EINSHouse update (since it's been a hot minute):
Plumbing and fixtures and yard and shower doors and dishwashers, oh my!
|"Get in the shower with me so I can take a photo!"|
|This is private business!|
|Laundry room sink!|
|Garage sink and Hurricane panels for the windows (SC requirement).|
|"Help! I've fallen and I can't get up!"|
Also, why we can't just share a mailbox stand with the neighbor is beyond me, poor mail person..
|The rear speakers were moved back so Teh German and I wouldn't have to have a couch placement debacle (again).|
|He was so excited to play with the fridge.|
Why Megan can't have nice things: The first thing I did was test to see if the water dispenser worked.. It does.
|My tub is complete!!!|
|Blind slats selfie!|
Is it crazy to anyone else that we will be in House within
Oh yeah, it's official... We'll be closing MAY 3rd!!!!
ZWEIIf you've been a Gentle Reader for a while, you might remember that I often don't acknowledge the month of May. IDK why, it's a me thing, but it's real. Teh Bear sent me this powerpoint once and it still applies.
I don't think I'll have that option next month since so many big things are happening. Mostly House and moving related things, but also I need to start prepping for Germany. I needed to finish out my Duolingo tree (I'm so close it hurts and I haven't had extra time to work on it to finish it out). I need to pack, unpack, and then pack for 3 weeks of vacation (DC/Germany/DC). I need to order dog food and have it sent to Teh MD-AR so Phil and Meri can eat while we're away.
I also need to wash every.single.item in our closet to get rid of any lingering mold issues, as well as wipe down ALL my shoes which is infuriating. All of Teh German's clothes that never got unpacked after he moved out of The Closet also should probably be checked/washed before we leave, uuuuggghhhhh. Did I mention that the washer at Shitty House bangs really badly on the spin cycle because the owner didn't want to get it fixed when I moved in after I reported it as having an error? Yeah, well, it's off balance even worse now that it was before. BTW. I'm NOT the one who washed a dog bed in it. Just sayin'... my dogs don't have long black hair.
Oh yeah, and Shitty House Owner wants to come and "make a new list of repairs to be made" (which sounds a lot to me like "find issues to blame on the tenant to keep her security deposit") the 2nd weekend of May. Mmmkay. Whatevs. I'm hoping to have the house completely empty by then and he can take his Shitty House and shove it. He agreed to let us us terminate the lease a month early, but only one month, not May and June, which is slightly irritating, but whatever. That just means that I can use the house as a hotel if enough people come to help us move. I'm assuming he needs the money for the repairs? IDK. I'm just over the entire situation and house.
Is it May yet?
DREIIz funnies for jou:
|My entire day at work ^^|
VIERWell that escalated quickly...
I think I'll just start calling myself part of the Oregon Trail Generation...
It is still a shame that Harry Potter isn't real.
Turk and JD made bromance acceptable.
Funnies found here, here, and here.
Depression is hard. #whatyoudontsee
FÜNF10 things that made me happy this week:
- Giving my builder a handle of rum for dealing with
usme. I owe him so much more.
- Being reunited with Meri and Phil after a weekend of being away. Being away from them for almost 3 weeks while we're in Germany may kill me.
- Snuggles with my Meri-Meri
- Receiving an appraisal value for more than we are paying for the house.
- Texting with Teh German in German and only having to look up a few words.
- Stingrays playoff tickets... even with dog teeth marks.
- Homemade meatballs, homemade spaghetti sauce, and meeting new people.
- Technology offering previous versions of that stupid shared document that magically lost MANY changes after I stopped working on it on Wednesday.
- The ability to draft this post at work.
- A SET IN STONE CLOSING DATE!!!!!!!
Happy Friday, Gentle Readers.
Linking up with these ladies since it's FFFFRRRRRRIIIIIIDDDDAAAAYYYY!!!!!!!!!
