Sometimes plans fail

The last 24 hours did not work out as planned. As many people know we were supposed to move into our new house.

The plan:
Thursday
Pick up Uhaul
Pull uhaul into driveway
Load furniture into truck
Dinner
Clean house sleep

Friday
Clean house
Drop Asher at groomers
Check GrandmaNan and Max into hotel
Sign papers to sell our house and buy new house
Drive uhaul to new house
Lunch
Inspect new house
Buying house complete
Clean house
Pod delivery
Unload truck
Dinner
Sleep

Here's what really happened:
Thursday
Pick up uhaul
Get uhaul stuck in driveway- call cops and tow truck to get out
Park truck across the street
Load furniture across the street
Starts raining
Dinner
Continue loading truck in the dark
Sleep

Friday
Load out last minute furniture
Clean house
Sign unexpected paperwork and email
Drop Asher off at groomers
Check GrandmaNan and Max into hotel
Sign papers to sell our house
More unexpected paperwork to email
Drive uhaul to new house
Lunch
Inspect new house
Find smoking furnace
Get into fender bender
Attempt to sign papers- sellers unreachable- do not close
Check into additional room at hotel
Dinner
Find clothes in truck and check pod delivery
Drive back to hotel
Go to bed late because Max is in new place and won't sleep
Not sleep due to Asher constantly needing to go outside to pee

The Bad News: As of yesterday we find we are homeless.

The Good News: The furnace has been fixed and we should be able to close on Monday.

Cross your fingers.
