Our stuff finally arrived today! Our belongings have traveled for over 3 months, and today, the movers pulled up in a big truck and offloaded our belongings. Now our back room is completely full of boxes, and I have to go through the boxes and inventory them to make sure they all survived the trip; but, at least our stuff is here.
When I told the truck driver that it took over three months for our belongings to get to New Zealand he informed me that the rest of the load on his truck belonged to a woman who moved from Hawaii, and she had been waiting 5 months for her stuff!
All of our boxes filled our back bedroom nearly to the ceiling. Let the sorting begin.
