Today marks one week since moving day officially and when we closed on our house. It's been a challenge. I can't say that our move has gone smoothly.
Our first night in house, Todd makes a trip to Home Depot at 9:45 ( they close at 10) and we have to replace the thermostat. It was 85 degrees inside our house and too hot to sleep!
Our keypad quit working for good on our garage but fortunately we have our garage door openers now.
My dog Jax had never once been around water, takes a dive in our swimming pool because he saw Lila on the other side of pool. We think he thought it was blue concrete or something since he's never seen a pool. He instinctively started to paddle thank goodness. I took my shoes and glassss off about to jump in.
Lila has discovered rabbits. She has killed 3 of them. She brought a bloody dead one into our room that has carpet.
I had to then find carpet cleaner for the blood. I now have huge stains worse than the blood from the oxy clean.
All we have left at old house is to get my trailer and hook it up to my truck and bring to new house. We've gone to house every night picking up small stuff we didn't want the movers to bother with.
I hurt my right hand pretty good. My thumb and pointer finger are swollen. If I hold anything in that hand, my wrist collapses. Todd and I have cuts and bruises all over from bumping into boxes, moving furniture around, you name it.
My house is too small! I have no room for anything and it's hard to unpack when you don't have a place to put things. I know it will get better eventually but I'm so overwhelmed and I hate it!
Our cable/ internet guy was supposed to be here this past Tuesday. No one showed up or called. Then they were supposed to show up yesterday, nope. After being transferred to 4 people and having to repeat everything 4 times, the earliest they can come is the 22nd. That's 10 days later than the first original date of Tuesday 12! I don't care not having TV the last 10 days and 10 days more, what I do have to have is Internet. Especially now that work is so strict using the web for anything not work related.
Moving sucks!! I hate it . I pray for strength and patience to get my house in order very soon so that I don't hate my house.
I'm grateful to have a newer home to live in. I'm grateful to have a roof over my head. I don't want to sound like a selfish brat. One day, I want to share pictures of the house with y'all but if you were to see them now, you would call the tv show Hoarders and report me. Better yet, they do always put the home together at end of show. Hmmm, maybe they would come unpack and organize for me.
Last night after work we went to old house to pick up trailer, my truck has hitch on it that is locked. Didn't have the key. Looked for hours when I get home and finally found it. Wasted trip!!
Hope y'all have a great weekend. I think y'all know what I'll be doing.
