How is the move going, you ask. Well, it feels like I am in a sort of limbo. When I saw the duplex the middle of June, the landlord told me I would able to move in on July 1st. So I am paying rent in this place and the new place, as well as all the utilities. This is a costly month.
When I went to the new place the afternoon of July 1st nothing had been done. The landlord had told me he would have new carpet in the hallway and living room, new mini blinds throughout, plumbing issue in bathroom ceiling fixed, and I would be able to put my car in the garage. None of that has happened.
Yesterday the carpet was pulled up in the hallway and living room and the huge riding lawn mower and two other mowers and ladders and tools were rearranged in the garage so I can at least start storing boxes in the garage now. The car, though, will not be able to be in the garage yet. I don't need the car in the garage, but it riles me to pay for something and not get it.
Today I am heading over to the new place to continue cleaning. The kitchen is four times the size of the kitchen here in this little apartment so after I get the cupboards cleaned I will start taking over kitchen things. It will get done, just not as I had planned in the timing I had scheduled.
If I ever mention the "move" word again, just slap me silly!
