Pre-Move Survey

Well, Mr Coleman America showed up today to do our pre-move survey. If you have never done this then you just don't know what you are missing out on, seriously! For those who may not have had this experience this is when the person from the moving company comes out and walks through your house and annotates what you are moving. The key word here IS moving. This is so that when the packing crew shows up they will know how many boxes to bring. As we walked through the house Mr Coleman America kept asking, "is this going?" over and over again. Don't forget, I did say we are moving...hence the reason for his visit, are you following me here? :o)

I am still always amazed with this part of the moving walk from room to room and Mr Coleman America ask over and over again "is this going?" and you answer one of the following:
  • "yes sir"
  • "why yes it is"
  • "certainly will be"
  • "definitely"
  • "yep"
By the time you have walked through all 12 rooms or so of your house AND the garage you have been ask "is this going?" 647,322,976 times! The answer continues to be "yes," but you are trying to come up with different ways to say that cause you feel like he is tired of hearing it. But that's fine Mr. Coleman America you just keep asking and I will keep answering you and when we are all done you will have figured out that is is ALL going!

I realize that there are times when not everything is moved but seriously the amount of times this question was asked and answered today was over the top. It was soooo funny, but then again it wasn't. It was nearly absurd and by the time it was over I wanted to shake him and say it's ALLLLLLL going buddy, except for what we didn't show you!

Oh, they joys of moving :o)

I remember having those same conversations when we were preparing to PCS.

So, that leaves only one question. Will your blog be going? Tee hee hee. I had to ask.
