Update #2 here, and #1 here.
Well, we did it and got out of Jacksonville. And what an experience that was.
Two days of pain... I mean packing. Let me see if I can sum it up for you without using explicit language.
So we had two days of moving. The first day we had a team of "26 year professionals" show up to pack our stuff into boxes.
|Don't worry I am a professional...|
And our "professionals" packed our boxes like bags of Doritos (90% air), which meant we had too many to fit. In the end our mattresses and several boxes ended up on the back of the moving truck in a crate.
Unfortunately that was not the end of a long and complicated ordeal (I specifically choose this word over "day". It really hits the essence of my "Escape from Jacksonville")
1- Steam Clean my carpets (which the $35.99 deal on the flyer turned into $225 with all the additional pet stuff, talk about misrepresentation)
2- Final inspection of the house.
When these were arranged it was made clear there would be movers. However, these two things still got set up for the morning because it would be "fine".
I at least got to set up the carpet cleaning again for later in the day. But the home inspection did not occur again. However I was told to leave the keys and such in a drop box at the main office of our rental company.
|Not the actual box, but it might as well have been for all the good it did me.|
So I finally got to Orlando, where things did get better. You can read what Jennifer thought of legoland in the last post.
buy more awesome legos.
It was great because it was super fun for Gabe. He even got to ride a train multiple times, which is one of the truly greatest things in the world to him.
Okay maybe it was a little more like this.
|Perfect wardrobe execution IMO|
|Biggest let down of the day. There is a 10 minute countdown just for some smoke to fizz out. Launching a wet bottlerocket is more exciting.|
