Our instructions to the movers were: Anything in the garage upstairs or in the garage downstairs or in the pole barn . . that stuff all goes to the rental storage building. Everything else goes to the house!
I had several crockpot meals planned. The first few days I didn’t see the crockpot but figured it would turn up. It didn’t. Yesterday morning Vince got up early before it got too hot and went to the storage building to dig for some things. I had Speck’s small crate in my car but the big crate was one of the last things to go onto the moving van because Speck had been in it. Vince told them we needed it at the house but obviously it was one of the first things they saw when they opened the truck and the storage building was the first stop so the crate went into the building.
We about had war with the movers because they left my deep freeze in the storage building . . way at the back of the storage building. Vince said “you’re going back to get it” and they weren’t but after a bit of discussion and a phone call or two, they drove back to the storage building and got the freezer.
Vince did find the crockpot.
I had written on all four sides of the box “crock pot”.
And, on the top and bottom of the box, I had written “Kitchen” and “crock pot”. How on earth did they figure that was something that would go into storage along with Vince’s tools, the weed eater, the lawn mowers, the garden tiller, the woodworking equipment??
All’s well that ends well. I will have the crockpot loaded and sitting on the back deck next week . . trying to cook meals without heating up the house.
