The new lease has been signed. Had to get a new one since we are going to a new building. Luckily the landlords are pretty nice (they like our dog- we have an 'in'!) and they kept our rent the same, even though the new building is about $30 a month more, so come September, well, we will be paying that. We also got our transfer fee waived, too. I got all the important things switched over: internet and electric. That will happen on the 5th so we have to be moved in completely by that day. Which isn't a problem. Also set up a change of address form online for the USPS- how freaking easy is that? You plug in your current addy, the new addy, and whether its for an individual or a family, and then set the date! They forward all the mail to the new address then.
Awesome. Also- it costs $1.
To transfer the cable, it costs us $25.
Nothing for the electric, and nothing for the apartment. So far, it's only cost us $26 to move.
We got free boxes from Brian's work.
Oh I take that back, I spent $30 on laundry detergent and some moving/cleaning supplies. All in all, its only cost a little bit of money. I will have to pay for new carpet though, which could be as much as $200 and as little as $100 so I've decided to sell a few things on eBay.
Hoping people buy it! I got a lot of watchers so I hope someone comes in last minute and snipes it! Or a bidding war. That would be most awesome.
On the cleaning front- I only did a few loads of laundry yesterday (probably what most households do in one day) and then I got a horrible migraine and had to lay down. I slept a few hours, but it still didn't go away. So I popped some asprin, and went back to sleep. Woke up feeling nauseous and the migraine moved behind my eyes, so it was impossible to turn on lights or look at my phone, or do anything. I just lay there and sobbed a while. Finally it went away. I am pretty sure it was a caffeine headache/food headache. I hadn't really eaten yesterday since I was so busy. But I had some tea and ate WW 3-cheese ziti marinara, and all was right in the world.
Brian's been recruited to work today but only for a few hours. Then we are going through the closets and throwing away everything that we dont want. I'm determined to have a smooth move with as little as possible. Just pretend I am on an episode of Clean House, only without the yardsale. Mayhem and foolishness! Everything that can go, will.
