Woohoo! Our Container of Stuff Arrived!
Here is Sefu breaking the "Seal" to our container. It's nice to know that it made the ocean voyage safely.
The next task was to remove the braces that held our things tightly together.
The guys were just wonderful about carrying our very heavy furniture up the 21 steps to the second floor. They very carefully put together our china cabinet. I am totally amazed that none of the glass on the furniture broke.
It pained us to see all the packing paper and foam that was used to pad our furniture and things. Our moving fellows here in Hawaii was amazed at the care that was given to our things. They said our Glen Ellyn Movers did a fabulous job in Illinois. Sefu said they would come and pick up our other boxes and packing in a few days after we unpacked our other things. He reassured us that some of it would be recycled or reused.
Here's the guys. D.J., Tony and Sefu. They were just wonderful. Now comes the monumental job of unpacking and finding a place for everything.
