Moving Day

Last night my sister arrived in San Diego with her 10' moving truck in tow and today I helped her move into her new house in LA....sort of.

It was a very long, hot and frustrating day that didn't start off the way either of us had planned; but when is moving day ever fun?

Her best guy friend was kind enough to drive her U-Haul out here from Phoenix while she followed in her car and he was going help us unload it, but he unfortunately had a rough night last night (I'll just leave it at that...and no, he wasn't over served) and needed to fly home this morning. Your dad, still recovering from his ankle sprain stayed home with you and so, that left Leah and me.

I got to drive the U-Haul, which was super fun, but once in LA and knowing full well that we couldn't get her bed, enormous desk, dining room table, or heck, even TV up the two flights of stairs by ourselves, we did what any two savvy women would do and hired two beefy hombres from a Home Depot parking lot. I am 100% confident that we over paid for Ivan and Orlando's help, but who cares, the entire truck was unloaded in under 90 minutes. Oh, and they put her bed together too. Bonus!! I don't know what we would have done without our handy helpers, God bless them.

I think Leah is second guessing her decision to move to southern California, but I hope it's only because today was so stressful and she is running on empty. I hope that she soon realizes that it will take a good 30 days or so to learn her way around her new neighborhood and that before she knows it, things won't seem so foreign. I am super excited for her LA adventure to begin, for her to land a fabulous new job and make new friends. I applaud her for making this move and am thrilled to have her closer.

Leah's new place is great and so are her roommates, who thankfully made themselves scarce while we (I mean, our new friends) moved in.

Once Leah gets settled in, I look forward to taking you to visit her in her new digs.

The best is yet to be.

It was such a long day!! I cannot believe that you actually had the energy to compose this post just now!
I certainly will not be able to forget how wonderful it was to have Ivan and Orlando's help today. I really do not know what we would have done without the help.
Yes, I am second guessing my decision to move to LA a little bit but I think that its just because I was so overwhelmed today with everything and all the driving that we did. I just wish there was a way to fast forward to a month from now. At that point I'll have the job (hopefully), new friends and closer to the ISY friends that live in LA, more comfortable with driving around there and all settled into the house.
I'm glad that you liked the house and my roommates. I look forward to you bringing Lucas by lots!

So, its morning now and it really is true what they say, "sleep on it." I feel so much better now. LA is probably going to kick my ass for awhile but I am GOING to get the hang of it eventually. I was nervous in Phoenix for awhile too..but then suddenly after a few months passed by, I got comfortable with the freeway driving and just got to know my way around. And certain areas near my place in Phoenix weren't the nicest either but I got over it and didn't hang out there often. So, whew, thanks to a great night's sleep, my confidence level is back!
See u soon! Pancakes, anyone? Hahah! : )

Oh you crack me up! Kudos to you for finding Ivan and Orlando to help you! I love self-sufficient women. Welcome to SoCal Leah! I know you'll be happy here, especially being closer to your sister and nephew! It's a new adventure for you and I know you will do well!
