Happy 4th of July!
It was been a VERY BUSY month for us so I have a lot of blogging to catch up on.
(The following posts are everything we did in the month of June)
We left Provo June 22nd and began driving to Forth Worth, Texas. Tyler in BigBird (Penske Moving Truck) and me in the Grandam with Austin. We have now been here for a week and 2 days. We pulled in last Friday, June 25 at 5:30 PM.
We had some people from our new ward already at our apartment ready to unload. The office closed at 6:00 PM so we hurried over to get the keys. As we opened the door the place smelled of fresh paint and there was no electricity. Which also means NO AIR CONDITIONING. That is a death sentence here! Especially for ME who is not used to humidity.
What happened was: they put us in a different unit than what we originally agreed upon and this one did not have the electricity turned on yet...Since it was Friday, that meant we couldn't get someone to turn anything on until Monday at the earliest! So we got all our stuff in, negotiated with the manager to not pay rent for the rest of June, and stayed with one of the people who helped us move for 2 nights, and then at Tyler's cousin's house on Sunday night.
We had a lot of fun at both places and are very grateful to both families for taking us in. We have now unpacked every box and are just getting decorations up on the walls. We love our new place!
