Well, sort of. I am still in Chicago, and Jim is in TN. We moved into the new house in Harrogate, what a trip that was. Dad and I drove the truck down on Thursday, Nov 1. we get down there walk into the house and there was crap all over the place. The contractor who was doing work on the house never cleaned anything up. Jim call the landlord and asked him what was going on. Needless to say, we couldn't start unpacking the truck like was orginally planned. So we drove back to the other house in LaFollette that night. Friday, the contractor was supposed to show up at 8am...he didn't. Dad and I started cleaning the house with the cleaning supplies I could get that was in the front of the truck. As this was going on, DirectTV came to install our cable. Pest control came to take care of the mouse problem (yes, mice!), and a cleaning crew came in later in the day to clean what I was NOT going to clean. Friday afternoon we were able to finally start emptying the truck. Jim had a couple of buddies come and unload the big stuff. So Friday and Saturday were very busy days trying to get the house in order because Sunday, dad and I were flying back to Chicago. Here are a few pictures of the house.
