I hope that everyone had a joyful day yesterday. I know that for some Mother's Day is not anticipated with joy for one reason or another. My day was pretty good considering all the stressful events that are swirling around me. The best part of the day was when both boys took unexpected naps after church. I was holding a clingy Harry while doing something on the computer when he conked out. A little while later I noticed that Evan was being awfully quiet and this is what I saw:
The poor kid was so tired that he just fell asleep right there on the floor.
A little update on our weight limit issue. Somehow we have magically been able to loose several thousand pounds of household goods. The new moving company did a walk through on Saturday and had an estimate of 10,000 pounds, but when we were further talking to the guy he slipped down to 9,000 which coincidentally is our maximum weight limit. We are keeping this company because at the very least they don't seem to be as greedy about cheating us. Just to be safe are planning on getting rid of our couches (something that we had been thinking about doing any way) and some rickety book cases that we already have replacements for in the form of a not put together yet book case that my husband and his father cut out last time we visited. We are also trashing a really old and horrible dresser that was pretty much only good as a fish tank stand.
The previous moving company was not very happy at loosing our business. They called my husband at home (something I am not sure they should have done since we had officially been moved to another company) to try and talk it over. When my husband tried to quiz them about their estimates he found out that they had some pretty crazy ideas about how much things weigh. One of the most outrageous was for our fish tanks. They are basic glass tanks, nothing fancy really except that the moving company things that they are lined with lead or something. The estimate for the weight of the tank upstairs was 100 lbs empty, which is crazy considering that I carried it upstairs all by my lonesome. I am not a weight lifter and if that tank had really been 100 lbs I would have never been able to lift it all alone. I am so not sad that we axed this company.
