Moving ! !

It's officially official. We're moving.
Yay! Good riddance, evil landlord - we bought our own place.
(It's just across the parking lot, so most everything can be walked from point A to point B.)

Ok, it's a condo so we still have to follow someone else's rules, but there is a good chance that the enforceable rules will be written out so the residents know what the enforceable rules are. *Ahem* This will be a luxury not available at our current place since the new owner took over earlier this year.

Yeah, yeah... don't comment here about tenant's rights and various laws. It doesn't matter at this point. I'm not wasting my energy on those dopes.

HALF the books I had to move, originally uploaded by bitterpea.

(This photo is not ours, but is approx what we're going to be dealing with when it comes to moving the 10'x6' bookcase, which is full. I think we have 4x or 5x that many books.)

We move at the end of the month. This month. It happened really fast, if you haven't noticed. But that's just how we roll, I guess. Frank and I dated for two months before he proposed - and obviously I said "yes" - so we can go from pulling a credit report to find out if we qualify for a mortgage (really to decide if we would go for a mortgage vs. college student loans for Pam) to setting a closing date within TWO WEEKS.

Yeah, very fast. From mortgage inquiry to getting the keys to our new digs in 5 weeks.


Anyhoo, this blog may be a little quiet during the next few weeks as we scramble to organize, clean out and move our huge pile of crapola precious belongings. Once settled, we'll take you on a tour, complete with before and after photos.

  1. Oh good luck with the move! I hate moving - done it WAY too much!! But moving across to a nearby location is always a little easier with all those "precious belongings". :) All the best ~Sharon
