Almost There

Forgive me for posting and not reading any blogs, I am overloaded! I only have two more days and then I will be moving into my new cute house, and turning 39 again for the second time! Who moves on their birthday?!

So, things that have stressed me out this week:

Dropped a deposit off at the bank over the weekend and put it in the night drop. Bank recorded the deposit on Monday morning and then promptly lost it. Overdraft fees were incurred, still no deposit. Today, they have put the deposit in there (it was posted to someone else's account) and reimbursed me for the overdraft fees - twice! Two deposits, two overdraft fees!

A medical billing office has apparently kept a credit of mine on their accounts since April 2008. I only found out about it in February this year and have tried to get the money back three times, with people promising me that they would start the refund process immediately. On Tuesday I called again to see where it was and was told that there is nothing in the notes and no refund was ever processed. Great! Fuming, I demanded they cut me a check and call me when it was ready so I could go pick it up in person. They got on it straight away and I picked up the check yesterday. And promptly deposited in the bank where my previous deposit was lost! Fingers crossed!

My property manager seems to think that a walk through of the house I am moving into on Saturday is not necessary until AFTER I move in. WTF? So, if there is damage already there, is he going to try and say I did it when I moved in? I don't think so, my camera will be on hand to record everything!

The guy who owns the house needs to put up smoke detectors, deadbolts and a blind on the kitchen window. He has had weeks to do this and has informed the property manager that he has until April 1st to do it so he will do it some time before then. Um hello, my lease starts March 28th. Again, WTF?!

So yes, I have been a little stressed out to say the least, not to mention I also went to a counselling session with my ex last weekend over parenting concerns that I had regarding him, and it was emotionally exhausting, but here is hoping that the weekend goes well and I will be all moved in with no major incidents to report very soon!

I don't have internet at home right now and I am not sure when it will be up and running again, but please, just bear with me!

Ugh, being a grown-up sucks sometimes doesn't it?

I hope the owner gets off his ass and does what he's supposed to, and good for you for sticking to doing an inspection before you move in.

Our move is 4/18... and we JUST realized we also have to bartend on 4/18. Can't afford to pass on the bartending, can't afford to change the move date. So that Saturday we will spend all day moving and then bartend from 4 to midnight, and then I will spend all day Sunday frantically unpacking to get organized for work the next morning... kill me now!

Sorry to hear that your move is already stressful... although in my experience? They pretty much all are. Post pics of the new place, I'm curious! :)

Oh, and happy early birthday!

Ok, so I don't think those are really good excuses for not reading my blog. I'm just saying.....

Just kidding....I hope the move went well and you are now sitting back and sipping a martini!!!!

Good luck with the move
