CalmedByFish Posted November 17, 2021 Share Posted November 17, 2021 (edited) Days late, sick, with the move costing 8K more than we thought it would, and even with an incident of harassment the likes of which should not be written about here, we arrived... maybe 3 days ago? I've lost track of time. The whole experience was one of the most miserable experiences of my life, and I say that as a parent who's lost children. It appears that all my fish stayed healthy, and most plants can recover. The only exception was my container of fry less than a month old. There were almost 50. Now there's 2. I suspect a bacterial infection, but at this point, I hardly care what the cause was. I'd write a novel here, if it wouldn't suck the life out of me to spend the effort. I just wanted, at the least, to tell you I did get to the new place (mostly) safely. Tip to any of you who ever need to move more than a couple hours away: Do not turn your belongings over to a moving company. If you have to say goodbye to 3/4 of the bulk of your possessions in order to rent a small truck and keep everything under your own control, do it. I would rather have lost 3/4 of my belongings than to have gone through what we just did with the moving company we hired. (Surely companies with integrity exist, but there's no way to know if you've got one until the move is finished.)
