The Big Move
The truck was sixteen feet long and to be honest with you I was scared that not everything was going to fit, but since Mitch is a master packer(watch it) we got it all in. Dru, Jake, Dan and I headed to Saint Louis after stopping at a local Arbey's for lunch. (Of course you can't really consider it lunch at 3:30 in the afternoon.)
We arrived at Dru's parents a little before 9. I think. To be honest with you it's all a blur. Donna had din din waiting so we scarfed that down, unloaded the furniture that wasn't going with us, sat up and talked to Mustoe until 1 in the morning then went to bed. Because we went to bed so late we weren't out of there until 9:30 in the morning. I decided that I was ok with that and let it go. (Typically, I like to leave early in the morning.)
Dan and Jake are studs. I don't know if you knew that but they are. We had the entire truck unloaded in about 2 and a half hours. It was great. (This is the funnny part.) Since Dan and Jake so graciously gave of their time to help Dru and I move we planned on renting them a car for their return trip. I honestly didn't think that it would be over $250. Perhaps a little pre-trip research would have done some good. If you plan on renting a car for a one way trip from state to state...DON'T! They want to charge us the cost of the rental plus (dun dun dun) $700 bones. That's right, a dollar per mile on top of the car rental. Well, to make a long story even longer, we were able to find them each a plane ticket from Louisvile (about 45 minutes away) to Kansas City for $116.00. Can't beat that.
Our town home is awesome and we picked up a four year old queen size bed for $100 bucks, box springs and all. Don't hesitate to call, we've got a place for you to stay anytime.
I'll have more a little later. Bye the way, I am going to be publised on TheOoze. That's exciting. They are going to use two posts...The Ins and Outs...and...I'm Tired. Check them out.
Good times, good times.
Come on - take the plung.
