We close on our new house and begin the moving process exactly one week from today.
This whole moving thing sucks. Especially the part about having to take your buyers schedule in to account. Or rather, their lacking of taking my schedule in to account.
See, we have to close on our current house before we can close on the new one. After waiting for our buyers to decide their closing time, we found out yesterday that it will be Thursday, 9/29 at 4 pm. No big deal right? Wrong! See we have to be out of the house by 5pm on Friday. So if you do the math, that gives us less than 24 hours to clean our new house, move and then clean our old house. We were originally supposed to have all day Thursday and Friday, if we did the closing Thursday morning.
I’m a little pissed. I don’t think these buyers are trying to be jerks, they just don’t realize how their decisions are screwing us over.
Oh and the other thing is that I couldn’t book movers until we had a closing time. Otherwise I would have scheduled someone for Thursday but obviously that wouldn’t have worked. Yesterday I was calling around and literally only 2 movers in the entire city are available Friday morning. And one of them seemed really hinky so we’re going with the other. Ugh.
I’ll be so glad when this is all over and we can settle in to our new home!
On another note – I was able to get back to taking photos for You Capture this week! With everything going on, photography has sort of been far from my mind. But this week’s theme was “Industrial” and as I was leaving work around 7:30 pm the other night, I saw the construction site across the street backlit by the sunset and knew it would be perfect!
By the way, this big 12-story building will be my new work home in about 2 years. It’s been fun to watch the progress of the construction and I look forward to moving there one day. Oh wait, did I say ‘moving’? I don’t think I want to do that again for a LONG time!
Don’t forget to head over to I Should Be Folding Laundry to see what others have done on this You Capture Theme!
