We don't have our truck yet. We found one about 2 weeks ago—a Ford F350, Dually, Diesel 7.3 engine. I've been trying to pick it up since we found it, and I keep being told by the person/dealer? selling it to us that it will be ready "tomorrow"—but each time I call "tomorrow" to check on it, it's not ready for some reason or another. The truck is physically *ready* for us to pick up now—all the work he wanted to do on it has been done, but he doesn't have the title in his hands, so we've been waiting for the title arrive in the mail from the bank. He said he should have it today at 2PM. For some reason, I'm not entirely hopeful that he'll really have it.
It's Thursday. We were hoping to get out of here yesterday, but obviously that did not happen. The owner of the self storage place where we were staying needed us to be out by Wednesday, as some town inspectors had found out that people were living on his commercial property. Because we didn't get our truck in time, I had to ask my dad to help us move the house. Thankfully he was available to do it. We, and a friend of ours and his camper are now parked in the front yard of James' mom's house. I'm so VERY thankful that they agreed to let us stay here for a few days. Otherwise, I'm not sure where we'd be.
Moving yesterday felt rushed. The things inside, weren't secured enough for even the short journey, so some things fell over and there was a mess, but I'm not sure anything broke and it cleaned up pretty easily. I have a better idea now of what needs to be secured for the long journey to Texas… which hopefully begins soon.
