Josh's New House

"Auntie Rela, my house is bigger than your house!" That's what Josh says. Sometimes.

So finally, Josh has a new house. Or I should say Joey and Sheng has moved in to their new house!

That's right! New house! Spanking clean, new house!

They moved in more than a week ago. Here are some photos of the move:

There were 4 men, 3.5 women and 1 boy who moved the stuff from the apartment to the new house. (A big departure from the dozens during our Boise moving days!) The men were Joey, Al, Daddy and Tristan (Tristan is a new fried here.) The women were Sheng, Ann and Mamang. The 1/2 woman is me since I was not very functional actually. :(

And of course the only boy was Josh, and his helping was captured by my camera as evidence that he indeed helped, too! (The other 2 children in the photos are Tristan and Marisa's children - Jad and Jasele.)

And for the record...Budget truck rental services is not good at all. Their 1-800 number took a reservation. Then when it was time to get the truck from the assigned branch, the branch said that there was no reservation. Then the branch would not call their 1-800 number and instead had Joey call the 1-800 number. The nerve! Joey had to be the one to connect the branch to the 1-800 number. No good system and procedures. No good customer service.

And you wonder how they even can imagine to compete with U-Haul? Maybe just from a capacity standpoint. Meaning, they are just the overflow from U-Haul. When all U-Haul trucks are reserved and unavailable, then people go to Budget truck rental. Boo... Boo... Not a good business model.

Anyway back to the new homeowners...Exciting times are ahead - filling up the home, decorating, arranging, painting... Home Depot and Lowes are going to be their new favorite store soon!

Have a great week-end!

Congratulations, Joey,Sheila and Josh! Ayan, 2 houses na ang puwede naming matuluyan pag nakadalaw kami sa Texas...

Rela, ba't sabi mo, 1/2 count ka lang- kasi hindi ka functional. Are you????

Rela Pantaleon-Manigsaca August 16, 2008 at 10:40 AM  

I was wishing I was ??? that's why I was 1/2 functional. But no, I was not ???

Hane, Renan, Adie and Ian have plans to visit in April. Sama kayo!!!

Thanks Rela for the nice article of our new house! I beg to disagree you are not functional kasi obviously your role was the pictures and documentation (this article) of our move. Im guilty di ako naka forward ng ibang pics.

Ge, thanks as well. Y'all are very welcome to stay here. Josh will be happy to see with Elijah and Eliyah!
