It has been 11 days since our stuff was picked up by the moving truck and we left Chicago. We are exhausted from horrible trips to Philadelphia, followed by living in an empty apartment for over a week. We’ve been told that our stuff will arrive on Sunday morning at 10:00 [...]

Camping in the new place, a meme, and 80’s Sunday all mooshed in a really big ball

Wow, where to begin? We’re in Philadelphia and have been since Sunday. Our stuff still is not here. As of yesterday it was scheduled to arrive tonight.

Get Ready For 80’s Sunday
