If you want something done right....do it yourself!!

Well we finally made it to Las Vegas, but it was quite the fiasco. In FEBRUARY we called NATIONWIDE RELOCATION and scheduled for them to move us on May 10. Well the big moving day came along and no movers showed up, nor did they show up for the next two days. And isn't it great that a moving company wouldn't answer their phones on a weekend. So Monday rolls around and after Tim yelled at about 115 different people, it was discovered that no one even scheduled the move until 2 days before we were supposed to leave and therefore it would delay the move about 4-5 days. Well thanks for telling us Nationwide and thanks to Jared, the big dip we were working with, for not doing your job and being a complete schmuck. What a joke for a company. We scurried to U-Haul, begged some people to help us, and luckily made it down here without many more problems. Tim's boss even let us stay a night in his fancy smancy high rise on the strip to help ease our frustrations. But seriously I about had an ulcer over the whole thing. I will never ever ever schedule for someone to move me again. It's just not worth it. It's sad, but I've really learned in life that you just can't trust too many people. On a happier note we love our home here and we love hanging out with the family we've got here and Tim's job is great so I guess it turned out alright in the end. I'll post some pics soon. One of our favorite past times so far is playing Rock Band with Tim's big family. It's pretty addicting as I'm sure some of you know!

Oh my gosh! Working with people can be so frustrating sometimes...especially when you are depending on them for something important like moving! As if moving wasn't stressful enough. I'm glad everything worked out in the end. Hopefully it's not too hot yet. Keep in touch!

Talk about anxiety attack times 100. I dont know what I would have done, here you are feeling good about the moving people then they turn out to be pompus morons and youre stuck with all the dirty work. aaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!! Im very happy that your move did turn out well though and also that you have family so close, thats wonderful. :)

Goodluck unpacking, thats the "fun" part of moving.
