THE SAGA CONTINUES

Sat. 12/30/16 , 10:00 p.m.

Aaahhhhhh!!!  TEAM ALLEN…???…???…???…is STILL struggling to survive Hurricane Matthew, folks!!!  You MUST come along on another trip to “JILL’S WORLD”.  You will NOT believe this “CRAZY” day, folks!!!  Fri., 12/30/16 has been ABSOLUTELY “CRAZY”- beyond-belief!!!  I SIMPLY canNOT make this stuff up!!!  Ready???  READY!!!

BAM!!!  Now, “THIS” is moving weekend…AGAIN, folks!!!  Move #5 since evacuating our home for Hurricane Matthew back in October.  :/  I “THOUGHT”…???…???…???…things would go smoothly.  I scheduled the sofa-sectional to be delivered to our new rental home today and the beds tomorrow.  Yep, We must be out of this current rental by 10:00a.m. tomorrow, 12/31/16!!!  Sofa and beds scheduled for delivery.  CHECK!!!  What could possibly go wrong, huh???!!!???!!!???!!!  EVERYTHING was scheduled as needed, right???  WRONG!!!  🙁

Chris received an early phone call, 12:00 p.m.-ish, that the delivery truck was waiting to deliver our “stuff,” so I raced over to the townhouse…NO delivery truck “THERE”!!!  Hhhmmm…Chris called a few moments later to inform me that they were waiting at our home-home.  NOT the rental home where we were in need of furniture…in the unfurnished townhouse rental!!!  WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!!  Why???  How???  I was a bit confused, but gave them directions to the townhouse and waited patiently…  :/

As soon as the delivery truck appeared I became even more confused.  “THIS” was NOT the sofa-sectional store delivery truck!!!  “THIS” was the appliance store delivery truck…delivering the 5 appliances we purchased back in Nov.!!!  Appliances we will need for our return “HOME,” but we do NOT need them here at this townhouse, another temporary home.  Our “HOME”-home is NOT ready for the appliances to be installed yet!!!  Aaahhhhhh!!!  Are you kidding me???!!!???!!!???!!!  Long story short…I followed the delivery truck back over to our home and they placed all 5 appliances into the garage to be installed by Grace Construction when the time is right.  :/  Whew!!!  “IT IS WELL,” Right ???  WRONG!!!

Our garage door broke as we tried to close it!!!  WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!!  Are you kidding me???!!!???!!!???!!!  :/  I quickly phoned Bruce from Grace Construction with this new-bit of “CRAZY” news…as “THE SAGA CONTINUES”!!!  Sorry, Bruce!!!  That poor man received 2 phone calls from me within 1 hour, folks!!!  1-seeking permission to store the appliances in our garage with all the construction in progress and 2-the garage door is now broken…AGAIN (it’s 3rd ” break” since “MATT”) and will need to be fixed…AGAIN!!!  UGH!!!  :/  “IT IS WHAT IT IS,” folks!!!  :/  :/

Thank God, most boxes and “things” were moved over to this new rental property Thurs. evening by “TEAM BLUE”.   WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  GO TEAM BLUE!!!  A few  more trips were made today, Friday, before Chase had to work.  BAM!!!  We are so ready to get out of this temporary rental home and over to our next AND LAST temporary rental home before  returning  “HOME”-home!!!

HA!!!  So then about 4:30p.m, Friday afternoon…???…???…???…we received a call regarding delivery of the sofa-sectional at the townhouse!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  I raced over there so, So, SO excited..ONLY to realize that I had ordered the pieces of the sectional BACKWARDS!!!  Accidentally!!!  WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!!  OH  NO!!!  Please say it isn’t so!!!  The 2 end pieces need to be reversed, folks!!!  It appears that “LEFT” is “RIGHT” and “RIGHT” is “LEFT”when ordering pieces of a sectional!!!  I guess.  :/. Oopse, another little “bump” in the road of our “JOURNEY” back “HOME”-home!!!  Chris, Danielle, and I were so over it by this time!!!  :/  :/  :/  “Lucky” Chase was at work and missed the…???…???…???…”excitement”.

I am so, So, SO thankful that each of us, The Allenwalds (like the Grizzwalds) have been able to chuckle a little-bit harder.  And Harder.  AND HARDER…with each and every “BUMP” encountered throughout this entire “CRAZY” day in “JILL’S WORLD”!!!  NO KIDDING, folks!!!  Chris “ROARED” with laughter when I phoned to inform him that the appliances were being delivered…”YEP, the appliances we are NOT yet ready for”!!!  Just a “CRAZY” mix-up on “OUR” part…back when we purchased them.  OH THANK-YOU, JESUS!!!  Chris roared with laughter on the other end of the phone!!!  WHEW!!!  I, thankfully, joined right in…roaring with laughter, as well!!!

Boy, what a crazy, Crazy, CRAZY day, folks!!!  Most everything that could have gone wrong…???….???…???…DID go wrong!!!

10:52 p.m.  Right Here.  RIGHT NOW!!!  My body aches…AGAIN!!!  Time for bed, folks.  “TEAM ALLEN” must be out of this rental home by 10:00 a.m. tomorrow morning.  PLUS…???…???…???…I “GET” to work, as well!!!  WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!  This will surely be THE BEST NEW YEAR’S EVE EVER!!!  😉

GO TEAM!!!  WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!

P.H.P., folks.  People Helping People.

Give the BEST of yourself for “JUST” today…”EVERY” day!!!

ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!!  AMEN.
