I’m not done-done by any stretch, but after today I should be over the biggest humps. I hope.
July 30: Move my few possessions down from the upstairs flat to the basement storage unit, help my friends start moving in.
July 31: Have massive migraine
August 1: Have panic attack
August 2: I arrive at 7am and start fixing things and moving in boxes, Junkman arrive at 11, locksmith at noon, locksmith leaves at 3pm, Painter arrives for tour at 3, junkman leave at 4, me at 5.
August 3: Cleaners arrive at noon, work for 6 hours, they leave, I keep cleaning, my parents arrive at 9pm, I give them a tour, and then FINALLY spend the night in my new place.
August 4: Get up super early to return rented rug doctor and pick up toilet. Dad comes by and fixes a couple things, moves fridge
August 5: Install a/c
August 6: Painter starts, take toilet out of car, dishwasher arrives
August 7: Many loads of laundry, bed arrives and gets set up, I pick up bathroom sink
August 8: scrub out kitchen cupboards, scrapper arrives and empties out basement and final things, weed and mow front lawn, build towel rack and bedside table.
August 9: Painter comes back, I put down vinyl floor in the kitchen and set up screens in the living room.
August 10: Plumber at 7am, painter at 8am, I get a new sink and toilet installed
August 11: I get up by 7am to move things out of the way, the movers are here by 9am to bring in my boxes and furniture, hopefully I get my second a/c installed by evening (it’s SO HOT) and the boxes set up so that I can continue to function.
And that’s it! Done! Except for the final day of painting. And unpacking all the boxes. And waiting for my new custom made sofa to arrive.
PHEW! Frankly, I’m impressed I managed to write any blog posts at all 🙂
