Well, it isn't easy, but I am doing it. Moving on up to the de-luxe apartment in the sky. Two bedrooms, no waiting. haha! I talked with the owners on Saturday evening, they came by Sunday morning and the deal was made. My rent is only $65 more for that extra room (and the livingroom is bigger)...it is worth it. After next weekend, we should be completely relocated. We are going to clean our vacancy as deeply as possible, in hopes of not depleting my deposit fund. Whatever they have to spend out of what I put down when I originally moved in, I will have to replenish. I am hoping they will go easy on me.
I worked on Saturday and it was really busy. I babysat on Saturday evening, but it was kind of cheaty as I went over late and all the babies were asleep. I just watched tv, while their parents went cosmic bowling. My kind of gig.
Yesterday, Sunday, was mostly devoted to beginning the move. We actually got quite a bit done. We have only been there a little over a year, so haven't accumulated a great deal of stuff that isn't absolutely necessary. Just trying to get my utilities switched over and all that. Guh. So far, I have the electricity scheduled to be switched and I have the DirecTV people coming out. But I am having less luck trying to schedule the gas to be turned on and the switching of the internet service. These folks are hard to pin down...mostly because I don't know account numbers and things...they just take my money automatically each month and I don't have bills sitting around handily with numbers on them. I need to get organized :-)
Recognize this picture from Saturday? Okay, well, you can see our new apartment there...see the arrow? I am there. I will show you the inside when we get settled a bit.
So, those of you who were rooting for me to get my own room...yay team! Girlie Girl's arguments were sound and I was able to move forward. But I will be so glad when the move is OVER. What do you remember most about a move that you made? Good or bad, I'd love the story. And please...send me energetic thoughts!!!
