Moving Day



So the much anticipated day is finally upon us: moving day. We had everything lined up from the cleaners to the movers and everything in between. We had a plan! Unfortunately, mid-day, those plans were thrown out the window... When the cleaning crew arrived, there was still too much work being done and too many workers around. Cleaning the house at this point would have been futile. This directly meant we couldn't sleep in the house that night. It is beyond dusty and in need of a deep clean before anyone can live there. That's the reason I booked a cleaning
company who specializes in post-construction clean-up. It became very clear we'd have to come up with a plan B, and quickly! The logical thing to do was to stay in a hotel overnight, but one that accommodates pets, seeing as we have two little fur buddies. In the meantime, we still had to vacate the rental place, so all of our stuff is sitting on a tarp in the basement, so that it's out of the way for the workers finishing things off. I guess that will leave me with a patch of carpet to clean later, but we're making the most out of a less-than-ideal situation. This also means we are literally homeless until the cleaning is complete. Thank goodness for supportive family and friends willing to dog-sit at last minute. I've never relied on my network so much than during these last few months! Fingers crossed tomorrow goes smoothly.
