I Suppose Now It Is Official...

Hmmm....I guess I forgot to tell ya'll. It's cuz writing it down makes it official and I'm not really sure I want it to be...

It's the right decision. I know it is. But it makes me sad. And, I don't know if you remember this from about a year ago, but I HATE PACKING!

We have decided, reluctantly but whole-heartedly, to move in with my parents for a year. If we continue renting we are never going to be able to save enough money to buy a house. So, we decided to move in, pay them rent equal to half our rent now, and pay off all our debt (except our student loans) and be able to buy a house pretty soon after that. Even if we stay with them less time we will be in a better financial position than we are now. So we have begun the arduous task of packing. Not only packing but sorting things into get rid of, need at Momma's, and this can be stored for a year. And the need at Momma's furniture and stuff can't be more than can fit into two rooms. Not much more at least.

And, Robert is building a storage shed for us! For about $1500 instead of $4000 that it would cost to buy one.

And I, as always, am dragging my feet packing.

The last two places we left, we left on kinda bad terms. We had issues with management or the apartment, etc. This place we love. We love the apartment. We love the management. We love that they are fixing things THAT AREN'T YET BROKEN!!! Like replacing the siding. It needed to happen but it wasn't completely rotted off.

The point? I should be packing. But instead I'm complaining. So I'm leaving now...

Rachael, text me! We'll figure it out!

Free Delivery!

So I wasn't planning on writing today. I was just starting to pack (one box down. Full of fake flowers.) when I saw this on the piano. I think it came in the mail or was stuck on the door. I've been walking by noticing it for days but only just really looked at it. It was very amusing and I felt the need to share.

In case you can't read it, it says the phone number then "Free Delivery." Then the hours of operation and then some lines highlighting the fact that there's a "10% discount on all carryout orders." But delivery is free. LOL

And, Rachael-friend, I tried to treat you to Chick-Fil-A cuz I had a gift card and you missed your chance! Now if you want to hang out, I think you'll have to help me pack! : )

EDITED TO ADD: Guess what else was in the mail? A FIVE DOLLAR GIFT CARD TO WALMART. For free. Just cuz they built a new store. Well...combined the old one with the Albertson's that was next door but went out of business. And took over all the space that was between them.


I've Been Told...

That I'm missed.

I'm sorry.

However I'm tired and in a funk and feel like the post would be nothing but a jumble of complaining so I'm avoiding writing anything at all.

I hope to be back to my normal cheery ranting and raving self soon. : )
