Settling Into Life in Detroit

Our family has been in Michigan for a few weeks now, and I feel like we’re settling into normal life. Well, as much as possible. November was a month of transition. Packing, driving cross country, starting a new job, finding my way around, and trying to catch my breath. We were fortunate to be able […]

I’m Moving to Michigan

Last night I updated my Facebook status, and mentioned our family’s move to Michigan at the end of the post. The general reply? “Whaaaat? No! You’re Moving? Did I miss your announcement?!?” Although I’ve been talking about our upcoming move for several months, I guess it’s never been official because I didn’t make a big […]

Another Moving Fiasco – Lost and Beheaded

It’s been just under a week since our moving truck arrived, and much of my time has been spent unpacking boxes and reacquainting myself with my wardrobe and kitchen wares. But as we’ve been unpacking, a few items we love haven’t turned up. Most specifically, my Dad’s old antique 1960’s acoustic guitar, my purple bass […]

The Moving Truck Came! Our Stuff is Here!

For the first time in 7 months, we have a full house. Despite all the lies and disappointments, I have to admit that I was really excited when the moving truck pulled up in front of our house at 8:00 am Tuesday. Sure, it was a month later than we’d originally anticipated, but it did […]

Another Moving Fiasco: Part 4

Today is moving delivery day. Or it was supposed to be. Earlier this month, we decided to have the movers bring our stuff, despite the contract issues and having no idea how we’d pay the balance. I asked how quickly it could get there…Rob said cross-country transit usually takes 3-5 days (which to me is […]

Another Moving Fiasco: Part 3

Phew! I finally made some headway in MovingGate 2009-2010. It took bombarding Moving 1 with voice mails and emails for a few days before Rob would actually accept a call from me (I was really getting sick of the receptionist whispering to him that I was on the phone, thinking she’d placed the call on […]

Another Moving Fiasco : Part 2

Ah, the continuing moving saga of the Bullock family. Part one of the Atlanta moving fiasco is here. I was hoping that after two weeks I’d have more good news to report on the move, but we’re still in a stalemate. We’d hoped to have the issue resolved quickly, and to have our belongings delivered […]

Yet Another Moving Fiasco

The storage unit in Decatur, GA that has held our earthly possessions since June When Rosie and I headed out to Utah in June, all we brought with us was what fit into my Camry. We packed pretty creatively, so we haven’t been totally barren. Unfortunately, most of the clothes we brought with us were […]

Made It!

After four solid days of packing, and three solid days of driving, I’ve made it to the beautiful Wasatch Front. We traveled over 1900 miles through Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Colorado, and Utah. I’m feeling a bit road weary, so I’m glad to be stretched out on my parents’ couch. There’s still much […]

Deja Vu

The majority of the last few days have spent packing like a maniac. Yes, you heard that right packing. I’m moving again. And I was just there six short months ago, preparing to move from Michigan to Georgia. It’s like deja vu…the same stress, the same mad box collecting, the same sorting, the same stuff..but […]
