After our late evening waiting for the approvals and the lease to be signed, we started the moving process early today. We had ordered furniture and scheduled its delivery for today -- hence our anxious for the lease to be signed. We left our temporary apartment early because the furniture company gave us a 7 to 11 am window for delivery. They arrived at 7:30 am and it took about 2 hours for them to delivery and setup a bed, dining room table and chairs, sofa, loveseat, end tables, and night stands.
I then headed back to our old apartment to start moving our things to our new "home." I had just arrived when the "traveling Elder," three missionaries who work on the missionaries apartments arrived to help move our mattresses. It was great to have their help because I could never have done it by myself -- down 2 stories at the old apartment and up 1 story at the new.
We then spent the rest of the day moving our clothes, etc. that we brought with us from Utah. Even though we worked at it for several hours, we still haven't completely moved everything. Our new apartment is about 6 miles from our old one, so we had considerable driving time involved.
We are glad to finally have our housing situation settled, although we are certainly not settled in. But there is light at the end of the tunnel.
