So, I've been packing for the past little while at home. I guess I want to make sure that I am on top of everything. Most of the time when I move, I have a week off of work. Well this year I used up all my vacation time already, so I only have one day left. One precious day. I don't get any more until April. And I can't call in sick, because everyone knows I am moving that day. I am hoping to take February 1 off because that is the day of our move. I am wondering if we may be able to get the keys to the new place a day early. When we originally asked about moving in early, we were told that we would have to pay a pro-rated amount for the number of days we wanted in early. We figure it won't be too expensive to get it one day early. We can move a number of boxes etc with our cars, and then rent the truck on the first, and do the major furniture.
Argh... It is frustrating just thinking about it, but I don't know why I worry, everything gets done.
We had to go out the other day to get a new washer and dryer. Yay.... our own laundry machines. Awesome! I can't wait to do laundry after 9:30pm just because I can.
I am so excited about the new place.
Angela and I scored a used couch... (ya I know used .. yucky, but we own a steam cleaner.. pets you know, and can clean it up a bit, plus we know where it's coming from) for $20 for our basement room. The room I intend on putting the X-box in. As well, we managed to score a sweet retro lamp as well... totally FREE. I'll post some pics of it when we get all settled in.
The only things I have to do now, are contact the cable company to transfer our service to the new address, and rent the truck. I already got us all set up for the Utilities etc. I hope that I'm not forgetting anything..
The only other thing is we have to build a gate on our new back fence, it doesn't come with one, and low and behold it is the only unit in the whole complex that doesn't have one. Man.
