The best news and the worst move.

I don't know if any of you have moved recently, but it is the worst experience in the world. When Ryan and I first got back from our honeymoon my sweet family had moved the majority of our furniture and my Mom "set up house" before we had the chance to lift a finger. We slowly moved the remainder of our things to our tiny one bedroom apartment. Just before Christmas we got all of our decorations up and our house was set up how we wanted it. Ryan could finally relax and I could finally stop pestering him. A month later we got a call from my Parents asking if we were interested in living in their condo in Orem. Um, three bedrooms? Two bathrooms? YES PLEASE. Ryan wasn't too happy when I told him we had to do it all over again.

This recent move however, was a complete different ordeal. We found out we were moving around the 10th of January, however we had no clue when we would actually be moving in. The real kicker is, my sister Rachel was moving into our one bedroom when we were out, and guess where we were moving? Yup, you guessed it. Into her old apartment. We had to do the old switcharoo, and if that's not enough, my sweet Mother and soon to be landlord wanted to get the carpets cleaned before we moved in. Whoa Whoa Whoa, so not only did we have to switch apartments but we had both had to be living in the one bedroom apartment for a day while the carpets got cleaned?! Yes, you betcha. We moved all of Rachel's things into our family room while we packed our things up. Luckily we covered the tile at our new place with furniture or we never would have made it. Rachel's old roommate was out and we moved in right away. Late Wednesday afternoon we started packing. With the help of my lovely family, a few trucks and Ryans brothers we finished the last load before 10:00 PM. Needless to say it was miserable going back and forth in the muddy snow as I am sure everyone would agree. Ryan and I are still setting up house, but you can bet your bottom dollar when the house is all dolled up I WILL be posting pictures!
