So yesterday I took the day off work to sign my new apartment lease.
In the morning Cheryl and I went to crossfit and then I started packing. I forgot how miserable it was. I also regret selling all the stuff I had accumulated when I lived in Morristown at all our garage sales. Moving into a new place is definitely an investment in the beginning. I am trying to take as much stuff from home and buy as little as possible.
We headed down to Philly around 1:30 for my 3pm appointment.
I decided to live in an apartment complex as opposed to a house. The main reason is all my utilities will be included in the complex. I hate being cold. I have a space heater in my bedroom because I am always cold in the winter. With my utilities included I can turn up the heat (or AC) as much as I want and not have to pay a crazy bill.
My apartment is still technically being refurbished. They are putting in new carpets as well as a new toilet and bathtub.
I am not freaking our yet about the move, but by next week I will be the Tasmanian Devil running around packing!
After we had dinner plans with Karen and her mom to go to my favorite restaurant Blue Duck. Of course sometime great was followed by something not so great. PSE&G called to let us know there was a gas leak under my mom’s car…..2 hours back home!
We cancelled our dinner plans and drove home so they wouldn’t tow the car.
We got home to a huge hole in front of our house!
Luckily they didn’t tow the car, but they were using a jackhammer outside. We were starving at this point so we left to get dinner.
They were still there when we got back!
They have to change out our gas line, but they said it won’t be too destructive.
I will try to post as much as I can, but the next few weeks are going to be crazy. After I get settled, though, I should have a lot to write about!
