I was anticipating not having any time to write tonight because I would be working fervently to load our U-Haul for Phase 1 of our scheduled move tomorrow to Ocean Shores. However, this cannot be done without a truck and, after several aggravating hours today, U-Haul failed to deliver the truck! Not only did we end up with no truck, but our U-Haul Neighborhood Dealer at the Raymond Shell station was extremely discourteous and unfriendly during the process. Though it was HE who kept making mistake upon mistake, he acted like we were ruining HIS day.
All is not lost. We've rented a truck instead through Penske Truck Rental in Aberdeen. We'll load the truck Friday and do the move Saturday...during our first forecasted gale of the season (predicted 55 mph winds). Oh joy! Not only will we get to do TWICE AS MUCH driving, but we get to do it during a monsoon.
