I just need to preface this post with a note that the post before this one didn't actually publish until I published this one, so I thought it was gone for good. I'm much too tired and cranky to redo this one to make sense after the last one, so you'll just have to deal with it. Oh my goodness, what a month. Moving is crazy! The physical labor was bad enough, but then having to inform everyone of our new address and phone #, and worst of all, new email address put me right over the top. I swear one of these days I'm going to move to a remote island and cut off all communication with the outside world except for immediate family and a few friends and just grow my own produce and hang around. I know farming isn't easy, but I can pretend, right?
The new place is nice, and we even have pictures up on the walls in some of the rooms. We are finally completely out of the old place, as of today, with the small exception that we have to mow the grass once more if we don't want it to come out of the security deposit. My mom hired the carpet cleaning people to clean the rest of the duplex for us too, so that was amazing. I was dreading that. Cleaning is not really my thing, as I'm sure most of you are well aware.
I handed over the keys to the landlord today, which went better than I had expected considering the fact that she tried to force us to sign another lease by saying we didn't give her enough notice. Whatever, our lease was up. We don't have to stay. She's just mad because she doesn't have the other half rented out right now either.
Moving on from mildly good news to awful news, apparently our good car is done for. It looks like the transmission is shot and probably the engine as well. I can't even imagine what we're going to do at this point, so I'm just pretending to myself that it's no big deal. At least we have two cars, and every time I start to think about it, I just remind myself that Jordan can walk down the stairs all by himself now, which distracts me every time. Hmmm...I suppose I should go shower now. I have almost as much trouble keeping myself clean as I do keeping the house clean. But I promise I will try to write more often. Hasta la vista!
