We got another call about Ryan will be a few days sooner (again) because we have to get him back to Michigan. There was yet another mishandling of paperwork and it didn't get transferred out here as promised. Jeff had a rather heated discussion with Ryan's sergeant, but it produced nothing. The rules will not be bent, changed, or altered to accommodate. Long before we moved, we had specifically asked them if Ryan could be sent to boot c*mp from here and were assured that he could. There was 'no need' for him to stay in Michigan.

We ARE glad we brought him out here, so that he can see where we are living, but we would have made other arrangements for his truck.

I will post more later with some pictures (yes, I finally took some!!). We had a MUCH better day yesterday. :) Right now, though, I need to call the moving company because they did NOT pick up our second load in Michigan, as they promised. Some of Ryan's paperwork got left there with his stuff and he needs it before he leaves--which now looks like it will be the 10th, rather than the 18th.

If you want to pray that the moving company gets their act together, that would be nice. :) They required full payment when they delivered our things here on Monday, so now they have little incentive to get us the rest of our stuff. Grrrrr..... Oh...and our neighbor stayed home yesterday to let them in our house--but they never showed up or called to say they weren't coming!!

Ugh. What an ordeal.

Who is the moving company that I might avoid them like the plague?

Allied Moving Company

You need to tell Allied Moving Company that you have a blog and all your followers WILL know about this delay. Yeah, I'm sure they will be really intimidated by that! Little do they know that the adoptive community is huge and word spreads FAST.

I'm so sorry about the ordeal with Ryan. Golly, could things get more complicated??

I will be praying for you!!
