Three down and they are all moved!

Category: Daily Happenings | Posted: Tue Mar 09, 2010 2:00 pm

The third mobile home was moved yesterday and I think the men moving it were very happy to have it here. We decided by noon it wasn't coming so we went into town and had a sandwich and went to the library and stopped at the thrift store. It was nearly three when we started for home. Yep! You are right! The movers were stuck on the corner where we had to turn to our house. No way around them. No other way home. We sat and waited. They finally had to pull past the corner and back it across the corner yard. They backed it the other mile and a little to the lot. It was drizzling rain and not a nice afternoon. I bet if they hadn't started it moving they would just have liked to have left it right in the middle of everything. They parked it in it's place and left. I expect they will be around later to do the setup work on it. It's going to be raining the rest of the week but maybe next week the utility work can begin. Tammy said she'd been working on this since October and she can't wait for it to be over. But, just because all the homes are moved doesn't mean it's over. There is still lots of things to be done. The work is still on-going. It's going to be too wet on our lot this morning because it's at the bottom of the slope. We are going to have to get some rock for the driveway and get some plants growing to keep from sinking into the ground. It seems to be mainly sand so lots of additives, too.
I could use a pair of knees that work better but I expect I'll make do with what I have.

I'll be waiting on your blog "Open House". I know you are so happy things are moving along. Of course mother nature doesn't always cooperate. But you will be in your new home before you know it. ;>)

I empathize with you, Dooley. It will be worth it when the setup is done. Be gentle with the knees and back. They keep you upright! Good luck with everything.

What a saga this is turning out to be, Dooley.

I hope they can round things off sooner rather than later.

I think Mother Nature is trying to remind you to be easy on your knees! She's on your side.
