Quite cozy here in my new swanky 441 sq. ft. studio apartment. It’s about the size of my former kitchen and livingroom combined. It also comes with a killer view of an office building wall and a parking space with 3 inches to spare on both sides of my car. At least no one will ding it other than me. On the bright side, it’s 3 blocks to work, a good, quiet neighborhood close to shopping and dirt cheap. I drool at the thought of the amount of money I am saving. I got my cable and Internet today. Finally, some entertainment now that I don’t have Nemo or Emily to make me laugh.
I just dropped off Fil at the airport. It’s just me now. Exciting and sad at the same time.
So apparently there was some miscommunication. That’s code for someone screwed up and we don’t know who. We’ll move in at 9:30am and Fil will take a later flight. At least that gives us a good night to chill tonight. The original plan was for us to move in a few things today and just crash at the apartment until the move in, but we Pricelined a hotel room. In the end, this is probably better.
So we got to the apartment at 4pm and they are closed. Closed as in no one in the office and no way for me to move in. That also means no moving in tomorrow. I am royally pissed. Stay tuned.
We have just arrived in Bellevue. First stop: Home Depot to get some hardware to ease the unloading of the TT.
8:30am. Ugh, we’re so tired. We got a full night’s sleep, but we both feel pretty exhausted. It’s amazing how tiring driving can get. There were some hold-your-breath moments while coming down the west side of the Rockies in the pitch dark. Idaho doesn’t have the best lit roads. We were very glad to see Spokane. BTW, it’s pronounced spock-ANNE.
The good news is, there’s probably only 6 more hours of driving left. The bad news is, we still have to unload everything. Fil’s been a wonderful sport for going along with my grueling schedule.
We plan on seperating the TT from the mothership near, but somewhere well outside, Seattle. Hopefully, there will be a Home Depot and we’ll be able to buy supplies to build a ramp off the trailer if needed while being able to use a big parking lot. Then, we’ll drop off the trailer and head over to the storage place and unload just before they close. It’s going to be a tight schedule. We’ll see how the timing works.
Washington. Finally. Idaho was very tiring, but our Holiday Inn in Spokane is just 25 sleepy minutes away.
