moving...aargh!!!

I just wanted to do a quick post to update everyone and let you all know that we are still alive! We were supposed to move in to our new apartment on Saturday, but Friday night when we did a quick walk through of our new abode we realized that the carpet was too gross for words. So needless to say we had to get the carpet cleaned or changed. This wouldn't have been so bad except for the fact that all of our stuff was boxed and ready for a Saturday move. Our phone and Internet was also disconnected and set up at the new place (this is why I haven't been able to post until now) and now we couldn't move in until Wednesday. So here it is Monday afternoon and Keith, Jason, and I are here cleaning up and trying to see if we can't rid our new apartment of all traces of its previous inhabitants. As we look around the apartment we are seeing more and more things wrong with it. (For example, the kitchen has NO drawers for the silverware. There is not one single drawer that is bigger than 6 inches wide!! How am I supposed to deal with this?!)

Any who, I need to keep cleaning, but I wanted to touch bases and let everyone know that I will be sending out a mass email with our new home phone and address, until then if you need us use my cell phone. Please wish us luck in turning this new place into our new home!!

Is it just me or is it sad that YOU have to do the cleaning before you move into your new place? Don't they have people to do that! It's not fair!

Good luck with the move, it'll be nice to have more space at least!

Is it not your landlords job to have the place clean before you move in? Or are things different in Texas?

I am so excited to see the new place. Have fun moving and don't go too crazy.

Technically I think the complex is supposed to clean our apartment, but since they didn't notice the nasty carpet until we told them about it, we figured it would be safer (I am a bit of a clean freak) for us to reclean before we moved in! Everything is coming a long and most is nice and clean. We are just trying to get rod of a small roach problem now...GROSS!!!
