As Dory says....Just Keep Drinking!!!
What IS the best part of the move for you? I think I'm in it now...unpacking. Honestly, I thought the worst was loading...oh no! The humidity and heat got to Don and I and we nearly collapsed during the unloading of the beds, a desk, a few chairs and a small table or two. Seriously, my heart was pounding in the heat. I know about drinking lots of fluids and gatorade. I drank nearly 3 gallons of water and gatorade and had one very tiny restroom break. The rest as was sweating it out. I am not kidding you when I say I walked up and down the stairs 23 times that day...I kept a tally sheet. Now remember...3rd FLOOR!!!!! I've got buns of steel now...just kidding. I have to say though. The men from our new ward who came to help us bring our items home were fabulous. Our ward has a core group of people who've lived in this area for years and then there are the med students who travel in and out of the ward on a constant basis. The med students rallied for us and helped us bring our thigns home. They made a chain and passed the boxes from person to peson so they didn't have to walk up and down the stairs all night either. One of the final items to reach its way upsatirs was our big screen tv. They had no idea what they were carrying as it was wrapped, but we unwrapped it as they put it down on the entertainment center. You would've thought it was manna from heaven. Their eyes grew big and silly grins spread across their faces. I am indeed grateful for them. AND as a gift to show my gratitude I told them they were welcome to come watch college/monday night football on our tv as long as they chipped in on the chips and salsa. Now my job is to unpack...unpack as if there is no tomorrow!!!
Update of job hunt 2009:
I received word from Bobby that the interviews are being closed down today for the Data Entry position. I would love to work in that close knit family The benefits are truly amazing and the people are phenomenol!!! I also did and interview over at Six Flags which I aced! I am not saying it was the best interview ever, but I AM saying I passed the interview and they told me I was being moved on to the next level of interviews with cash control. We'll see how I do on that one!!!
