So, this is going to be a half-assed non weekend post. My half assed pic that I
stole borrowed from Simple Dude is on my other computer. The mac. Oh my Mac how do I miss thee? But I am rabbit trailing....
We get to move into our house today (finally). We were supposed to be moving in Monday and yesterday but the house wasn't ready. Let me elucidate for you all my wonderful stellars.
Imagine if you will, that you spent some 5 plus hours loading a 22 ft truck and realized you were still going to have to get a trailer to get the other stuff that really can't be left behind. One of the last things that you do prior to totally disconnecting is check your email one last time. In your inbox is an email from the property management firm with a time stamp of 6:40pm. This isn't a 'have a safe trip, we can't wait to meet you' email. No, this email was something else entirely.
This email informed us that while doing a final inspection of the cleaning prior to move in, they found black mold in the basement and the air ducts and they were releasing us from our lease. WHAT??? I thought that I was hallucinating due to the stress from packing and loading. Suddenly my question ('WHAT'???) was being echoed by Darling Husband. It was at that moment that I realized I'd spoken it aloud. Really loudly.
Understand, all appliances, beds, and tvs and furniture (and vibrator) are packed in the truck. We were going to be sleeping on air mattresses that night. Suddenly we didn't have anywhere to go? It was incomprehensible. We started calling and leaving messages. Between the two of us we left like 10 messages (each increasingly agitated from the prior) in an hour. Finally we heard from the property management company and were assured that they were getting the mold remediated. However, the house wasn't ready for move in when we arrived. So we've been hanging out in a hotel and hopefully will be starting move in shortly after noon time.
I'll have more adventures to share just wanted to check in. Apologies if it isn't entertaining. Hoping to be back on form once we get settled.
