After what has to be the longest day ever, we finally received a phone call from the driver of the car transport vehicle.
We have booked two adjoining rooms in Flagstaff, AZ, for tomorrow night. We are really hoping the road rises up to meet us and we get to Fowler before the movers and the transporters!!!
Since the washer and dryer are probably half-way to Colorado now, we found it necessary to find a laundromat in Camarillo. They are rated. Although not the highest ranked, the Fluff and Fold was three doors down from Trader Joe’s. And I’m going to need dark chocolate.
Did you know that the washer was $6? Holy Moly! The dryer was .25 for every five minutes. I am out of touch.
Tom Petty says it best: “the waiting is the hardest part.”
Oh how spoiled I have become with my own washer and dryer. They have been on the road since Wednesday and are probably half-way to Denver by now.
Big loads are $6.00 and it costs 25 cents to dry your clothes for five minutes! What a lovely affluent county Ventura is. But not for the people doing laundry here at the Fluff and Fold on Carmen.
So, up at 5:45! Pre-cleaning before the cleaning crew gets here!
Why do we do this!?!
Good team, tho’. Tidy.com. And yesterday’s big nightmare? Our sweet realtor Betsy Dillon will be there for us to open up for the moving van. Phew!
So here it is: the nightmare. We were told yesterday, the movers would be here at nine o’clock and they arrived at six forty-five. Also Jim called the movers and told them not to arrive in Fowler before July first. That message never got recorded. The problem is we don’t know when the Miata will be picked up (car movers recommended by moving company).So I am hoping and Jim is stressing that we make it back to Colorado in time to let the movers into our house. Ah, me…
Down to the nitty-gritty, folks. Spectrum went back to the store and we have our phones only. It will be interesting to see what we miss, if anything, without television and internet! I, secretly, am looking forward to the break.
The Mighty Pacific Ocean I will be leaving.
Beautiful lakes, rivers, and majestic mountains I will be experiencing!
