moving into our apartment this morning". So she asked him to hold for a minute, then gets back on the line to say they could have the stuff there in an hour (!!!????). Forget showers and breakfast, we had to get everything we planned for the day done in a hour so they would have a place to put it. And dang it, we don't get to sleep on an air mattress tonight like we planned....but i think we'll live.
But, some how it all went down without any problems. They brought the BIG truck for some reason (i wish i had taken a picture now that i think of it), and couldn't get it into the complex, but our place is an end unit right next to the road so that worked perfect. They took about 2 hours to bring it all in and set up everything (the bed, my mirror, the dining room table), and then they were done.
We don't have a ton of stuff, a lot of kitchen things more then anything (i wonder why that is? ;), so all the extra stuff fit with room to spare in the back bedroom. I'll get pictures before i start unpacking it all.
i hope to have internet by the end of the week, so then i'll post pictures. Soon...
Now to go unpack...

Wow, I'm so glad everything is working out for you guys. Moving is such a stressful process. You're probably an expert at it by though. I can't wait to see some pictures!

Yeah for real! I'm so glad it went smoothly. Moving is a FREAKING PAIN! I seriously think I'm hiring movers next time, insanely jealous.
