How'd the move go?  

I'm just gonna copy this straight outta an e-mail I just wrote to egheaumaen.  Enjoy!

It went.  And went.  And went.  We expected the movers to take about three hours to load up everything and about half that to unload, plus two hours in between for the drive.  They took six hours to load, were stopped at the weigh station at the top of the grade and weren't allowed to continue until a mechanic fixed something on their axle so the drive took about three and a half hours, and two hours to unload.  After which, of course, they and we were all exhausted and just wanted to get some sleep, so we didn't ask silly things like, oh, where they put the screws and such needed to reassemble my desk.

Oh, and they weren't able to get everything in the truck, so we've taken three trips back to La Habra with Jen's station wagon, and it looks like there's quite a few loads left to go.  After all this, we still may end up renting a U-Haul.

Just got Internet access today.  Also just got hot water today.  Got my desk reassembled and the computer hooked up, got the TV/DirecTV/TiVO hooked up (although no DVD player, stereo, XBox, etc - I think that may be part of tomorrow's project), got the couch set up where it's gonna be.  Phone is up and working.

And despite the huge mess in the house we're renting, almost everything we own is in boxes in the garage.

There's still a LOT to do, but we're starting to settle in.  It's exciting!
