Imagine my surprise yesterday when the packers who were supposed to be at our apartment between 8:30 AM and 9:30 AM actually showed up five minutes early. Anyone familiar with the concept of Miami Time knows that an estimated arrival time of 8:30 AM - 9:30 AM is code for 11:30 AM - 12:30 PM. Consequently, I was still asleep when they pounded on the door at 8:25 AM. All was well, though, and I got into some clothes and some coffee in record speed.
The packers were able to get all our stuff boxed up in four hours instead of the estimated two days because of our mad organizational and de-cluttering skills, so they are coming back today at 8:30 AM with the truck to pick everything up. Even though that means an extra night of air mattresses and camp chairs for us, it actually gives us more time and space to sort, pack and organize the stuff for the trailer, so it's really a good thing.
We were able to keep on top of them pretty well while they were boxing everything up. So far the only thing we've found that they packed that we didn't want packed was a box of paper napkins. Bygones.
I can only hope this is my last day of getting up early for a while. I need to rest up for the big road trip!
wake me up, before you go, go
