Empty Apartment

Waking up from this nightmare
How's your life, what's it like there?

Take you away from that empty apartment...

If you haven't noticed, I've been MIA the past few days. To briefly, briefly recap:
- My sister got a new job in Nashville and signed a lease on an apartment over Memorial Day
- The interstate moving company picked up her things in June when her old job ended
- She started her new job on July 5 with the movers scheduled to come on July 6, the day she could move in her new apartment
- Movers didn't show up on the 6th
- Movers didn't show up on the 7th
 - Movers didn't show up on the 8th
- You want me to keep doing this?

They finally showed up on the 22nd. Of July. A month after taking her stuff. So I've been in Nashville with my parents and Jared since last Thursday unpacking, organizing, and going on shopping sprees to replace what the movers lost and broke. 
Basically all hell broke loose around here but hopefully some semblance of normalcy will return. In the meantime, I'm horribly backed up on all things blogging so bear with me while I try and play catch up...
...before we go out of town again on Saturday.
(Is it sad I'm hoping for WiFi on vacation? Don't answer that.)

How the sam hell do movers go MIA for a MONTH?

I think I'd be for getting with the Better Business Bureau, the best law firm available, and the local TV station to tell everyone what whacked out idiots the movers are.

Ugh wow..that is just horrible! How can they be so late? Did you guys get money back or anything?

That is nuts! Hope you were able to find some good replacements for your sister's stuff! I LOVE wifi on vacation. I made sure our hotel in Cambodia has it!
