Have you ever seen the movie Pure Luck? Because let me tell you… this move to Arizona has been some of the worst luck I’ve ever had. It’s been so ridiculous in fact that you wouldn’t believe it unless I made a comprehensive list.
So here you are:
We got a late start getting out on the road because one of our drivers disappeared at Walmart for an hour
U-haul’s system went out nationally and double charged us for the trailer
Car’s AC went out as soon as we hit Mesquite
We tried to see Hoover dam. It was closed.
Our other car wasn’t put on the trailer correctly and almost fell off in the middle of the desert
Our credit card stopped working because of the unusual location even though we informed the bank we were moving
Got to the Air BnB late, misunderstood where the entrance was and got chewed out all day for trying to break in
Got locked out of our own gated community as we were trying to move in
Brought an air mattress for our helpers… didn’t bring an air pump
Got two replacement mattresses and a pump… that pump was broken
The flight we purchased for our helpers was delayed like three hours. Didn’t know about it until after they had gone through security
Someone in our building was smoking and it was blowing into our apartment
It took 4 trips to the DMV to get registration done because of random misunderstandings
Caterpillars keep crawling in through the bottom of our front door 🤷🏻
Our pool turned green
Jack had diarrhea for the first week
And then because of the diarrhea Jack had bad diaper rash the second week
I spent like 15 minutes picking out the most gentle face wash/moisturizer I could find at the store. I was allergic to it.
Dan’s bike got stolen off our porch
After fixing the AC we took our car to get tint put on the windows and our MECHANIC’S car broke down and he couldn’t get to it until the next day
We went to three different restaurants because we had gift cards. NONE OF THE GIFT CARDS WORKED
The ONE thing I was madly pregnancy craving does not exist here in AZ
The radiator in the OTHER CAR broke down
And literally as I was typing up this list, Dan came in to tell me that the plug on my laptop just SPARKED and EXPLODED. So I’m trying to write this post on my phone.
This probably all sounds made up. IT’S NOT. Hopefully, a meteor isn’t about to fall on us. Um… Help?
