Worst Move To Date

What should have been a very simple and short move has turned into nothing but problems. We got to  our new house Sunday evening and the water should have been turned on the previous Friday. It was not done until Wed which resulted in us going to a hotel for 2 nights. Our household goods should have been delivered no later than Wednesday. We find out Wednesday afternoon that not only has our stuff not left KS, there is no driver assigned to it so it wasn't going anywhere. After some heated phone conversations with the moving company, they may get it to us by the end of this next week. Not happy at all. So we are camping in our new house. And by camping I mean Macen now asks to be excused from the box and I crushed graham crackers with a bottle of beer. We have made attempts to buy office furniture and a washer/dryer but no one wants to deliver those until weeks later either. We didn't have a good week overall and the alcohol has been flowing. We've been very fortunate with all our moves. It is to be expected things will get broken (it happens every move) but it has never been anything major. I guess with as many times as we have moved, we were due for a crappy one.

We have managed to get the backyard set up the way we want it. We added the tiki god, a soccer goal and pitch back, added a fire pit, weeded the flower bed and planted veggies in the mini garden. Here are some pics of us enjoying the backyard.
